The much awaited facelifted Chevrolet Captiva has been launched quietly today. General Motors calls it the next generation Captiva but has not discontinued the old 2-litre diesel engine in the Captiva, which will be sold along side it. The pricing of the facelifted Captiva with the 2.2-litre diesel engine is a blunder at Rs. 24.59 lakhs (ex-showroom, New Delhi), which makes it the costliest SUV in the segment. The new Captiva is powered by a 2.2-litre diesel engine which is mated to a 6-speed automatic gearbox. Power goes to all the wheels via the AWD system.
