The Diesel model is currently not available in this region, import model from the UK would be the Diesel 1.9DDiS manual transmission ONLY.

But I agree, it would be the number one seller, but very expensive $$$$.

First Impressions:

If you already have the 06/08 SGV, the 09 face-lift is not worth the upgrade. But, if you've never owned one, by all means buy one today. There were no 2.4s/3.2s for test drive. I wanted to see if the additional 26/39 horses were worth it.

It's the same vehicle - the dimensions are the same. This is a minor face-lift.

The most significant thing for me is the Front/Rear Disc brakes upgrade.

2009 2.0L Leather & Fabric on display:
- They've made the main grill and mesh below bigger
- Xenon, Cruise control & Sunroof is now standard on the leather models
- The 17" wheels resemble the 16" on the 06/08. (Don't like it)
- Wing mirror turn signal is not LED, just a bulb with an angled lens to give the effect.
- The fender turn signal has been removed since there is now one on the wing mirror
- The wing mirrors are STILL manual folding.
- Marble trim replaces the wood grain depending in the vehicle colour
- New colours like the Metallic Navy Blue Pearl. The Plum is weird.
- The info display has moved from on top of the centre A/C vents to the instrument cluster
- An almost invisible 'D' shaped curve around the headlights
- Front and rear disc brakes
- They now have Beige upholstery/interior (yuck) in addition to beige leather/interior
- A centre speaker has replaced the info display
- 7.1 Sound system sounds better that the previous 6.1 model
- ESP & brake assist (2.4L & 3.2L only)
- No door lights on the 2.0, only on 2.4 & 3.2
- They may not bring the 3.2 except on order ($425 is high). The mid sized Captiva is only $328. The full size Grand Cherokee is $500k.
- Same head & tail lights.
- They brought back that shitty Bridgestone Dueler H/T 687 tire. New buyers should change immediately. Terrible on wet roads.

For 06/08 SGV Owners - The following shall soon be available as upgrades: Cruise control, indicator mirrors, Rear Disc upgrade and if yuh bounce yours you could change to the 09 front grill and bumper.

I must admit I was distracted by the Porsche Cayenne GTS which was parked in its enclosure. After getting a hands-on tour of the GTS, it makes me want to spend $1.3M. :lol: 8-)

its a better vehicle than the Hyundai Tucson, Kia Sportage and Honda CR-V but the Toyota RAV4, Mitsubishi Outlander, Mazda CX-7 and Subaru Forester is better. In terms of price we can throw in the Hyundai Santa Fe and Kia Sorento which is better as well and they're turbo diesel.

I agree totally. And, it's unfortunate that the prices are now so high. You can get a lot more vehicle/features from other brands for the price of the 2.4L SGV ($340K). The larger 2.5L X-Trail for example, is $330K.

x2floor, you can add the 2.0L Turbo Diesel Chevy Captiva (Sport) Mid-sized SUV to your list from Jan.09.

I had to squash my upgrade plans, the minor facelift ain't worth it. I think I'll buy the diesel Captiva instead. RAV4 too small.

Yeah boy, Tucson sales are up. And their prices haven't varied much since the model's introduction 3 yrs ago, unlike Suzuki - prices are now ridiculous.

^^^I heard that Hyundai had to re-adjust their thinking about the trini market because they supposedly re-directed a shipment bound for the UK to Trinidad's port to get them offloaded to meet our local demand. The sales rep told me that and despite being the 2nd cheapest new cross-over SUV on our market its the #1 seller taking that crown away from the likes of the X-Trail and Grand Vitara.

norstar2k, I totally forgot to mention the Chevrolet Captiva which for $349k you getting an Alloytec 3.2 V6 and this thing is based on the latest GM cross-over architecture......its our local market best kept secret. The underpinnings of this vehicle is the same as the Chevrolet Equinox, Pontiac Torrent, Suzuki XL-7 and Saturn VUE if Im not mistaken (Theta unibody platform), it also has an optional Italian VM Motori 2.0 SOHC 16V Turbo Diesel CRDi with 150HP and 250Nm which is essentially the equivalent of the 2.7 V6 engines found in top grade Tucsons and Grand Vitaras with the exception of greater fuel efficiency more on the Captiva.

So its actually an upgrade if you decide to go that route and last I heard from the grapevine, Trinidad Automobiles is being bought over by LifeStyle Motors so sales and service reputation is gonna head for the better.

Good info x2floor. The buyout of TA is complete actually. It's this option I was going to use to get the Captiva now that it's a Lifestyle product. And as you know I can't get better service than Lifestyle. I was skeptical about Chevy, but I've heard great things about their quality and performance.

Lifestyle now has 3 levels of SUVs:
- The compact Suzuki Grand Vitara
- The midsized Chevy Captiva
- The fullsized Jeep Grand Cheerokee

Nice move Lifestyle!

No, why? Those are the specs I got for the local Turbo Diesel CRDi unit expected in January. Current local offerings are the 2.0L and 2.4L Gas.

Interestingly though, after checking, the uni-body platform (crossover style) is not ladder framed. I was told by a LStyle rep that it DID have a ladder frame. :)
