DRIVE TALK NEW LOOK CAPTIVA [Liverpool Echo (England)]
(Liverpool Echo (England) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) CHEVROLET will lift the wraps on the newly styled version of its compact SUV the Captiva at the Geneva Motor Show.
The new Captiva heralds several changes to the front and rear, including new LED tail lamps, angular chrome exhaust tips and a remodelled bumper, while up front it sports a lower bumper, a new mesh grille, restyled foglamps and new 18-inch alloy wheels.
Keyless entry and start becomes standard on higher trim grades and the cabin will boast fresh seat colours, new fabrics and restyled trims in the instrument panel. A dualzone climate system, an ambient lighting package and heated rear seats provide more comfort on select specifications.
The American brand is also showing off its new small SUV, the Trax, which will be available with both front and all-wheel drive, in Geneva.
Due for launch later this spring, the Trax offers a choice of a 140bhp 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine, a 1.6 petrol unit and a 1.7-litre diesel producing 130bhp, and all manual transmission variants come with Start/ Stop technology.
Upper trim grades will feature Chevrolet MyLink technology as standard, a system that shows content from compatible smartphones onto the seven-inch high-resolution touchscreen display. MyLink will also enable users to navigate by means of a smartphone app called BringGo, and will allow them to access TuneIn internet radio.
Chevrolet's European chief Susan Docherty said: "With Captiva and Trax, Chevrolet will offer two very distinct SUVs in Europe.
"Trax combines the agility of a small car and the versatility of an SUV, making it perfect for today's urban explorer. Captiva is the ideal companion for those who want to have some adventure, but feel that they could do with more space, capability and that extra bit of convenience."
