GM India launches 2015 version of Chevrolet Captiva

General Motors India on Monday launched the new Chevrolet Captiva 2.2 premium sport utility vehicle, priced between Rs25.13 lakh and Rs27.36 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi). It is available in both manual and automatic versions.

"The launch of the all new MY 15 Captiva is in line with our business plan of capturing the all-important SUV market and growing our market share. The Captiva has been warmly welcomed in markets around the world due to its combination of distinctive styling, refinement, best-in-class safety, comfort and versatility and powerful yet frugal diesel powertrain," Arvind Saxena, GNM India's president and managing director, said.

Billed as the 2015 Chevrolet Captiva, the new model adds a number of equipment and features on the previous model.

Reviews say 2015 Captiva does not have any major upgrades in terms of drivetrain, or even in the looks department.

The new additions on the car include features like 'Cluster Ionizer' which, as the maker describes, generates ions to purify and deodorise cabin interiors; and a new instrument cluster for improved visibility. Among the new comforts are cruise control; third-row heating, ventilation and air-conditioning; an electric parking brake; and rain-sensing wipers and a sunroof.

The rest of the features such as integrated 2-DIN CD/MP3 player with six speakers, tinted automatic windows, leather seats, power mirrors, an eight-way power adjustable driver seat, electronic climate control system etc, are carried forward from the earlier model.
