[ UPDATE: Hicom-Chevrolet has launched the Chevrolet Captiva in Malaysia. ]
We first saw the Chevrolet Captiva in near production concept form in 2004 as the Chevrolet S3X Concept. Soon it went into production in 2006 as the Chevrolet Captiva and the Daewoo Winstorm, powered by a 2.4 litre petrol (142hp@5200rpm, 220Nm@4000rpm) or a 3.2 litre V6 (225hp@6000rpm, 302Nm@3500rpm), or a GM-VM Motori 2.0 litre turbodiesel (150hp@4000rpm, 310Nm@2000rpm).
The long wheelbase of 2700mm allows the Chevrolet Captiva to fit up to 3 rows of seats for a maximum capacity of 7 seats, although the SUV is also available as a 5 seater.
After looking at the Captiva only through the internet and magazines, suddenly we see it in Putrajaya at the JPJ building thanks to reader akmal… first the new Chevrolet Aveo notchback and now this – is Hicomobil on the roll again?
