Default Scoop: Chevrolet Captiva "transform" uncloaked

Transform = face lift.

^^ This nose job looks quite similar to the 2010 Outlander.

What is with the term Transform, every one seems to be naming thier facelift as Transform, I guess its inspiration from the movie Transformers.

On a serious note, I guess Chevy is seems to be mimicking the Ford's methodology of having one theme in all its vehicles (seems similar to Beat, Cruze nose)

We saw Ford doing the same for its model line up in India, giving it a Kinetic look for Fiesta, then ikon and Figo.

Very aggressive face. This isn't caught in India, right?

Surely not - the vehicle in pic being an LHD.
And of course, there has to be a difference in GM and Skoda's strategy of displaying LHD cars in Indian showrooms/website

Well this actually looks more like the lovely Subaru Forester. Love that car.. I wish it was still in production! Like the look of the Captiva now though.

It was high time Chevrolet camme with a change for the captiva, as good as the current model looks , this change will be very refreshing. The current model looks more better IMHO, the new one has been designed to have a family resemblance I guess. Either ways its quite a capable car.

IMO The existing captive was looking better .Grill /front end looks like a inspiration from Mitsubishi Outlander(which was a inspiration from EVO)

What ever said i love CAPTIVA for its build quality and looks

Very true. The old look is far better.

I have one in the family. Doesn't look like too much of a change from what pics we have. And like many I too agree that the last one was better looking.

Thanks for sharing the photo. Like everyone else said, this looks completely like the Outlander.

I kind of like the current Captiva.

Hope they price it well, I ve heard that mitsubishi is contemplating the launch of a smaller sized outlander for 15 lakhs. The current Captiva is well priced but keeping in mind the competition I guess GM will have to lower the costs to maintain its sales.
