Full Review

Exterior The Captiva has a very nice sporty look. The front as well as the back looks perfectly thought off. One can add sporty stickers if they do not like the single colour look. Size is also perfect and makes it easy to park in Malls or congested places.

Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) Very nice interiors. The foldings seats are fantastic. Can give ample space to store almost anything.

Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox The car is very smooth. Can easily revv to 170 kmph on the highway. Only issue is the 1920 CC engine which makes it a little wanting while overtaking and on inclines. The RAW power feel is missing. Fuel economy is good. Gives 11 km/l in city conditions with AC. Gives more in non AC conditions.

Gearbox is good and smooth.

Ride Quality & Handling Good handling. Smooth ride.

Final Words Extremely good buy - in the current SUV market in this range. Competition flaws as below:

Toyota Fortunner - Interiors are tacky. Else everything is good,

Mitsubishi Pajero - Very old technology. Interiors tacky,

Mitsubishi Outlander - Petrol Automatic - Fuel economy will kill you,

Honda CRV - Petrol on a SUV.... Same issue as above,

Ford Endeavor - Good heavy feel but vehicle too long.

Areas of improvement They should have a 3 Litre engine.
