Chevrolet Captiva Sport US
Chevrolet will offer Captiva Sport in the United States. Variants of the compact crossover are sold in more than 50 markets across Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, the Middle East and South America.
"It says a lot about our ability to draw on international programs and proven, quality crossovers that we were able to identify and federalize a strong new entrant such as Captiva Sport for the U.S. market," commented Alan Batey, US vice president, Chevrolet Sales and Service.
"We turned to our global network for a solution to quickly meet the rising demand from local fleet customers and continue to meet strong retail demand for the Equinox.", he added.
Chevy Captiva Sport will be available for delivery in the end of 2011, as a 2012 model.
The standard equipment boasts air conditioning, power locks and windows, a six-speaker audio system and 17" aluminum wheels.
There are two engines available – 2.4 liter Ecotec with 185PS (136 kW) and 233Nm (172 lb-ft) and 3.0 liter V6 with 268PS (197 kW) and 301Nm (222 lb-ft). Both engines are mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission and AWD system is optional.
"The range of features offered by the Captiva Sport is as rich as any Chevrolet vehicle," said Batey.
"Our fleet customers will find it to be a versatile vehicle that gives them the cargo capacity they need, in a fuel efficient package that will help keep their ownership costs in check.", he finished.
