Spotted a Mexican version Nox

Living in AZ I sometimes see some cool and weird looking cars and trucks from Mexico driving around.
I was filling up the Nox last night and saw this cool looking Lil Suv. At first i thought it was a Saturn then a older Pontiac
Then i was shocked to see it was a Chevy. Once I saw the Mexican license plate i had a ahhhaw moment.
Took some pics of the back without being caught, but not the front since the Lady was byherself and i did not want to look like a creepy dude lol

Did some research today and found that its called a Chevy Captiva, guess it replaces the HHR in Mexico. It was just a lil bit smaller than my nox, but looked great and i liked the headlights and side vents. Tailights looked good too, here is some of my pics and a online pic of the front.
Has anyone else seem one of these?

Yeah, those things have a shorter wheelbase than the current Nox/Terrain....but 3rd row seating. Can you imagine an actual human with legs trying to sit back there? I can't even imagine a 3rd row with the longer wheelbase..

That is just a re-badged Saturn Vue. I saw them around too with US plate. The real Chevy Captiva sold elsewhere is built by Deawoo and has 7 seats and looks much better. They do have a 2.0 diesel option.

It's the same platform as the European models, and it's the older theta platform.

P.S. I thought this was a joke thread, and I'm gonna see a picture of the Nox with a mustache and sombrero

I think If Buick builds a smaller suv they prob will use a Theta platform. This Captiva base is much smaller scale, unless thats what Buick is gonna go for.
