For the interior, Chevrolet will offer leather seats in fresh new colors, new fabrics and restyled trims in the instrument panel.

Press Release

Being widely acknowledged as the creator of the entire SUV segment with the Suburban in 1935, Chevrolet has more than 75 years of experience in designing great sport utility vehicles. At the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, the brand will present the restyled edition of its Captiva compact SUV in Europe for the first time.

The new Captiva introduces several changes to the rear and front of the vehicle, including new LED tail lamps, angular chrome exhaust tips and a remodeled bumper. Up front, it sports a lower bumper, a new grill mesh as well as restyled foglamps. New 18-inch alloy wheels further enhance Captiva’s road presence.

The Captiva will now feature keyless entry and start as standard on upper trims. Inside, the vehicle will boast fresh seat colours, new fabrics (upper specifications: leather seats), and restyled trims in the instrument panel. A dual-zone climate system, an ambient lighting package and heated rear seats provide even more comfort on select specifications.

Offering up to seven seats, along with additional convenience features, the restyled Captiva is a typical SUV for the family. Chevrolet will up the ante even more by launching Trax this spring, its contender for the popular and fast-growing small SUV segment. Trax will be available in front and all-wheel-drive configurations.

"With Captiva and Trax, Chevrolet will offer two very distinct SUVs in Europe, both featuring Chevrolet’s iconic design," says Susan Docherty, President and Managing Director of Chevrolet and Cadillac Europe. "Trax combines the agility of a small car and the versatility of an SUV, making it perfect for today’s urban explorer. The larger and more powerful Captiva has a more upscale presence. 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," Docherty added.
