Chevrolet Captiva full review

Chevrolet Captiva“THERE ARE NO direct rivals for the top-end Captiva softroader if you rank as starting points a high output V6 petrol motor, six-speed auto gearbox, seating for seven (at a pinch) and on-demand four-wheel drive system. Add the fact it is of monocoque or unibody construction, and it is separated even further from those more serious ladder-frame, transfer-case enabled options such as the Fortuner and Pajero sport.
