    2012 Chevy Captiva Sport - Join GMTC to be part of the biggest Chevy Truck/SUV Forum on the planet.The Captiva Sport is coming to the states in a big way. It's really the last generation of the Saturn Vue (WHICH I LOVED!) and it's being rebadged as the Chevrolet Captiva Sport.

    2012 CHEVY CAPTIVA SPORT UPDATE
    Starting in late 2011 for the 2012 model year, the Vue will be reintroduced as the "Chevrolet Captiva Sport" for fleet buyers in the United States. This decision materialised to fill the void abdicated for compact crossovers as Chevrolet phases out the HHR. Chevrolet will offer a 2.4-liter inline-four or a 3.0-liter V6, both coupled with six-speed automatics.

    Here's what's posted on WikiPedia about it:
    The Opel Antara is a compact crossover SUV, which was a co-development between Opel, the German subsidiary of General Motors (GM), andGM Daewoo, the South Korean equivalent. The Antara, based on the GM Theta platform, shares its underpinnings and powertrains with theChevrolet Captiva. However, it has a different exterior and interior design, along with different exterior dimensions. In the United Kingdom, the car is sold as the Vauxhall Antara. In Australasia the car is badged Holden Captiva, and in the United States and Canada it has been sold as theSaturn Vue from 2007 through to 2009. The Antara goes by the name GMC Terrain in the Middle East,[2] Daewoo Winstorm MaXX in South Korea, and as the Chevrolet Captiva Sport in the Americas and India.

    Will it only be available to fleet buyers, and won't it compete with the Equinox?

    That sucks because i like the HHR alot, but they still command to much for my budget on the used market.

    Newbie here. I have a privately owned Captiva Sport LT. Has the same V6 as in the Chevy Traverse. But smaller than an Equinox. It pulls pretty hard 0-60 and stops... well.... like an Equinox.
