New Chevrolet Captiva and revised Tavera Neo3 unveiled
Cosmetic changes aside, the new Captiva also has a new heart. So out goes the 2-litre mill in the outgoing model. Under the hood now is a 2.2-litre Common Rail Direct Injection TCDi engine that pumps out 186.5 PS of power @ 3,800 rpm and 424 Nm of torque @ 2000 rpm and is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission . The Captiva will be available in a single trim, LTZ, and priced at an expected Rs. 22 lakhs, ex-showroom Delhi. Sporting a meatier grille that extends from the top of the hood to the base of the bumper, the new Captiva is a far better looking SUV than its predecessor. The Captiva comes with all-black interiors with added convenience features namely Cruise Control, Dual Row Heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system, Electric Parking Brake, Rain Sensing wipers and electric sunroof. A standard Chevrolet 3 year/1,00,000 kms warranty will be on offer.
