Chevrolet Captiva LTZ 2011

Chevrolet Captiva LTZ 2011 features 18" alloys, 7" Satellite Navigation unit, privacy glass, reclining flat-folding rear passenger seat, ABS, ESC, traction control, unique rear light clusters and a 4-star crash rating. Overall, a nice packaged common consumer SUV.


  • New range-topping Captiva LTZ introduced
  • Best ever specification for Captiva range
  • Five speed manual or automatic gearbox
  • Very competitively priced against premium marques

For fleet managers seeking to offer executives a high spec SUV option at a very competitive price, the new Captiva LTZ model from Chevrolet offers the answer.

Standard equipment in this roomy seven-seater includes full leather trim with heated front seats, electronic climate control, cruise control, electrically-adjustable driver’s seat, automatic headlamp control, rain sensor wipers, and electrically-folding mirrors

The LTZ has classic Chevy styling enhanced by bold 18-inch alloys and unique rear light clusters. Privacy glass as standard adds a cool touch in more ways than one by both increasing the aesthetic appeal of the LTZ and helping to keep down the internal temperature. Considerably flexibility comes from the 60/40 split, reclining flat-folding rear passenger seat.

Safety features abound, including ABS, ESC and traction control and there are both front and side airbags for the driver and front passenger, plus roof curtain airbags. The Isofix child seat restraint system is fitted along with child locks on the rear doors. These features result in a four-star crash rating for the Captiva LTZ.

In addition to audible distance sensors to assist parking, the LTZ also has a reversing camera as standard. This gives a view lower than that which the driver would get through the back window, not only making parking easier but also reducing the risk of minor scrapes and protecting pedestrians.

The camera operates through the 7-inch satellite navigation unit display screen. This uses simple touch screen technology to allow fast and safe access to the many features of the unit, which range from Points of Interest to a postcode search facility. USB and SD card inputs provide additional sources for music and video clips.

Both manual and automatic options are powered by the 150PS 2.0 litre VCDi diesel engine. Combined fuel economy figures are 38.2 mpg for the manual and 32.8 mpg for the automatic. The manual emits 197 g/km of CO2 and the automatic 225 g/km. A manual Captiva LTZ with no options would attract a 31% BIK rate for tax year 10/11, which for a 40% tax payer represents £3,326.

Keith Jones, Chevrolet National Fleet Sales Manager, believes that the new Captiva LTZ represents exceptional value for money to fleet operators and is a worthy consideration for today’s demanding User Chooser driver.

“This is a high quality SUV that matches more premium marques on specification, comfort, ride and handling. The initial surge in demand suggests that we have absolutely the right product offer and that Captiva LTZ is a car that fleet managers and company car drivers want to see on their choice lists from which to choose.”
