Chevrolet Captiva

Apparently the Chevrolet Captiva will be getting an update for 2013. The new model will be presented for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show.

The specialists have made different modification to improve their new achievement and if you continue reading you will find out exactly what they did. Let us start with the rear and front of the vehicle. Here we have to mention new LED tail lamps, angular chrome exhaust tips and a remodeled bumper. At the front we can see a lower bumper, but also a new grille and newly developed fog lamps. To transfer the output to the road, the engineers have equipped the model with 18-inch alloy wheels. As standard the new Chevy Captiva will feature keyless entry and start on upper trims. For the interior, the model got fresh seat colors, restyled trims in the instrument panel and also new fabrics.

The 2013 Chevrolet Captiva edition will also come with a dual-zone climate system, an ambient lighting package and heated rear seats that provide extra comfort on selected specifications. The new model is perfect as a family SUV. The carmaker will also reveal the Trax this spring. This is scheduled to arrive at dealerships in Europe soon. It comes with a choice of three fuel-efficient engines and sporty ride characteristics. The lineup will include a 1.4-liter turbocharged gasoline unit capable of generating 140 horsepower, a 1.6-liter gasoline engine, but also a 1.7-liter diesel engine capable of producing 130 horsepower. To transfer the output to the wheels, the engineers have offered all manual transmission variants. The ones interested in owning one car should know that the Trax is offered in front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive configurations.

Chevrolet manages to sell almost 5 million vehicles each year in more than 140 countries. It is the 4th biggest global car brand in terms of sales and also one of the fastest growing brands in the world.
