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.'

    16 October 2017

    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
