Chevrolet Captiva 2021: mid-size crossover at an affordable price level.
Car enthusiasts respect the Chevrolet Captiva model range for their modern body design, operational reliability and optimal consumption characteristics for their class.

The interest with which the new version of the 2020-2021 Chevrolet Captiva crossover was met is natural.

The new model, which has gone through a planned update, offers future owners:

• higher level of technical equipment and road safety;
• decent salon comfort;
• extended functionality of on-board electronics and an affordable price range.


The increased body dimensions had a positive effect on the spaciousness of the five-seat cabin, and in another version, the seven-seat volume.

Nevertheless, even in the new format, the 2021 Chevrolet Captiva looks compact and elegant. A characteristic feature of the bodywork is a combination of classic crossover and corporate identity.

In the photos and videos, the crossover that went through a planned restyling demonstrates full face:

• ribbed sidewalls and a slight slope of the hood;
• ventilated air intake, supplemented with decorative chrome plating and branding;
• the sporty style of the hexagonal radiator grille.

The crossover status of the car is confirmed by the design of the plastic body kit protected by a curly panel. The lighting equipment is represented by a set of front optics units with xenon fittings and fog lamps built into the side diffusers.

There are no significant changes in the lateral projection. In sight: a sloping roof equipped with silver rails, a plastic frame and pillars of three-piece side glazing, longitudinal aerodynamic reliefs and the correct geometry of the tall wheel arches.

In the general style, massive mirrors, hidden door handles and 18-inch wheels, full-fledged plastic protection of the lower body perimeter are decorated.

The new body has received a standard rear side layout. In stock:

• spoiler visor equipped with LED illumination;
• traditional for a crossover layout, a combination of a sloping window and a vertical trim of the trunk;
• wedge-shaped shape of the overall lampshades and a massive body kit with built-in exhaust pipes.


The interior of the seven-seater cabin volume is made in dark colors, slightly diluted with silver inserts.

The American origin of the novelty is visible in the dense arrangement of the analog-digital instrument panel and center console.

• The upper floor of the dashboard is occupied by a block of a multimedia monitor and deflectors of the cabin ventilation circuit. The lower part is designed as a technical platform with controls and settings for onboard options.

• The tunnel begins with a well in which the ports for connecting external digital peripherals are installed. In a relatively poor configuration: transmission and parking brake levers, a set of cup holders and a high armrest, which is convenient for long trips.
