Chevrolet Captiva Sport Overview
Since its inception in 2006, the Chevrolet Captiva Sport has been engineered for use as a fleet vehicle. Rental car companies and other corporate entities custom order the Captiva Sport to fit their specific needs.
A 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 182 horsepower is standard, as are a six-speed automatic transmission and front wheel drive. All-wheel drive is not available on the Captiva Sport.
The current Captive Sport seats five and is available in LS, LT and LTZ trims. There's 29.2 cubic feet of cargo space, which can be expanded to 56.4 cubic feet by folding the second-row seats.
Common standard features include full power accessories, air conditioning, cruise control, keyless entry and a six-speaker stereo with a USB port. Depending on the model year, options may include automatic climate control, Bluetooth, satellite radio, a 10-speaker audio system, the OnStar telematics system, navigation, leather upholstery, heated front seats and a sunroof.
A suite of air bags, anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control come standard on the Captiva Sport. A rearview camera and rear sparking sensors are available.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave the 2015 Captiva Sport an overall rating of three out of five stars, with three stars in front and side crash tests and four stars in rollover tests.
While the Captiva Sport's level of standard equipment matches what you'll find on many compact SUVs, it lacks the all-wheel drive option and more powerful engine choices that you're likely to find elsewhere. As a result, we recommend checking out a few other compact SUVs before you buy, including the Chevrolet Equinox, Ford Escape, Honda CR-V, Hyundai Tucson, Mazda CX-5, Nissan Rogue, Subaru Forester and Toyota RAV4.
