In India, the Captiva never managed to make a strong case for itself as a premium 7-seat SUV. The crossover has been replaced by the ladder-frame Trailblazer recently. GM India is currently in the process of redefining its product portfolio by discontinuing slow sellers and introducing fresh models.
