Captiva will be launched around April 2008. This is based on confirmed feedback from GM. It is expected to be priced in the range of 15-20 lac. However, Toyota Fortuner could be launched this year. maybe around Diwali. The Safari & the Scorpio (with new engine) is also slated for launch around Diwali this year.
Somehow, an 4X4 SUV with AT????????? I presume you will want to do off-roading with the 4X4. To enjoy your SUV you should go for MT and not AT.
Anyway its your money and choice. All the best.

Hi Arjun! tahnks for the info .I too got a feedback from GM and i was told that the price of the captiva may even exceed the CR-V and the reason told was that it will be a diesel , 7 seater and bigger than the CR-V ?? I really dont know how will they sell a Chevrolet (daewoo) that is priced more than a Honda ... A ques only GM can answer .
I'm looking for an SUV with the following requirements: Efficient Petrol engine + 7/8 seater + Affordable price (not the CRV range). Any suggestions?
Can sggest you to go for the Toyota Innvoa Diesel or the Safari Diesel
Innova Diesel currently has 9/10 versions - price ranging from Rs.7.20 to 10.45 lac. Safari Diesel has 6 versions - price ranging from Rs.6.60 to 11.60 lac. Mileage of the Innova is approximately 10/11 in city & 14/15 on highway, while that of Safari is 9/10 in city & 13/14 on highway - depending on driving conditions & style.
I personally feel Innova is better. You can consider Innova G1 or G4 series (total 5 versions). G1 2ltr will cost Rs.7.45 lac, G4 2ltr Rs.8.25 lac, G1 2.5ltr Rs.8.15 lac, G4 2.5ltr (7 seater) Rs.8.85 lac & G4 2.5ltr (8 seater) Rs.8.90 lac. G4 series has better interiors & features than G1 series.
Dhiraj, Diesel engines are more sturdy, strong, have more load pulling capacity & longer life. Therefore, especially in big cars, Diesel engines are more preferred than Petrol ones. Anyway, information on the petrol versions of the two cars in question are listed below:
In my opinion, between Safari & Innova petrol, Innova will be a better choice. Between Innova Petrol & Diesel, Diesel will be a better choice - value for money.
Yes you are right pankaj ,
DHIRAJ - also keep in mind about your fuel bills and resale value will be very low for Muvs and Suvs which are having petrol engine , the Diesel now a days are the best and almost similiar to petrol in performance

Yes, very true. Captiva is priced Rs.18.62 lac (ex-showroom, Mumbai). It has 1991 CC engine that generates power of 150ps @ 4000rpm & torque of 320nm @ 2000rpm. Try this link to access other details & features of this SUV: http://www.carwale.com/Research/CarDetails-car-1295-bodyStyle-6.html
Yes, Captiva is 4-wheel drive for sure.
Just before it was launched I had read about it. I distinctively remember it is “All-wheel drive” and has some specialized characteristics for safe/secure drive in rough & bad roads.
Well... in that case I may be wrong / the article I read
Anyway, I'll try & re-check.
Thanks Suryanarayan & Banwari for the update.
In fact, I remembered distinctively because it said "All-wheel drive" instead of the conventional "4-wheel drive". Anyway!
In the meantime, I went around searching on various sites & just couldn't find a word on it being a 4WD - not even on its official website. Here's a link that provides beautifully all the information on Captiva: http://www.chevroletcaptivaindia.com/
