    I have driven it (2.2 LTZ), it amazingly good vehicle. The sound system the power delivery, driving thru city & highway, fit and finish. it just superb.
    There are 2 problems,
    1) its CBU Import from Malaysia/korea. Costing whooping 32.5 L on road in bangalore.
    2) Resale value.

    Pajero is better

    • Abhishek Tyagi

      You have to drive it once.

        Abhishek, mere difference in ground clearance means a lot. Captiva looks to be more of a crossover.

  • Hellraiser

    This bulbous beast now looks more dignified and mature. Agree with Abhishek about the resale value, but the best option is: buy it, use it (full paisa vasool types) and don’t worry about the resale. I am sure that for the time it is with you, it will keep a ear-to-ear grin firmly plastered onto your face.

  • Joseph

    I agree with Abhishek, Captiva is such an amazing vehicle. I am a proud owner of 2010 Captiva LT. The power that you get on highways and smooth maneuvering in the city is the best. Agree, It is a crossover, but it gives you the handling comfort of a sedan, power of SUV and space of a MUV. A total unrated Car in India.
