The list of changes, of course, is not as impressive, but still it makes sense to look at the updated Chevrolet Captiva more closely.
The vehicle is based on GM Theta platform, and its establishment was engaged in the South Korean unit of US automaker.
In 2010, the crossover has undergone its first major restyling: has been completely redesigned chassis, engines replaced, upgraded interior and exterior.

The length of the wheelbase – 2707 mm.
It is worth to pay attention to the clearance of Captiva, which the manufacturer prefers to remain silent, without giving him even in official brochures.
