The new UK-spec Chevrolet Captiva LTZ is the best-equipped version of the SUV and it’s priced from £27,305 for the manual (£28,630 for the auto). They say that it is the best alternative for those who want a BMW X5 or a Range Rover but can’t afford them! They do have a point actually, because the Captiva looks great and now got all the kit you’ll ever need.
So if you just want a 4×4 to do the school run, why pay 20 grand more for something you don’t need. That said, the Captiva comes with a Chevy badge, which obviously is not in the same league as BMW or Range Rover but anyhow, it’s a good car!
The new LTZ trim level comes standard with full leather, climate control, cruise control, electrically-adjustable driver’s seat, automatic lights and wipers, bold 18-inch alloys, unique rear light clusters, privacy glass, ESC and electrically-folding door mirrors, plus new reverse-parking camera and a touch-screen satellite navigation unit with 7-inch display. The sat nav incorporates Points of Interest and postcode search, plus USB input compatibility for music and video clips.
As for the engine, you get a 150PS 2.0-litre VCDi with average fuel consumption of 38.2mpg for the manual, and 32.8mpg for the auto, while the Co2 level is 197g/km and 225g/km respectively.
