The 2011 Captiva 7 gets the most obvious updates of the pair, its new face previewed by the unveiling of the refreshed Chevrolet Captiva in September last year.

On the styling front, the Captiva 7 features a new headlight design similar to the coming 2011 Barina, along with a new twin-port grille, a re-sculptured bonnet and more prominent foglights.

Turn signals are now integrated into the wing mirrors, and a range of new wheel designs are featured, including 17-inch alloys for the SX, 18-inch alloys for the CX and 19-inch alloys for the LX.

Inside, the Captiva 7 gets an electric park brake, doing away with the hand brake lever and creating space for a new multi-purpose storage compartment.

Features for the entry-level LX include Bluetooth connectivity, air-conditioning, cruise control and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

The CX gets climate control, a driver information display, Sportec seat bolsters and Rear Park Assist, while the top-shelf LX gains leather seats and a seven-inch touch screen with satellite navigation, rear view camera and USB connectivity.

The Series II Captiva 7 is powered by three engine options, depending on the model grade.

The entry SX is powered by a 123kW/230Nm 2.4 litre DOHC four-cylinder petrol engine, while the CX and LX can be had with either a 135kW/400Nm 2.2 litre four-cylinder turbodiesel, or the Commodore-powering 190kW 3.0 litre SIDI V6 petrol engine.

All three engines are paired to a six-speed automatic transmission.

Fuel economy for the 2.4 litre SX is listed at 9.1 l/100km. The 2.2 litre turbodiesel returns figures of 8.1 l/100km in 2WD form and 8.3 l/100km for AWD models, and the petrol V6 is listed at 11.3 l/100km.

Safety features include the addition of side impact airbags, bringing the total airbag count to six. Electronic Stability Control is also standard, incorporating ABS, electronic brakeforce distribution, brake assist, traction control, hill-start assist, descent control and active rollover protection.

The CX variant features rear park assist, and the LX also features a rear view camera.

    It's Daewoo - they're 5 years behind everyone else (at least) so no surprise about the crappy tail lights or bland styling especially on the Captiva 5.

    FFS, it doesn't have a single drop of Daewoo in it. It's built on a US engineered platform (same one the Suzuki XL7 was built on). The Captiva 5 was styled by Opel in Germany, so blame them for being behind the times, and the damned things are built all over the world. We just happen to get ours from GM's new, state-of-the-art production line in Incheon. In Sth Korea it wears both Chevrolet and Daewoo branding, but that means nothing because the Holden Caprice also wears Daewoo badges over there. Daewoo never had an SUV.

      Nah sorry but you are wrong. This IS another product of (the now renamed) GM DAT. Styled and engineered.

      Never understand why the fanboys feel need to make sh!t up to hide the origins of Holden's offerings.

      Next you'll be telling us that we'll hav an Aussie 'made' Cruze soon - pity it will still be over 75% imported parts from Korea and China. Local content will pretty much be limited to panel stampings for the unique Australian model look (inc. hatch).
