Captiva SUV gets high safety marks

GM Korea Co., the local unit of U.S. automaker General Motors Co., said yesterday that its Chevrolet Captiva crossover sport utility vehicle (SUV) won the highest safety mark in a European car test program.

“The Captiva made at the Bupyeong plant, west of Seoul, was awarded five stars in the European New Car Assessment Program crash test,” the company said.

It said the rating is a testament to the superior safety of the SUV and reflects GM Korea’s commitment to making the safest cars in the world. The latest model of the vehicle is marketed under the Chevrolet brand and began reaching domestic consumers in April, with total sales in Korea hitting 1,536 units as of late September.
