General Motors India has finally taken the wraps off the long overdue Tavera upgrade christened as Tavera Neo3, the utility vehicle gets some styling tweaks including reprofiled headlights and a new front bumper design. The front grille is larger too and in keeping with Chevrolet’s global design language. Top-end Tavera variants will now get contrasting paint for the bumpers and side cladding.
The interiors are spruced up too and come with a beige and dark grey colour theme within the cabin. However, the biggest change on the Tavera is the addition of a Sonalika-sourced 2-litre common-rail direct injection diesel engine. This BS 4 compliant engine will sell alongside the older BS 3 2.5-litre direct injection diesel powerplant.
Chevrolet also unveiled the refreshed version of the Captiva. The SUV now exhibits a bold new look thanks to its larger and more imposing split grille. The front bumper is new too and makes the Captiva look more macho than before. Completing the update is the new 2.2-litre turbocharged diesel engine that comes mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The new Captiva is scheduled to go on sale within the first quarter of 2012.
It has a fresh new sporty and muscular exterior design and a jet-black interior. Updates to the interiors however are not so comprehensive. It will have cruise control, a dual-row heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system, an electric parking brake, rain-sensing wipers and a sunroof.
