Rest in peace: Holden's faithful Captiva bows out

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - Holden’s new Acadia SUV means a farewell for the Holden Captiva. The South Korean-built SUV has been a faithful servant for Holden since it launched in New Zealand in 2006. It’s been through upgrades, facelifts and and even minor name changes — including Captiva 5, 7 and MaXX designations — but has remained fundamentally the same for a dozen years.

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - Joining the Astra hatchback, that will be launched in February this year, will be the Astra sedan, that was badged Chevrolet Cruze at the motor show. Replacing the Korean built Captiva SUV will be the compact crossover Equinox, based on another all-new platform from General Motors, post-GFC. The Holden Spark was the first vehicle built on an all-new platform post-GFC. They will also join the all-new Trax small SUV, that will be launched in February, with the Astra sedan expected in New Zealand shortly after the Australia launch in May. By late 2017, the Acadia large SUV will go on sale.

Holden Captiva LTZ 2016 Review

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - Like a coach trying to coax one more season out of a veteran football star, Holden has given its Captiva SUV yet another refresh. The smaller five-seater version has been dropped, leaving the more popular seven-seater to go it alone. Here we are testing the top-spec LTZ turbo-diesel, which adds some luxury and safety equipment to an already attractive price. But like that footballer, the Captiva is past its best, and really needs to make way for a fitter replacement.

Is Holden's facelifted Captiva LTZ good enough in 2016?

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - The revised Captiva has a new look that includes LED daytime running lamps mounted within its headlights, a redesigned grille, new wheels and different bumpers that look a little like aftermarket touches. On the inside, the big news is a new 7-inch touchscreen display features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity offering sat nav and internet radio through your smartphone.

After a decade, Holden Captiva still has a big audience

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - We should be getting a replacement for Captiva, but instead it's a minor facelift. It doesn't stop Holden's SUV from clocking up sales, though. The biggest news for the facelift is the way the car interacts with your mobile device. Captiva still has the excellent MyLink operating system behind its touch-screen, but it also now has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone projection.

2017 Holden Captiva spied testing

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - The 2017 Chevrolet Equinox, which could come here as the 2017 Holden Captiva, has once again been spied testing in heavy camouflage. The Equinox, previously spied last month, was this time caught testing alongside the Opel Meriva and Opel Insignia this week.

2016 Holden Captiva LTZ Diesel Review: the Budget Seven Seat Solution

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - Updates to the 2016 Holden Captiva range see the previous two-body range pared back to one body-style, with three different trim levels. The face is new, thanks to a restyled bumper and headlights, but everything behind that, right down to the alloy wheel design, stays the same as it was. The top-spec LTZ and mid-spec LT pick up new body-coloured wheel arch flares to set them apart from the previous generation Captiva, and there’s a healthy dose of chrome bling to dress the LTZ up further.

2017 Holden Captiva spied testing in Chevrolet guise

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - The now long-anticipated replacement for the Holden Captiva may have surfaced this week, with a new mid-sized Chevrolet SUV prototype hitting the road overseas. The new SUV is likely to be the new-generation Chevrolet Captiva, which could also make its way to the US as the downsized new Equinox reported last year. The model shown here is a right-hand-drive vehicle, although left-hand-drive versions have also appeared in the North American press.
