ABOUT:The Chevrolet Captiva is a compact sport utility vehicle (SUV) developed by GM Daewoo (now GM Korea), the South Korean subsidiary of General Motors (GM), and sold under the Chevrolet brand. The Captiva utilises the GM Theta platform and derives from the Chevrolet S3X concept car revealed in 2004. The Theta platform also underpins the Opel Antara, the Captiva's mechanical derivative also built by Daewoo. Sold internationally as the "Chevrolet Captiva", South Korean-market cars were badged Daewoo Winstorm up until 2011, when the international name was adopted. Australasian-specification models are badged Holden Captiva.
For the Captiva, the production version of the S3X, both five- or seven-seat configurations are available. Standard safety features include: anti-lock brakes, electronic stability control (ESC), front seatbelt pre-tensioners and force limiters, and driver and front passenger airbags. Side curtain airbags are standard on higher luxury level variants in some markets. In crash safety tests conducted by Euro NCAP, the Captiva was given a four out of five star crash rating. The results from the test were helped by the use of high-strength steel used in the body shell which was designed to spread crash forces over distinct load channels, therefore ensuring the safety of the occupants within the safety cell. The vehicle's optional active all-wheel drive system is fully incorporated with the ESC and anti-lock braking systems, consequently increasing car handling and control. When the driving conditions determine the need for improved traction, the vehicle’s all-wheel drive system instigates. In ordinary driving situations, only the vehicle's front wheels are employed.
In March 2010, GM announced a recall of 45,957 Captiva and Daewoo Winstorm models—those produced between 1 April 2006 and 31 December 2007. The recall arose due to an unspecified defect with the steering system.
A revised Captiva range was released in the second quarter of 2011. The facelifted Captiva features a new front fascia reminiscent to that of the Chevrolet Aveo (T300). Other noticeable cosmetic differences comprise LED turn signals on the door-mounted mirrors, redesigned wheels and revised side air vents. A retuned suspension, four new engines and two new transmissions will also feature.
The Captiva is powered by the Australian (Holden)-built 3.2 litre Alloytec V6 engine mated to a five-speed automatic transmission, featuring Active Select. This engine is also shared by the Captiva's Opel Antara derivative which utilises a different design, but shares the same underpinnings and powertrain components. A four-cylinder VCDi common rail turbodiesel engine, co-developed with VM Motori was introduced into the range.
South Korean cars were branded "Daewoo Winstorm" from 2006. From 2008 onwards the Opel Antara became available in the Winstorm range, as the "Daewoo Winstorm MaXX". As part of GM's strategy to phase out the "Daewoo" brand worldwide, since early 2011 the Winstorm has been marketed under the global "Chevrolet Captiva" name in South Korea. This re branding came after the March 2011 renaming of "GM Daewoo" to "GM Korea".
The Chevrolet Captiva was launched in Vietnam during 2006. The Captiva in Vietnam is manufactured in complete knock-down (CKD) form by Vidamco (GM Vietnam), with 20 percent local parts content. From 2006 to July 2009, 8,500 Captivas have been sold in Vietnam.
In Thailand, Captivas have been produced at the GM facility in Rayon since 2006. Chevrolet Thailand offered the Captiva in LS and LT variants, with engines comprising either the 2.4-liter gasoline or 2.0-liter diesel units. Captiva also featured the availability of self-leveling rear suspension , electronic stability control, automatic headlamps and rain sensing wipers. Late in 2010, Chevrolet expanded the diesel line-up to include a mid-range LSX and flagship LTZ model. At the same time, Captiva's fitted with the 2.4-liter gasoline engine benefited from E20 ethanol support and increased power to 170 PS (125 kW). On 23 June 2011, Chevrolet Thailand unveiled the updated the Captiva using the new 2.4-liter petrol engine with support of E85 ethanol fuel. New features include an electric parking brake, climate control commands on the steering wheel; and later, the updated 2.0-liter diesel engine rated at 120 kW (163 PS).
