In July, we saw photos of what appeared to be a face lifted Chevrolet Captiva SUV undergoing pre-production testing. The Captiva is eight years old now, making it one of the older products in General Motors product portfolio, however the planned cosmetic update to the car should help it remain relevant in the highly competitive midsize SUV segment. Today a second round of spy photos comes to us, giving us a better look at the Antara’s updated front end.
The photos show a Captiva prototype with camouflage covering the front fascia and hood. The grille appears to have adopted a similar look to the Chevrolet Sonic, sold as the Aveo in certain markets, while vents have been integrated into the hood. This could be a styling decision, however it could also be the sign of a new or updated powerplant hiding under the hood. Autoevolution also points out there are new vents on the front quarter panels and LED turn signals.
The Captiva has been on sale in markets such as Asia, Australia, New Zealand and the Middle East since 2006. GM has implemented different updates and restyled the car a handful of times since its debut to keep it competitive and this new update should help the SUV to live on for at least another couple of years.
