General Motors Middle East has released a new advertisement promoting the 2021 model year Chevy Captiva compact crossover.
The second-generation Chevy Captiva, which was first introduced at the Bogotá International Motor Show in Colombia in late 2018, is a rebadged Baojun 530 that is sold in roughly 40 emerging markets around the world, including the Middle East. The crossover is among the least expensive seven-seat vehicles on the market and is offered in the entry-level LS, mid-grade LT and well-equipped Premier trim levels in the Middle East region.
This advertisement promotes the Captiva’s various features, including its available seven-passenger seating layout, cargo space, standard eight-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay, seven-inch digital driver information display rear parking sensors, rear-vision camera, 17-inch alloy wheels, available cruise control and LED daytime running lights, among more. Chevy’s description for the ad is as follows: “The Chevrolet Captiva has 7 seats. Spaciousness, dynamic design and infotainment that make this SUV truly unlike any other.”
GM introduced a refreshed version of the Chevy Captiva in certain markets for the 2022 model year, which features revised exterior styling with a new front fascia and narrow LED headlamps, as well as a new available portrait-style 10.4-inch infotainment touchscreen. Power in the Captiva comes from a turbocharged 1.5L inline-four engine that generates 145 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, which is the only powertrain option in all the international markets where it is sold. The engine is paired with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) and front-wheel drive.
With the closure of the Rayong plant in Thailand back in 2020, the Captiva is manufactured exclusively in China by GM’s joint venture, SAIC-GM-Wuling.
