2012 Chevrolet Caprice | new car review
The 2012 Chevrolet Caprice is based on its Australian counterpart the Holden WM and is available for sale under the Chevy badge in the Middle East and America. It hasn’t received an upgrade since 2006 and it has seen service in police forces of Dubai and Oman. It is more like a four-door muscle car having replaced the Lumina as the performance sedan in Chevrolet’s lineup.

The top end variant gets additional chrome claddings, Xenon lamps and 18-inch wheels.
Standard safety features includes Linear Control Suspension, Electronic Stability Program, ABS, Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and Electronic Brake Assist (EBA).
