Great design should also deliver practical benefits
Flexible seating options mean that the Captiva is versatile. With the third row of seats folded down, there's up to 769 L of trunk space. Fold the second and third rows down and it's a huge 1,577 L – one of the largest in the SUV class.
Watch the video to see how you can:

Get tall and bulky items in, thanks to the large opening
Slide items in to make loading up easy
Look out for the stylish tailgate window to get smaller items in or out easily.
Advanced safety performance – now with NCAP 5 Stars
The Captiva boasts six airbags – dual front and side airbags for the driver and front passenger and curtain airbags for the outer rear passengers. Three-point seat belts with belt pre-tensioners not belt tensioners and belt force limiters look after those in the front seats, with a passenger warning to ensure everyone is buckled up, while ISOFIX anchor points are fitted to the outer seats of the second row, to facilitate the quick and secure fitting of child seats.
Keeping you reassured on the road is also a priority. Good to know, then, that a Traction Control System is keeping you planted, that Electronic Stability Control is eliminating over and under-steer, and that a Brake Assist System is ready and waiting to reduce braking distances in the event of an emergency. All these safety features come as standard.
Another smart safety first for the Captiva is Hill Start Assist which helps to prevent "roll-back" on hill starts.
Descent control system
Driving down-hill is easier, too, thanks to our Descent Control System. It's a technology that automatically slows the vehicle on steep gradients, which means you don't have to keep such a heavy foot on the brake pedal.
On the inside, you'll find features and a standard of quality that you'd normally expect to see on a much more expensive car. Take a look at the high quality seat fabrics and stitching and the generous storage – always where you want it.
Chevrolet Captiva includes other great features:
4-way adjustable seats
Aux-in iPod connection and steering wheel audio control
The Captiva – thanks to the quality materials and fit and finish – has a truly up-market feel and is equipped to a very high standard to maximise its versatility.
The Captiva has three rows of modular seating that are as capable of transporting large loads as they are at accommodating up to seven people. Our LTZ model offers additional ambience to its interior with door sill ambient lighting as well as
ambient footwell lighting.
Under that sculpted hood, you’ll find one of three powerful engines – engines that boast the latest manual or automatic six-speed transmissions for a powerful, yet smooth ride.
Transmission and drive options
Choose a manual or automatic with an override. Choose a front or on-demand four-wheel drive configuration. Whichever route you go, know that the standard Captiva chassis has been honed for enhanced vehicle dynamics, improved cornering, and impressive roll characteristics, for an enjoyable drive every trip.
The Captiva engines feature a number of technological improvements. Amongst them, Variable Valve Timing on our dual overhead cam 2.4 litre ECOTEC petrol model, which helps to deliver a maximum of 190Kw and 288Nm in just 10.1 seconds.
Our diesel offerings won't disappoint either. Our new turbo-charged 2.2 L outputs a 135Kw's and 400Nm torque. Not only are our diesel units powerful, but they also have CO2 emissions that fall below taxation thresholds.
