Chevrolet Captiva, My next generation potent machine
Pros : Powerful engine, stylish appearance and good features
Cons : Very low fuel economy
Hello !! this is Mihir Verma and I have been a proud owner of this roadster since 2009. With Captiva on highways, I have touched top speed of 145 and at such a speed mark, I find this potent machine a totally throttling fantasy. The broad tubeless wheels of Chevrolet Captiva allow it to run it like a panther with commendable road grip and stability.
In terms of looks too my Chevy Captiva is far better than other crossovers like Honda CR – V and Ford Endeavour. The make and styling of Chevy Captiva is enchanted by its muscle and sporty front grilles, roof rails and decent width that add beauty to the overall construction of this car.
My Chevy Captiva LTZ is a fully loaded vehicle as it comes equipped with features like multi functioning steering wheel, Anti – lock Braking System with the exceptional EBD function, Airbags, Height adjustable driver’s seat, rocking music system etc. For any car buyer, I feel mileage is the major concern. While purchasing this car, I thought that the captiva will have a decent fuel economy than CR – V, Fortuner and Endeavour, but the fuel efficiency of this car has not been fair enough. I am getting mileage of 7 – 8 km/l from my Captiva. As far as the maintenance costs are concerned, I think that the servicing and maintenance charges of Chevrolet Captiva are slightly higher than its competitors.
I would suggest buyers this car only if they are looking for cool features and stylish SUV, but if a decent mileage from a crossover is the priority of the buyer, Captiva might not be a correct choice to go with.
