Think twice....

In some SUVs, the rear boot space is a crumple zone. In the event of someone rear ending the vehicle hard, the boot area crumples/crushes absorbing the energy and protecting the people in the back.

Not the correct place for children ... me thinks

Disclaimer: No idea if this is true for the Tuscan...

I've driven both Tucson and Captiva and I will buy Captiva hands down with my eyes close without a second thought.

The quality is much better and it feels well planted on the roads compared to the Tucson. Not much gadgetry in the Captiva though.

And atleast in urban markets, it has sold decently well, definitely exceeding the expectations a typical Team-BHPian might have of a 20-lakh GM product.

However, Captiva does not 4wd in the manual transmission mode.

Tucson - Bad Idea considering resale value and maintenance

Try Captiva it is a good bet, even Grand Vitara is a better option today and lastly if you can wait go for the Fortuner in Oct.
