The company hasn’t revealed many details about the exterior design of their new Chevy Captiva, but the prototype was noticed on the roads. Even though the prototype was heavily masked we managed to see what has been changed on the newcomer. This suggests that the company prepares a real surprise in terms of exterior design but it also suggests that the exterior will suffer many changes. The upcoming model will have some features the Opel Mokka has. It will feature dual exhaust pipes just like the previous model had. According to spy photos, the new model will have a more striking grille. The headlights will probably be LED daytime running lights. The bumper of the new crossover SUV will have a splitter that will play a significant role in reducing noise during high speed.
When it comes to the interior design of the 2016 Chevy Captiva crossover SUV, the features that will arrive in its cabin remain a secret. What we know is that the designers will use high-quality materials in upholstering the seats, the dashboard and the door trims. We’ve mentioned that the newcomer will have a new platform which immediately suggests that the passengers in the new model will be offered additional space for additional comfort. We assume that the cabin will be equipped with features like high-quality audio system, touchscreen, and navigation system.
