Bangkok, Thailand – The first 2014 Chevrolet Captiva SUV has driven off the production line at GM’s Rayong Assembly Plant in Thailand as production of the new model began.
Chevrolet Thailand’s award-winning flagship in is one of the most successful SUV’s in the market, having sold more than 35,000 units since its introduction in Thailand.
Captiva’s new advanced technologies and features, updated styling and superior driving dynamics and performance are expected to help Chevrolet win a bigger share of the SUV-C segment.
The new Captiva comes with Passive Entry Passive Start (PEPS), a feature that allows the driver to unlock the doors and start the engine by being in-range of the Captiva’s sensors, without having to take the key in his hands.
Captiva’s new dual zone climate control allows the driver and front passenger to operate separate temperature settings, which provides improved comfort for the occupants.
Also, the steering wheel-mounted cruise-control and audio controls are now illuminated, giving the driver a clearer view of the controls in low-light conditions. The finishing touch is the new upholstery pattern that gives the interior a fresh look.
On the exterior, Captiva has a redesigned front bumper with more elegant fog-light covers. The rear bumper is redesigned with integrated, stylized chrome exhaust tips and new rear light clusters. The new model also comes with integrated stainless steel side steps that allow passengers to get in and out with ease (only on 2.0 diesel LTZ variant). The ‘LT’ variant also gets new 18-inch alloy wheels as standard. The exterior changes and additions give a sense of added luxury to the new 2014 Captiva.
Captiva is in production now and arrives at dealerships in June, and pricing ranges between 1.298 to 1.719million THB.
