I have seen them on the road. They look too small for me.

Rebadged Saturn VUE, from the research i have done. They are only sold in Canada, in the US as a fleet vehicle. I few have found their way into mainstream when they are sold from the rental cars companies etc. Chevy did not want to release it to dealers in the US because they were afraid they would take away from Nox sales. The great part about Chevy doing this is it gets the NOX away from fleet sales which will increase the resale value in the long term.

Actually its Opel antara from back 2006. It was very bad on gas. V6 was doing 15-16mpg. If they would bring the diesel version it would be one greater car.

08 VUE had the same body style, i stand corrected borrowed from Opel who isn't sold in US. so for us in the lower 48 we only saw the VUE which was gone with saturn.

I actually had a crush on the Saturn VUE Redline when it was released. But i've since lost my luster when the New NOX was released. Hence why i bought one lol

Unless something has changed recently, technically its not available for sale in N/A.

The Captiva is a buffer car used to pervent sales to fleets where company's have volume discounting i place

Saturn Vue Chevrolet Captiva Sport announced for U.S. fleet customers

Chevy's newest U.S. model to skip showrooms

I agree about the 2.2 TDI version...though GM should just put it in the Nox/Terrain. On Euro ratings, its highway is 42mpg, would be slightly less in the US

They have the Captiva (not the fleet version) for sale at a dealership in Louisiana. I saw it on a commercial and had to look into it and I also saw a black one on the road and it was not the Saturn Vue model.

Yeah if it's smaller than my Nox now I would not buy it.

Default Just traded my Equinox

Picked up a 2012 Captiva AWD with 38,000 miles and really like it. I liked the Equinox ok but this is much better for me. If anyone else is driving one of these cars let me hear from you and your impressions.
