Chevrolet Captiva is a Compact Crossover SUV manufactured by American automaker General Motors under the Chevrolet brand. The car has a history of two generations and is a model that has not gained the popularity it deserves among the iconic SUV models of the Chevrolet brand. The car, which was first produced in 2006 and is still being produced, succeeded in making a splash especially when it was released in the European continent. Although it continues to be produced with different names in different automotive markets, the impressive appearance of the front part is still in memory. The Captiva is a molded but not bulky SUV in terms of exterior design. The sharp line running across both sides of the car is a reference to the dynamic characteristics of the car, and the details on the rest of the body are arranged to harmonize with the whole. While the front grille, which expands and grows with the new generation, has a marking effect, the colour palette used makes the car attractive. Finally, when we look at the interior design, we can praise the spacious and comfortable cabin area in the vehicle rather than the design features. Especially the Chevrolet Captiva luggage volume is ideal for daily use with its 477-liter capacity.
