New 2012 Chevrolet Captiva Launched In Malaysia, Expected in India Soon

Chevrolet, in Malaysian market has launched the face-lifted Captiva with a 2.0 litre VCDi Turbocharged diesel engine producing a peak power output of 163 bhp @ 3800 rpm and 360Nm @ 2750 rpm. A 6-speed DSC Auto transmission is mated to the engine combined with the ECO mode which takes care of the gear shifts to extract best possible mileage.


As in India the car is launched in two trim levels LT and LTZ. And the major difference between LT and LTZ models is the tyre size. The LT rides on 18 inchers while the LTZ gets 19 inchers.

The features list goes like:

  • Leather Upholstery
  • 4-spoke Steering Wheel
  • Electronic Parking Brake
  • 3D Sound Staging System
  • Perforated Leather Upholstery (LTZ)
  • Electro-chromic Rear-View Mirror(LTZ)
  • Dual Airbags up front
  • Curtain Airbags
  • ABS and EBD
  • Traction Control and ESP
  • Self Leveling Suspension
  • Hill Start Assist, and
  • Hill Descent Control programs

All the above mentioned features comes as standard fitment.


Chevrolet has probably delayed Captiva’s launch in India because the car is being expected since March this year. Chevy also displayed the new Captiva at the Delhi Auto Expo in Delhi this year.

There is a high probability that a slightly de-tuned diesel engine can make it to India with a bit more mileage figures and a little lesser number of features.

We have also reported that the Chevy has started production of Trailblazer in Thailand and it is also India bound!
