I assume the captiva would be here with the same 2L optra diesel powerplant. If they price it well, they might end up selling quite a few.

Nice find Tushky and good to see you watermarking your pictures. Make it bigger and across the car so that no one photoshops it with white paint.

Good job again buddy.

You do an awesome job man! Way to go...

Nice that you have water-marked, and may be- you shouldn't sent this to OD.

The Captiva's got good style!
Though I do some influence from the Hyundai Tuscon towards the rear of the vehicle. The front has some bit of styling from the Kia Sorrento/Sportage.

If you check the follwoing link,you will see a nice set of wheels on the Captiva. {Almost like the ones on the BMW X5}

good job tushky, the shape looks a little out of proportion, especially the mirror region....

I suppose I am in the minority of TBHP members when I wonder why the hell are we getting more and more SUVs in this country. Is that what we really need?

Awesome Job Tushky. Was this a seven seater version ?

This one would rock if it comes in Diesel with seven seats.
