The ASEAN-market Chevrolet Captiva has been given an update for 2014 – the refreshed SUV, which made its debut at the ongoing Bangkok Motor Show, features the updated styling cues and new tech bits as seen in the second facelift which premiered in Geneva last year.

Externally, the 2014 Captiva wears a redesigned front bumper with new fog-light covers as well as new rear lamp cluster and a reworked rear bumper with integrated and stylised chrome exhaust tips. Variant specific additions are integrated stainless steel side steps for the 2.0 diesel LTZ and new 18-inch alloy wheels for the LT as standard.

Inside, the Captiva gets a new upholstery pattern and now comes with full keyless entry and push-button ignition, courtesy of what the company calls a Passive Entry Passive Start (PEPS) system. Other fresh bits include a dual-zone climate control system and illumination for the steering wheel-mounted controls.

Choice of powertrains for Captiva remain as before – an E85-capable 2.4 litre petrol offfering 168 hp at 5,600 rpm and 229 Nm at 4,600 rpm and a 2.0 litre turbodiesel with 163 hp at 3,800 rpm and 360 Nm at 1,750 to 2,750 rpm for numbers.
