General Motors South Africa has refreshed the Captiva SUV for a second time since it was launched here. In addition to some styling changes, the vehicle now also has some extra interior kit. The Captiva is Chevrolet’s best-selling mid-sized SUV and they would like to keep the sales ticking away.

Part of the change includes a new-look front bumper, fog lamp surrounds and front grille. While the last updatemade sure the car was more aggressive in its look, this time a crispier design has been put in place. What would a facelift be without work being done to the rear? For the Captiva we see a new bumper and sportier tailpipes, along with brighter LED taillights.
Some of the bits that will make the Captiva stand tall beside its rivals are the 18-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry with an accompanying start button, optional dual-zone climate control, a sunroof, leather seats and a tyre pressure warning indicator among others, all model-dependent.
