Definite information about the facelifted Captiva SUV being launched in October this year and hence, here’s a quick update on what all the new Captiva would get along with the exterior and the interior refresh. The SUV, which now adopts the GM family styling with a prominent grille up front, looks much more aggressive than the current version.
This aspect of the SUV could endear it to many prospective buyers. Even on the inside, the twin pod cockpit layout that GM introduced with the Cruze and the Beat will be carried forward to the Chevrolet Captica SUV, thus making for an interior refresh. Engine options though could remain the same although General Motors does sell the Captiva globally with a new 2.2 Liter CRDI diesel engine producing 163 Bhp of shove and 350 Nm of twist.
So this engine might come along to India along with a new range of six speed manual and automatic transmissions. October is when General Motors India has lined up the new Chevrolet Captiva SUV for an Indian launch. With the Captiva SUV arriving in October, expect Ford India to ready up the new Endevour SUV in 2012, also with an automatic transmission option
