More photos and detail after the jump.

Outgoing Captiva has such an old timer interior, much like the Chevy Epica that is available in Singapore. The dials are 80's green, and the interior design is not something state of the art either. The facelift version is at least correctly illuminated with bright Ice Blue. The metallic accents lift the ambiance too.

Meter binnacles with Ice blue illumination, stylish clock and  classy switches gave a touch of  modernism

3rd row seat is reasonably OK but eats boot space

Mere centimeters of boot length with seats up

Some vital equipment list:

  • Hill Descent Control
  • Rear aircon
  • Cruise Control
  • Dual front airbags, plus curtain airbags
  • ABS,EBD,ESP and Brake Assist
  • Isofix seat mount
