Chevrolet began deliveries of its Captiva fleet vehicle last week. The compact crossover is imported from Mexico and bears a striking resemblance to the recently deceased Saturn Vue. Don't think we're about to see the vehicle show up in the company's consumer lineup, however. General Motors says that the Captiva will remain a fleet-only offering in the near future. That doesn't mean that GM isn't keen to grow its compact crossover offerings, though. Automotive News reports that GM is currently mulling a high-riding vehicle based on the Sonic for both Chevrolet and Buick.
Earlier this year, our spy photographers spotted a high-riding Sonic out testing, and the AN report suggests that the baby Buick crossover could arrive on showroom floors sometime next year, possibly as a 2013 model. The only question is whether or not Chevrolet will follow suit with a version of its own. That would leave the Chevy lineup with the Traverse, Equinox and this new model for a very crossover-heavy lineup. GM is apparently considering every angle at this point.
