Holden is General Motors' Australia division, and along with its unique name, the division has the unique distinction of having two Captiva models in its range. These are the Captiva 7, which is the European market Chevrolet Captiva, and the Captiva 5, that's essentially a re-badged Opel Antara. There's been some talk about dropping the Captiva 5 due to declining sales, but for now Holden will keep it going with a modest refresh.
The Captiva 5 Series II sports a new grille with mesh detailing and some fresh alloy wheel designs. Performance-wise, the new Series II model gains a new generation 2.2-liter four-cylinder diesel engine delivering 181-horsepower. Also found is an updated 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with 165-horsepower, while the new turbo diesel model is equipped with an electronically controlled active all-wheel drive system. Holden also states that the vehicle benefits from a smoother ride and improved handling characteristics.
