The 2020 Chevrolet Captiva was developed by GM’s Chinese joint venture, SAIC-GM-Wuling, and is marketed in China as the Baojun 530. It’s available in two-row five-seat as well as three-row seven-seat configurations and is designed to be a spacious and practical mode of transport for busy, on-the-go families.
In the Middle East, the Captiva will be powered by the same turbocharged 1.5-liter engine as the Baojun 530, which is good for 149 horsepower and 188 pound-feet of torque. The Baojun 530 model is offered with both a CVT automatic and a six-speed manual transmission, though the Captiva for the Middle East likely be CVT only – similar to the Thai model we covered previously.
GM Middle East also says the 2020 Chevrolet Captiva will come equipped with a host of safety features and technologies “to make the driver’s daily commute easier and more enjoyable,” though it did not say what this safety tech will be available on the vehicle, nor which of these may come standard. An eight-inch display screen will come standard on all trims in the Middle East, as well.
The 2020 Chevrolet Captiva will be available at Middle East Chevrolet dealerships in early 2020. GM says it will be offered in three trims and five color options in the region. Pricing has not yet been announced.
