The upcoming 2020 Chevrolet Captiva will be available once again. The compact SUV will arrive with a more attractive design and more technology features. Updates are numerous and there will be up to three engine choices.
Captiva rides on the same platform as the Opel Antara model. And while Antara offers five seats, Captiva comes with the five and seven-seat configurations. Interestingly, Captiva won’t arrive with the same dimensions in the United States and Asia. For example, a model for Thailand markets will be smaller than the American version.
2020 Chevrolet Captiva Exterior Styling
The all-new 2020 Chevrolet Captiva will look no way near the model that is sold in Australia. Also, Asian markets will get a slightly different design. But the model for the United States will look more attractive than the rest of the lineup. Front end now offers all-new split headlights and LED daytime running lights. Also, headlight units are moved further below. Panoramic sunroof will be optional and it will surely remain a popular choice among the customers.
Generally, styling is very attractive and it sure looks better than the price might suggest. 17-inch wheels will be standard while higher trims will offer 19-inch alloy wheels. Rear end sports chromed exhaust tips and the spoiler will look more modern. Also, Captiva will offer its popular exterior paints. That includes Switch Blade Silver, Dark Burgundy, Carbon Flash, Smokey Eye Gray, and Snowflake White Pearl.
In the Asian markets, the Captiva SUV is one of the most comfortable and spacious models. Interior is flexible and very practical. The U.S. version will be even better. However, competition in the United States is tougher. New 2020 Chevrolet Captiva will get more advanced safety features. Also, this SUV now offers more upscale materials.
No doubt that the Captiva will be more comfortable and durable than its predecessor. Black and brown leather upholstery is optional. The cabin looks sporty and stylish at the same time. There will be five and seven-seat models in the offer. Interior legroom is ample, even in the third row.
