The 2016 Chevrolet Captiva has just been launched in South Africa and I was lucky enough to drive the enhanced model from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town.

Yes, it is heavy (2,5 ton!), but it made mince meat of the road ahead. Little over 700 km of driving was dispatched on a single tank of fuel, with enough left in the tank to complete a 1000 km journey.

The trip also gave me enough time to get acquainted with the Chevrolet Captiva and this video highlights five reasons why I think this SUV is worth considering.
