Following the death of the Saturn Vue and cancellation of the Vuick, Chevy is back for round three with the Captiva Sport.
Essentially a rebadged Opel Antara, the Captiva Sport is a Mexican-made crossover which is aimed at fleet customers who demand "a contemporary five-seat crossover with a comprehensive range of features and amenities." As such, the model comes nicely equipped with air conditioning, power locks / windows, a six-speaker audio system and 17-inch aluminum wheels.
Under the hood, two engines will be available. The entry-level 2.4-liter Ecotec produces 182 hp (136 kW / 185 PS) and 172 lb-ft (233 Nm) of torque, while the 3.0-liter V6 develops 264 hp (197 kW / 268 PS) and 222 lb-ft (301 Nm) of torque. Both engines are paired to a six-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive is optional.
Look for the Captiva Sport to start showing up at airport rental offices sometime in the fourth quarter.
