GREAT little crossover!
After driving a couple other crossovers (even the Chevy Equinox), I decided I like the Captiva better and here's why: The car doesn't feel too heavy for the engine. Meaning-I don't feel like I'm lugging around extra weight that the little engine can't handle. It's good on gas! There's plenty of room to haul things. Obviously I wouldn't load this car down with a heavy load, but I can get more into it than I got into my Honda Civic. LOVE the heated seats. Obviously this wasn't a requirement when I was car shopping but it's definitely a plus! Great visibility out the sides and back. Tried out the Nissan Rogue, and Hyundai's crossover - they were bubble shaped, tiny back windows, and obstructions out the sides that added to my blind spots.
