2014 Chevrolet Captiva Review
2014 Chevrolet Captiva comes in four trims which are 1LS, 2LS, LT and LTZ. They all come with 2.4L SIDI I-4 VVT engine with 182 hp, 6-speed automatic transmission with ECO mode and are all FWD models.
On the outside, new Captiva looks very similar to the ones before. It has thinner grille and bigger headlights compared to the previous models. Pretty much everything else remains the same with aerodynamic line that steadily falls back and cuts the rear end at around 70 degrees angle.
Interior of this 2014 Chevrolet Captiva SUV is really something to behold, for the features that can be found in Captiva are usually strong points of a much more expensive vehicles. It has fine fiber seats that can be folded down (both front and rear) and with it comes more than a fair amount of storage space. Safety is as important as anything and Captiva has six built-in airbags. It also has the latest technological marvels inside, including: cruise control, air conditioning, driver information center, remote keyless entry, Bluetooth and wireless technology for select phones etc.
All of the above comes as a standard equipment, but there is so much more in optional features. You could install 8-way power driver seat, leather-appointed seating, heated front seats, remote vehicle starter system, rear-vision camera system, power sunroof and many more.
2014 Chevrolet Captiva is soft on the inside and mean and tough looking on the outside and beside that, it doesn’t spend much gas. It goes 20 mpg in a city and 28 mpg on a highway which is solid for a mid-sized SUV.
2014 Chevrolet Captiva price
Prices vary from trim to trim, which is obvious, but not as much as some of the competitor’s, plus it is not that expensive at all considering all that is, or can be included. For a stock 1LS, you’ll have to give $24,360 and for a stock equipped LTZ, the price is $29,495 which makes it very competitive on the market.
Considering everything seen above, one cannot do anything but strongly suggest, at least looking into SUV like 2015 Chevy Captiva.
