Auto Esporte Reveals Photo Of “Mini Captiva”5
Brazilian car magazine Auto Esporte apparently has the deets on the upcoming Gamma II-based crossover from Chevrolet that has been caught testing in heavy camouflage , and in Opel form as well.
Described as the “Mini Captiva”, its front fascia sports a modern take on Chevy’s design language and it will be sold in Brazil by 2013.
Would a Gamma II-based crossover make much sense in the American market? Sound off in the comments below.

Wow — if that’s what’s possible with the Gamma II, sign me up. This would go right against the Nissan Juke and upcoming Toyota sub-RAV4 crossover. I love it!
I 100% agree!
I’m sure frustrated that GM sends the cars I like overseas especially the hatchback models like Buick’s Excelle XT and Chevrolet’s Cruze Hatchback.
While we might eventually get them, I wish we had first dibs. Now here is another example of General probably assuming this mini crossover isn’t marketable in the U.S.
Yeah. It sure sucks to get vehicles (that I would buy personally — like the Cruze Hatch) long after they’ve been introduced in other markets.
I think this is a consequence of the autogeddon and GM’s trip to the bankruptcy courts, making current product plans are a bit rigid. I hope this doesn’t last long!
This winter I was in upstate New York and in the Poconos in P.A. and saw all the SX4’s
and Subies traveling the interstate and back road ski country, thinking these would be the perfect choice for my car for my wife to travel back and forth to work. Now I see that GM has the perfect vehicle for her and I have to drive to Brazil to get it.
Let’s hope it’s a global car!
