The 2013 Chevrolet Captiva Facelift was officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, introducing several enhancements to its design that further accentuate the vehicle's assertive stance. Changes include a new LED tail lamp, an angular chrome exhaust tips and a remodeled bumper, which contributes to the sharper, more defined appearance of the new Captiva.

The front end received a lower bumper, a new grill mesh but also restyled fog lamps. Moreover, new 18-inch alloy wheels enhance the SUV’s road presence. The interior also boasts several novelties such as fresh seat colors, new fabrics (upper specifications: leather seats), and restyled trims in the instrument panel.

According to the official press release, a dual zone climate system and heated rear seats offer even more comfort on select specifications. Furthermore, the footwell area is now illuminated with Chevrolet's stylish ice-blue ambient lighting. For the 2013MY, the Captiva will be offered as standard with keyless entry and keyless start on upper trims.

The 2013 Captiva offers enough space for up to seven occupants or for a maximum of 1,577 liters of luggage. Under the hood, customers get a choice of four potent diesel and gasoline engines, with displacements ranging from 2.2-liter to 3.0-liter.

Awarded by EuroNCAP with a five star safety rating, the 2013 Captiva Facelift comes equipped with Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Traction Control (TC), Braking Assist System (BAS) and an electric park brake. Hill Start Assist (HAS) eliminates roll-back on hills. Captiva is capable of towing trailers and caravans weighing up to two tons.
