Holden Captiva 5 To Join Popular SUV Range
GM Media Release
27 September 2009
Holden will add a new Captiva five-seater to its popular SUV range later this year.
Captiva 5 will offer an alternative for motorists that want the value, flexibility and safety features of the Captiva 7 range but as a five-seater.
Captiva 5 will be powered by a 2.4 litre four cylinder engine and will compete directly against Toyota Rav4, Nissan X-Trail and Honda CRV.
Available as a 2WD with manual transmission or an AWD with automatic transmission, both models boast a competitive feature list including:
• Driver and front passenger airbags
• Side curtain airbags
• Electronic Stability Control
• Traction Control
• 17″ alloy wheels
• Air conditioning
• 6 Disc CD player
• Cloth seat trim
• Leather wrap steering wheel
• Cruise control
• Front and Rear Park Assist
Holden Executive Director of Sales and Marketing, John Elsworth, said the introduction of the Captiva 5 meant Holden would better compete in the Compact SUV and Medium SUV segments.
“Captiva 5 is a compact SUV that will attract a different set of buyers than those who require the seven-seater,” Mr Elsworth said.
“It is sure to appeal to couples and families with its attractive European styling, well specified equipment level and competitive price point.”
The Captiva seven-seater range will continue with the SX, CX and LX models.
Holden Captiva is one of Australia’s favourite mid-size SUVs, outselling the Ford Territory with 6,998 vehicles sold year to date, accounting for 15.1 per cent of the competitive medium SUV market.
Captiva 5 will go on sale in early December with the following recommended retail prices:
• Captiva 5 2WD (manual) AUD$27,990
• Captiva 5 AWD (automatic) AUD$30,990
