Chevrolet has revealed the new Captiva SUV, which features a new sporty design and an all-new engine line-up.

The Captiva joins the Aveo supermini, Cruze hatchback and Orlando MPV in making its premiere at the Paris Motor Show later this month.

Customers will have the choice of three new engines: 2.2-litre diesel (available in 163 and 184bhp guise); and a 171bhp 2.4-litre petrol unit. Chevrolet says that a ‘host of technologies’ have been used by its engineers in order to deliver an ‘optimal balance of performance and fuel economy’.

Externally, the new Captiva flaunts a re-shaped and sharply sculptured bonnet, a larger front grille, prism-style headlamps and LED turn signals on the outside rear view mirrors. The colour palette has also been extended and up to 19-inch wheels can be specified.

With seven-seat versatility and ice-blue backlighting, the Captiva’s cabin balances practicality with style. The interior options list has too been upgraded, and now features a range of new finishes and textures.

Pricing for the new Chevrolet Captiva has yet to be revealed, but it will be released in Europe in spring 2011. Expect further details at the Paris Motor Show.
