Chevrolet Captiva: winter olympics Designer searches were not limited to exterior restyling. The result of the latter was slightly changed dimensions and volume of internal space. The new body geometry is not only a tribute to fashion, but also an improvement in aerodynamic qualities.

Chevrolet Captiva: winter olympics The climate settings are finely tuned, but they do not work perfectly - you can feel the temperature drops in the cabin at the time of regulation. On the horizontal panel, you can activate the "off-road mode".

Chevrolet Captiva: winter olympics Radio with a soft stroke of the keys and a distinct return. The downside is the radio. The radio searches for a station for a long time when switching. I don’t understand what this is connected with, maybe I should have studied the settings more deeply.

Chevrolet Captiva: winter olympics Switching gears is convenient. The atmospheric engine provides smooth traction. The claimed consumption is obviously lower than the real one. Especially if we talk about metropolitan traffic and automatic transmission.

Chevrolet Captiva: winter olympics The sound quality of the built-in speakers is acceptable.

Chevrolet Captiva: winter olympics The radiator grille, which has already become recognizable, provides the proper level of cooling for the “heart”.

Chevrolet Captiva: winter olympics Several packages are offered. The most "off-road" - Irmscher. Provides better cross-country ability in difficult conditions. In our case it was an alpine skiing trip where Captiva took us.

Chevrolet Captiva: winter olympics The same package allows you to increase the ground clearance - by 35 mm.

Chevrolet Captiva: winter olympics If you do not want to drive, then the "economy driving mode - ECO" will help save fuel.

Chevrolet Captiva: winter olympics The Captiva moves confidently through the snow, without the risk of getting stuck. But with deep snowdrifts, it’s not worth the risk, after all, this is a city dweller.

Chevrolet Captiva: winter olympics But it will take you to the nearest ski slope easily, quickly and with a breeze. You can reach speeds up to 200 km / h, although we did not experiment with extreme points.
