New Car: 2012 Chevrolet Captiva Sport (U.S)

Chevrolet will launch a new compact SUV, called Captiva Sport in memory of the Saturn Vue, which got murdered alongside the Saturn brand recently.

Basically, a slightly revised Vauxhall/Opel Antara, the Mexican-made Captiva Sport will primarily target fleet consumers who need "a contemporary five-seat crossover with a comprehensive range of features and amenities."

Three trim-levels will be offered; LS, LT, and LTZ. Per se, the Captiva Sport will be equipped with 17” aluminium wheels, air-conditioning, electric windows and door mirrors, manual adjustable front seats, 6 speakers sound system, XM satellite radio, x6 airbags, traction control, stabiliTrak electronic stability control, and cruise control.

Uplevel LT and LTZ models include the V6 engine (with dual exhaust), along with OnStar and Bluetooth phone connectivity, rear-view camera and leather trim package - including leather-trimmed and heated front seats - are standard on LTZ and available on other trims. The LTZ trim also includes a 10 speaker sound system and a sunroof.

Power will come from two petrol units; a base 182bhp (185PS/136kW) 2.4 litre Ecotec and a powerful 264bhp (268PS/197kW) 3.0 litre V6. The former develops 233Nm (172lb-ft) of torque and the V6 engine pumps out 301Nm (222lb-ft) of torque, while being hooked up to a 6 speed automatic. All-wheel-drive will be optional.

Sales start late autumn/early winter 2011.
