Cropley's Geneva: Chevrolet Captiva
3 March 2006

'The new Chevrolet Captiva SUV, due in showrooms at mid-year, looks a great buy and also shows how Vauxhall’s pricier Antara model will look. Both models, Captiva and Antara, will be made by GM Daewoo in Korea.'

'Captiva base model costs only £17,000-ish with 2.0 litre petrol engine, five seats and two-wheel-drive, but still looks brilliant value against the competition in its ritziest £23k guise, with top-spec interior, seven-seats and four-wheel-drive. Captiva is roomy and handsome; just the car to establish Chevrolet (formerly Daewoo) brand in the hearts and minds of a whole new breed of UK customers.'

Steve Cropley
