Our Verdict

SUVs these days are no more the beefy, muscular vehicles with high ground clearance and looking the off-roader in every bit, but instead, adapting to newer technology, changing viewpoints, SUVs don’t wear a tough stance, instead look and feel softer and the new Chevy Captiva is one such soft-roader that was first launched in 2008 and recently underwent a makeover. With this changeover, the sedan-like comfort in an SUV is well-represented. With international safety elements, powered engines and good drivability, the Captiva is perfect for families and highway driving. The exterior design stays intact with some changes in the interiors and 4x2 and AWD options added to the new Chevrolet Captiva.
