GM stops selling US version of Chevrolet Captiva Sport

Article by Christian A., on November 6, 2014

General Motors is not offering the for-United States-only version of the Chevrolet Captiva Sport anymore. The carmaker stopped production of fleet-only small crossover in August, according to GM spokesman Jim Cain. GM, however, is still producing the Chevrolet Captiva Sport for the Mexican market and for export at its Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico.

GM launched the Captiva Sport – which is a rebadged Saturn Vue – in the US in the fall of 2011 for rental companies and other fleet customers to free up capacity for the Chevy Equinox and GMC Terrain that had been in short supply at the time.

GM sold a peak of 47,600 Captiva Sport units in 2013, and 35,275 of small crossover in the first 10 months of 2014. GM only sold 32 Captiva Sport in October dealers phased out inventory of the model.

While it was intended for fleet customers only, the small crossover also became a hit among retail customers on used lots who see the model a less expensive alternative to the Equinox.

With the phasing out of the Captiva Sport, its demand should be absorbed by the Trax small crossover that will be launched early next year.
