The Chevrolet Captiva was the first car the firm launched officially in the UK which wasn’t based on a Daewoo. Instead, it found its origins in the Vauxhall Antara. In fact, the pair were built on the same production line.
It was an SUV whose main rivals include the Hyundai Santa Fe, Kia Sorento and Mitsubishi Outlander. It was offered with a choice of two-wheel drive for lower running costs or all-wheel drive for mild off-roading ability.
Launched in 2007, there was a facelift in early 2011 which ushered in a set of new diesel engines along with new gearboxes and new styling both inside and out.
