CHEVROLET CAPTIVA With Fuel Efficient Turbo-DIESEL From RM158,888.00
Chevrolet Malaysia has launched 2 new and more powerful turbo-diesel variants of the Chevrolet Captiva SUV which come with a turbocharged 2.0L Diesel VCDI engine that produces a powerful 360Nm from as low as 2,750rpm and 122kW/163PS at 3,800rpm will be available in both LT and LTZ variants. This is then transferred to the driving wheels via a 6-speed automatic transmission which features Driver Shift Control (DSC) and ECO mode similar to the one found in the petrol variant Captiva LT.
Both the petrol and turbo-diesel LT variants will be equipped with similar 18 inch alloy wheels, while the LTZ is equipped with the largest in class 19 inch alloy wheels which further improves safety and driving dynamics in addition of enhancing the sophisticated look of the Captiva.
Familiar features in the user-friendly leather upholstered interior such as the electrically-operated parking brake; 3 dimensional sound staging system and multi-function 4-spoke steering wheel from the petrol powered LT variant are retained on both the new additions. The LTZ further receives an electrochromic rear-view mirror which will reduces glare from oncoming traffic, and will also be adorned with perforated leather for better ventilation on much longer journeys, a standard practice for the new diesel engine.
Safety features from the original petrol LT such as the active and passive safety systems with dual front airbags supplemented by curtain airbags, disc brakes on all four wheels (ventilated at the front) with anti-lock braking system (ABS), electronic brake-force distribution (EBD), traction control, Electronic Stability Program (ESP) including anti-rollover protection (ARP) and self-levelling suspension system (Self-Levelizer) are also retained on both turbo-diesel models. Premium features such as the ‘Hill Start Assist’ that prevents the vehicle from rolling backwards when the brakes are released on a slope and ‘Hill Descent Control’ which helps the Captiva maintain a constant speed when descending steep slopes to maximize traction and control are standard on all LT and LTZ variants.
