The car is priced (tentatively) at a little less than 18 lkahs ex-showroom, Madurai.
sad news looks like only the rich can buy a decent suv for others its the devil or the deep blue sea (scorpio/safari) why dont they lauch a decent suv in the 15lakh segment

GM please don't mess up with this car's pricing and please launch the AWD model and not the 2WD model.

As far as I know, the Captiva is 4wd, which is entirely upto its own computer/OBD. The car I drove has a drive train to all wheels.

The temperature display reminded me of how cool Madurai could get in winter - 38 degrees!

Didnt notice any rear A/C vents..

Yes, funny that! The car had no rear ac vents but the AC was very effective anyway.

Nice work! Do you think this will overthrow the CR-V?

Guys, whats VCDi? Chevy usually calls their common rails TCDi, right?

18lac, 140bhp (?) Diesel better looks.

I have seen people hesitating to buy Magnum coz Magnum (and now Captiva) had the engine once seen in Elantra CRDi though now the plant is owned by GM.

CRV look out?

I personally hate the looks of the CRV.

Nice Pics - Looks Huge.

A price lesser than the CRV will definetely make this baby click ( And then the Diesel Engine also !!! )

@ BUSA - Gautam has said the right thing !! Any thing and it has to be Peterefied. Hahaha

No pictures of the front ?

And leg room for the middle row of seats looks pretty restricted (I don't know if it has anything to do with the angle of the shot). Rear seats folding flush in the floor means that the last row of seats are lower than those in any other SUV, right ?

jyobeb,

Thanks for sharing the pics. Really cool!

- Looks sorta like CRV. Why can't we have more of SUVs which look like Pajero, Safari and Endeavour. I personally dislike the typical crossover look of CRV and (now) captiva.

- The interior combination of beige and grey looks quite bad. Probably looks better in flesh.

- Grey plastics don't appear to be of very high quality. Again, might look better in reality as opposed to pics.

How many variants and what is the cost of the entry-level variant?

Doesn't look too different than CR-V. NC, the second row leg space looks Ok to me, but the third row is for midgets and kids only? Actually I don't see any legspace for 3 row. Padmasan is the way to go...?
