Chevy Captiva Sport

Later this year, Chevrolet is going to introduce the Captiva Sport, a new entry to the U.S. market, thus aiming to satisfy the growing demand for compact crossovers by fleet customers. It will be available for delivery in the fourth quarter of 2011, as a 2012 model. Alan Batey, U.S. vice president, Chevrolet Sales and Service announced that the vehicle said a lot about their ability to draw on international programs with high-quality crossovers that were able to identify and consolidate a strong new entrant embodied by the Captiva Sport. Batey added that the range of features offered by the Captiva was as rich as any Chevrolet vehicle.
The Captiva Sport integrates either an Ecotec 2.4-liter direct-injected four-cylinder or 3.0L direct-injected V-6 engine, each of them being mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, which is also fuel-saving. Besides the handling features, the Captiva Sport helps protect occupants with its high-strength steel structure and a long list of standard occupant-protection safety features. Incorporating four trim packages, the new car model will be available in LS and LT models. 17-inch alloys are standard for all models, together with six-speaker sound system, XM Satellite Radio, air conditioning, remote keyless entry, four-wheel disc brakes with antilock, traction control, StabiliTrak electronic stability control and power locks and windows. Furthermore, the uplevel LTZ and LT models integrate the V6 engine, Bluetooth phone connectivity and OnStar, while leather trim package and a rear-view camera are offered as standard on LTZ and available on other trims. Dual-stage front-seat air bags, front-seat side thorax air bags and rollover capable head curtain air bags covering front and rear rows are standard on all models.
