Two new variants of Captiva unveiled

KUALA LUMPUR: Two new variants of the Chevrolet Captiva SUV are now available.

Chevrolet distributor Naza Quest Sdn Bhd has introduced two turbo-diesel Captivas, which use a two-litre diesel VCDI engine that produces 360Nm from 2,750rpm and 163hp at 3,800rpm.

The LT and LTZ variants are fitted with a 6-speed automatic transmission that features Driver Shift Control (DSC) and ECO mode similar to the one found in the petrol-powered Captiva LT.


Like the petrol LT, the turbo-diesel LT comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, while the LTZ is fitted with 19-inch wheels.

Leather seats and features such as electrically-operated parking brake; a three-dimensional sound staging system and a multi-function 4-spoke steering wheel seen in the petrol-powered LT are retained in both diesel variants.

The LTZ further receives an electrochromic rear-view mirror to cut glare from headlights of other cars and leather seats are  perforated for better ventilation and comfort.

Both turbo-diesel SUVs also get the same level of safety gear as the petrol Captiva: active and passive safety systems with dual front airbags supplemented by curtain airbags, all-round disc brakes with anti-lock braking system, electronic brake-force distribution, traction control, Electronic Stability Program including anti-rollover protection and self-levelling suspension system.

Both also have ‘Hill Start Assist’ that prevents the vehicle from rolling backwards when the brakes are released on a slope and ‘Hill Descent Control’ which helps the Captiva maintain a constant speed when descending steep slopes to maximise traction and control.

The 2.0L Turbo-Diesel VCDi AWD LT is priced (OTR without insurance) at RM 165,888; the 2.0L Turbo-Diesel VCDi AWD LTZ at RM168,888; and the 2.4L Petrol ECOTEC AWD LT at RM158,888.

All new Captivas come with a three-year warranty and three years free labour & parts.
