2019 Chevrolet Captiva comes as a great new change in the line of large SUV models, but for the manufacturer, it is only one of the models that will be changed in years to come. The reason for this great change is to follow other cars under this brand, but surely in order to follow high market demands, too.
- great elegant interior design,
- improved infotainment system.
- old-fashioned design,
- weak engines for this size truck.
We were able to see spy photos from test driving, which allows us to predict changes in 2019 Chevrolet Captiva, but before that, we must say that there are no many changes in this new model from the last one. It should be the same cubic large truck, with massive but soft-edged front end and recognizable mesh grille and logo in the middle of it. The rear end is also traditional, with almost flat truck door and redesigned rear lights. Thanks to the flat roof the car has large truck space. According to some speculations, new Captive could be slightly larger than before.
There are no clearly described changes inside of 2019 Chevrolet Captiva from the last model. There are few things that we could predict like improved infotainment system and new controlling systems, like rearview camera or weather control. However, the cabin should be redesigned in order to be more attractive and comfortable, but the manufacturer has not shared photos of that yet. As we know that there should be a sports model, too, we are sure that the seats and cabin design will be adjusted to that in sports trim.
There are many speculations about the engine in 2019 Chevrolet Captiva. Most of them are about possibly existing of a diesel engine which could be 2.2-liter diesel engine with 163 horsepower. However, there should be two petrol engines that are more likely to be found in a large car like Captiva. First one is a 2.4-liter four-in-line engine with 167 horsepower and the second one is much stronger 3-0-liter V6 with 258 horsepower. Both petrol engines should be paired with a six-speed automatic transmission with the all-wheel driving system as optional together with the front-wheel driving system.

2019 Chevrolet Captiva arrives in the second half of the year, so be patient with all questions by then. Base price should not be much higher than for current model and that is $24,000. Among the competitors are the best elegant SUVs on the market, like Lincoln Navigator, Cadillac Escalade, Infiniti QX80 and Mercedes-Benz GLS even though the manufacturer aimed to be similar with Opel Mokka.
