apart from the above mentioned there is cruise control , sun roof and remote operated automatic boot door opener with the new captiva awd !!

i am also told about some torque difference between the awd and the LT version. unfortunatly i dont have the right figures in hand , and i dont want to get bashed by my fellow T-BHP 'ians for giving the wrong info !!

nothing wrong in being optimistic i know the fortuner will be around 21+ add an extra lakh or 2 for taxes in Karnataka...
But to top it all no confirmed reports about its arrival !!!!! so this discussion might be absolutely pointless!!

The Captiva AT was shown to the public in the ACI show last year, and it has been confirmed for January launch by GM executives.

Its confirmed that captiva awd is launching this month.

GM is making it a big secret out of this, but its confirmed that the launch will be on 26th jan.

GM has announced the updated prices for the AWD/ AT Captiva. It is called Captiva "LTZ" and priced at Rs. 2,032,751 ex- showroom Cochin, while existing 2WD "LT" is at Rs. 1,864,754. Price difference is Rs. 1,67,997.

Compare the LTZ pricing to competition:

CRV 2.4 AT- Rs. 20,03,100
Outlander (Also AT): 20,35,000

Seems that Chevrolet has finally got pricing right.

Thats really good pricing... does it have all the other features mentioned in the thread besides the AWD + AT? Usually the price diff between auto and manual is around 1-1.5 lakhs.

Nope. The only additional features seem to be

- AWD
- AT
- Traction Control
- Descent Control
- ESP

Still, seems like a pretty good deal. I got the details from Captiva website.

Thanks for the link to the website. If it has a rear centre 3-point ELR seatbelt and a rollover sensor, then it should be a good competitor for the VW Tiguan. Although, the Tiguan received five stars in the EuroNCAP test versus the Captiva's four.

The Hindu : Business : General Motors launches upgraded Captiva

You bet, the premium for AWD is pretty reasonable. Would love to check it out and gauge whether the road manners have improved.

Well if that is the price comparison for CR-V and Captiva, its not a bad deal .
But if the CR-V is a CBU and captiva is made in India ( just assuming, not sure) then the pricing appears wrong.
