The SUV made from “Chinese” was supposed to appear in the neighboring country two years ago, they even opened orders there, but then The launch of the model was cancelled. But now the latest version has been announced.
The original Chevrolet Captiva crossover is well known to residents of Uzbekistan, because it was assembled there until the fall of 2018. A three-row SUV made from the “Chinese” Baojun 530, which Chevy itself positions as a second-generation Captiva, was supposed to appear in the neighboring country as an imported model. UzAuto Motors opened accepting orders for such an SUV in September 2021, announcing prices and configurations. But already in November of the same year, the company stopped concluding contracts, and then returned their money to clients and even provided compensation. “This is happening for the first time in the history of the company, but we have repeatedly reported that today the global automotive industry is going through difficult times, and our company is no exception,” UzAuto Motors said then. Probably, there simply weren’t enough cars for Uzbekistan (the main habitat of the “second” Captiva is Latin America and the Middle East). And here's another attempt: UzAuto has again announced a crossover.

The previous time in Uzbekistan they were going to sell Captiva after the first restyling (it was carried out at the end of 2020). Now our neighbors have been promised a newly modified SUV, which has just launched on the Mexican and Middle Eastern markets.
Let us remind you that after the current modernization, Captiva partially returned to the design of the original “second” model, that is, the 2018 model. So, on the front bumper there is again an insert with “horseshoes” on the sides, the radiator grille and LED running lights located on top have taken the same shape, and a long reflective strip has again appeared on the rear bumper. Although there are also fresh solutions, among them are darkened chrome and new taillights. The length of the SUV is 4670 mm, the wheelbase is 2750 mm.
