Just as we had reported on the communication rollout of the refreshed 2022 Chevrolet Captiva in Mexico, General Motors officially launched the latest version of the compact crossover in the North American country. The automaker confirmed our previous coverage by revealing all the details of the 2022 Captiva for the Mexican market, where it will go on sale in early April.
As such, Mexico officially becomes the first country to receive the refreshed 2022 Chevrolet Captiva, without having previously marketed the initial edition of the second-generation crossover. In fact, as GM Authority exclusively reported at the beginning of last year, moving forward, the Latin country will be the main market for the new Captiva worldwide.
“Chevrolet revolutionizes the SUV segment again with the 2022 Captiva, a vehicle created to provide comfort to families,” said Chevrolet Marketing Manager at GM Mexico, Adriana Schutte, in a press release. “We are certain that this new entry in our portfolio will position itself among the most popular in the segment by offering excellent value for its space, design, efficiency and price,” she added.
As anticipated, the 2022 Chevrolet Captiva reaches the Mexican market with a range made up of two trim levels and three distinct variants, including the five-seat entry-level LT, the more-equipped seven-seat LT and the range-topping Premier. All stand out for offering a solid combination of modern design, interior space, performance and affordable price.
Its main competitive advantage is being the lowest-priced seven-passenger crossover on the market, with a rational approach that adapts very well to the needs of emerging countries such as Mexico. In addition, it includes plenty of safety equipment as standard, along with 10.4-inch infotainment touchscreen, a 3.5-inch digital instrument panel display, a panoramic sunroof and two cabin colors.
From a powertrain standpoint, the 2022 Chevrolet Captiva is offered in Mexico with a configuration that differs somewhat from what’s offered in other markets. It’s composed of the turbocharged 1.5L engine with 144 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, coupled to a continuously variable automatic transmission with a manual model that simulates eight fixed gears. In Mexico, the Captiva does not include a manual transmission.
The 2022 Chevrolet Captiva will be available starting next month in the entire Bow Tie brand dealership network in Mexico, where it will be positioned between the new Chevrolet Tracker and the Equinox. Interested customers can choose from four paint colors: Red, White, Black and Silver. The suggested prices of the 2022 Captiva in the Mexican market are as follows:
- Captiva LT 5 seats: 424,900 MXN ($20,470 USD at the current exchange rate)
- Captiva LT 7 seats: 444,900 MXN ($21,440 USD)
- Captiva Premier: 463,900 MXN ($22,350 USD)
