Thats a nice looker. If it comes with an adequate common-rail at 15 lakhs, I'll look to be amongst the first in the buyer's list

It looks better than most except for crv (but its not even anything less than crv) but diesel is an added advantage and if they price it right like below 14 Ex Delhi then it might be a good seller ,and when it comes to pricing even GM can surprise like Maruti

she is a looker no doubt. Common rail and a bit of common sense pricing should make this one a sure winner.

Sloppy handling, lumpy ride, not as accomplished as a Tuscon

Oh that doesn't sound good especially since chevy's here are known for their exemplary ride and neutral handling.

If I know Chevrolet, their pricing is going to be not-so-common-sense and that is the area they'll mess up first. Will have to wait and see but I dont think they'll prove me wrong

Which version did you drive? The petrol I drove didnt have SLOPPY handling (not so great maybe, but def not sloppy) and it did have a decent ride.

It had a large and rather anaemic V6 petrol engine, though. The Tuc feels better because its lighter and smaller.

Nice find tushky, CAPTIVA is quite a looker. If GM prices it right, than the segment is in for some serious competition.

@ V - 16, looking at how they got the Optra Magnum price bang on i expect GM to do the same with the Captiva.

Has the captiva been launched,spotted a GJ registered[permanent registration] captiva in Pune city.

Looked very well maintained and clean[inspite of the rains] so much so that it did not look like a test vehicle at all[no camouflage as well].

i think no. because most of the GM test car's are being tested with GJ registered number plate. i had seen Spark,U-VA with GJ no. plate
