Brand New Chevrolet Captiva - 2.0 Vcdi Ls 5dr Fwd - £13,599 @ Motorpoint

Found 17th Mar 2011
Motorpoint are doing some cracking deals of Chevrolet Captiva's at the moment. For the last couple of weeks they've had the entry level petrol version for £11,999 but they've gone for now (my mum got one of them!).

They now have the diesel on sale, these are brand new delivery miles on an 11 plate.

I've driven the petrol and it's a good looking car, even entry specs are good. Drives well and is massive inside. Depreciation is high but if you're buying at this price it's not as bad. There's a new one out soon which is probably why these are going so cheap but it's still a lot of car for little money IMO.

Is this the 7 seater version then its hot for me

Fuel consumption (combined) 38.2 mpg -5 (to get close to reality) = 33.2mpg average

pretty poor for a diesel, that said I think overall a reasonable deal on price

Re-sale in 2 years...? will ve very poor

Where does it say that it is BRAND NEW?

Many Motorpoint cars are pre-registered imports.

Actually, my Antara (which is the same car) easily gets 37mpg regularly. Pretty darn good for a 4x4 SUV with such a high weight. Rules as always with these. Drive economically and green, smooth acceleration maximum economy speeds. Forget automatic. Read the manual so that you don't have air conditioning running all the time (modern demisting programs turn on the air conditioners). Use decent diesel, i.e. BP, etc. Do not use supermarket fuels like Sainsburys and Tescos.

Enjoy. Remember that diesel engines can have a long run in period. And never, never buy any diesel SUV if you intend to only use it for town run abouts. Diesels need to be over 30 mph for at least 15 mins periodically for particulate filter regeneration. if not they will burn through more fuel constantly trying to enter the regeneration mode. Plus short journeys don't allow engine to heat up.

Next winter and you'll be sorted.

Listen not to the naysayers. This is a great family vehicle and driven well offers good economy for its class and type. If you want a 4x4 with the best economy then it's the Jeep Patriot at 45mpg

This says FWD so not sure if that refers to front wheel drive or full wheel drive. If it's front wheel drive then you're incurring a weight and fuel economy penalty pointlessly.
