Fuel economy is not its greatest asset but the high spec of the LTZ makes it a value for money purchase. Could do with a spare wheel opposed to the puncture repair gunk which was supplied from new. Sat Nav and electrics a little cheap, could have chosen higher spec as it is a GM product.
The Captiva easily pulls my caravan effortlessly and holds everything rock solid. Hill decent assist at the touch of a button and the automatic gearbox is really good when towing a caravan, 10/10.
I do 20,000 miles per year, mostly solo (kind of breaks with tradition of owning an SUV), and it is a comfortable ride.
Fitted with a DPF which (so I am told) burns fuel when in cleaning mode. Noisy engine fan clicks in when using the SUV with non motorway driving.
Salesman could have been better especially with his product knowledge. When I went to "say hello" a month later, he had left (or was he pushed?) :-)
Really good SUV where the automatic AWD clicks in when needed, without the driver even aware of the switchover.
