Chevrolet Trax crossover SUV to be highlighted too

Chevrolet is set to unveil a face-lifted version of its Captiva compact SUV at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show next month. The new Captiva introduces several changes to the rear and front of the vehicle, including new LED tail lamps, angular chrome exhaust tips, and a remodeled bumper. Up front, it sports a lower bumper, a new grille mesh as well as restyled foglamps. New 18-inch alloy wheels were also added to further enhance the Captiva's road presence.

Alongside the external improvements, the Captiva will also feature keyless entry and start as standard on upper trims while the interior boasts of fresh seat colors, new fabrics, and restyled trims in the instrument panel. A dual-zone climate control system, and an ambient lighting package provide even more comfort on select specifications.


Chevrolet will also be showcasing the Trax as its contender for the fast-growing small SUV segment. It will be offered in three engine line-up comprised of a 140hp 1.4-liter turbocharged gasoline engine, a 1.6-liter gasoline engine, and a 130hp 1.7-liter diesel engine and is available in either a front or all-wheel drive configuration.

"Trax combines the agility of a small car and the versatility of an SUV, making it perfect for today’s urban explorer. The larger and more powerful Captiva has a more upscale presence." says Susan Docherty, President and Managing Director of Chevrolet and Cadillac Europe.
