Chevrolet Captiva deals: Car deal of the week

Get a massive £6,500 off the Chevrolet Captiva SUV - available from £20,495

The Chevrolet Captiva 4x4 is a bargain compared to its rivals, but now there is an extra £6,500 knocked off the mid-range LT specification, meaning the seven-seat SUV is now available from just £20,495.

Facelifted in 2011, the new and improved car is much more comfortable thanks to a new suspension set-up. It’s incredibly safe, too, with the refreshed car scoring the maximum five stars in the stringent Euro NCAP crash tests.

Every car comes packed with plenty of safety equipment, including front, side and curtain airbags, hill-start assist, electronic stability control, traction control and ISOFIX child seat anchor points. Standard equipment is generous and includes 17-inch alloys, separate air-conditioning controls for the driver and passenger, as well as four-wheel drive, DAB radio, electric windows, trip computer and roof rails.

Buyers will certainly get a lot of car for their money as there’s loads of room inside, with plenty of cubbyholes for extra storage – including a glove compartment with inner coolbox, deep door bins and several cup holders. Access to the third row of seats is easy and there’s lots of headroom for tall passengers. However, leave the rearmost seats folded flat and you’ll benefit from an impressive 465-litres of space, increasing to a huge 1,565-litres with the middle row of seats folded flat.

Chevrolet also offers a very decent five-year warranty that includes roadside assistance and servicing, but there have been very few reports of breakdowns or problems with the mechanics. In fact, Chevrolet jumped to a respectable 20th place in the 2013 Driver Power customer satisfaction survey.

There is a pair of turbocharged 2.2-litre diesel engines, ranging from 161bhp to 181bhp, though the smaller engine is only available on the five-seat model in entry-level LS spec. The more practical seven-seat model with the more powerful engine, will do 44.1mpg when matched with the six-speed manual gearbox.
