The Captiva also gets new 18” alloy rims.

Inside, the Captiva will have new upholstery fabrics in fresh new colours (with leather on top-of-the-range models) and revised trim on the instrument panel.

Higher-spec variants of the captive will now come with keyless entry and start, a dual-zone climate system, an ambient lighting package and heatable rear seats.


This is GM's entry in the small SUV segment, available in both front-wheel and all-wheel drive, in a choice of one turbodiesel and two petrol engines.

The diesel is a 1.7-litre four rated at 96kW, while the petrol line-up comprises a 103kW turbocharged 1.4 and a naturally-aspirated 1.6. All manual-transmission variants come with idle stop as standard.

More expensive version will have Chevrolet MyLink, a system that aggregates content from compatible smartphones - as well as a dedicated smartphone navigation app called BringGo - on to the 180mm high-resolution full-colour touchscreen display, and allow them to access TuneIn internet radio.
