Holden Captiva

The Holden Captiva launched in 2006, plugging a gap for a mid-sized SUV in Holden’s range, long left open by the Frontera’s departure.

The Korean-sourced Captiva matched the move towards family SUVs much better than the Isuzu-based Frontera – or Commodore-based Adventra – with a much more city-friendly focus, as opposed to a more off-road-ready setup. The $26,490-$41,490 Captiva range offers both five and seven-seat options, two and four-wheel drive configurations, and the choice of petrol and diesel engines in its wide line-up, starting at the base Captiva 5 LS (FWD) and finishing at the Captiva 7 LTZ (AWD)
