I got the OTR price last week when I went for a test drive.

People have to dish out a few extra lakhs in Bangalore due to taxes - probably the highest in India.

So by this process if CRV is 17 in Delhi it should be 20lac in Bangalore.

Talking Pics of the captiva

Well the delivery of the captiva has been taken and its being tested in the roadless roads of coorg. As demanded by me my bro send some pics which i am sharing here. Sorry for clarity issues as they are from a phone.
Well for starters i dont like the rear lights but i loved the entire side view and from front it looks great

PS: SIde foot board was extra and was in the range of 10k!!
Mileage with AC was 9kmpl. The car held together on bad to worse roads with good comfort for the passengers.

The last row of seats is not very comfortable for long journeys for adults as the leg and seat level are the same and also its cramped. Overall the review i got was its too expensive. 4 lacs lesser would have made it beautiful machine

Very nice
Brand new, no number plates too.
Yes, you are right. The rear is not doing justice to the look of this SUV.

Captiva has turned out to be one of the best looking SUVs here. I drool over its clean design lines. Makes me wonder what fell on the CRV designer's head to have such a complicated front!

Nice choice there. I really like the engine on the Captiva.

The car looks great front and front 3 quarters

But the rear looks a bit too odd.

None the less , Congrats and take care of the baby.

Well zenopia this is what GTO had to say. There was a discussion on this in this thread before.

Is it still sold by them? I was under (mistaken?) impression that they had stopped selling them.

Congratulations on the buy. Looks good and I bet it can take a little bit of off-roading too. Pity they dropped 4x4 option. IMHO at this price with 4x4 would have made a hot seller.

I'd say wait for the Mitsubishi Lancer or the Hyundai Santa Fe

Personal Opinion.
