Chevrolet reveals Captiva Ikon Edition

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

After having been on sale for just about two years, the Captiva SUV has become the figurehead of the model range of Chevrolet, something bordering that of an icon. Especially so with the introduction of the brand new edition of Captiva Ikon that provides unparalleled value for cash.

Currently available on sale, the Ikon is patterned on the well-equipped LS version implying that it will also get air conditioning, power windows, remote locking, power mirrors, a glass flip tailgate and high quality CD/stereo combo with control mounted on the steering wheel.

Ikon includes smart styling touches above the standard kit valued at £3,000, with 20-inch alloys, privacy glass, exhaust tailpipe in chrome and side steps.

Ikon is a front-wheel drive vehicle with a 2.4-liter gasoline or 2.0-liter diesel powerplant options with all the characteristics of the big SUV minus the related costs making it ideal for those who need a bigger vehicle without paying the premium or those who want to reduce prices while availing of style.

Add to this the fact that Ikon is for sale at less than the equivalent LS version in the Captiva lineup with the 2.4-liter almost £1,000 cheaper than the gasoline LS at only £15,995 on-the-road, while the 2.0 diesel is only £16,995 offering a savings of £1,400 in contrast to the equivalent VCDi LS.

AN IKON THAT TRULY STANDS OUT!

Since going on sale in 2007, the Captiva SUV has become very much the figurehead of Chevrolet’s model range. In fact, you could say it has become something of an icon…

If not, then you could definitely say it has become an Ikon, for Chevrolet has just introduced an all-new special edition Captiva that offers unbeatable value for money.

On sale now, the Captiva Ikon is based on the generously equipped LS model, meaning it gets such goodies as air conditioning, electric windows, remote locking, electrically-adjustable mirrors, a glass flip tailgate and quality CD/stereo with steering wheel mounted controls.

But on top of the standard kit, the Ikon also benefits from smart styling touches worth over £3,000, including 20-inch alloy wheels, side steps, privacy glass and a chrome exhaust tailpipe.

Powered by a choice of 2.4-litre petrol or 2.0-litre diesel engines, the front-wheel drive Ikon offers all of the attributes of a large SUV with none of the associated expense, making it ideal for those who have outgrown their family hatchbacks but don’t want to pay premium prices, or for those used to a larger SUV but who are looking to cut their costs without cutting back on their style.

What’s more, the Ikon is on offer at less than the equivalent LS models in the Captiva range – the 2.4 model is almost £1,000 cheaper than the petrol LS at only £15,995 on-the-road, while the 2.0-litre diesel is only £16,995 – a saving of over £1,400 against the equivalent VCDi LS.

Not even Chevrolet, with its reputation for providing great value for money, can offer such an incredible deal for long, meaning that to catch your dream Ikon you need to hurry – it won’t be around for ever!
