Holden Captiva engine options provide improved performance and fuel economy

The new Series II, Holden Captiva 5 and Captiva 7 models to include high-performing, new-generation gasoline and diesel engines.

Matched to smooth six-speed transmissions and exceptionally competitive pricing, there’s more power on tap across the Captiva range, complemented by fuel efficiency gains on all models.

According to the GM Holden Corporate Affairs news release, the seven-seat Captiva 7, for example, now offers three new powertrain options including a price-leading 2.4 liter four-cylinder petrol variant, a 2.2 liter turbo diesel and the Commodore-proven performance benefits of Holden’s advanced, Australian-built 3.0-litre Spark Ignition Direct Injection (SIDI) V6.

Captiva 5 buyers get the choice of a turbo diesel powerplant for the first time, while refinements to all Series II models deliver quieter cabins and improved ride and handling quality.

Holden Chairman and Managing Director, Mike Devereux, said updates to the Series II Captiva were intended to build on the strengths of an already successful model range in a growing market.
