THE FIVE-SEATER Holden Captiva is set to make its return to the Captiva line-up in early December, Holden has announced today.
Originally available in both five- and seven-seat variants, the Captiva range switched to an exclusively seven-seat layout earlier this year.
Now, to better compete with the Toyota Rav4, Nissan X-Trail and Honda CRV, the five-seater is on the way back.
?Captiva 5 is a compact SUV that will attract a different set of buyers than those who require the seven-seater,? Holden Executive Director of Sales and Marketing, John 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 5, like the Captiva 7, will be offered as a 2WD model paired with a five-speed manual transmission, or in AWD form with a five-speed automatic transmission.
Both models will offer the same features as the Captiva 7, including driver and front passenger airbags, side curtain airbags, Electronic Stability Control and Traction control.
Air conditioning, 17-inch alloy wheels, cruise control and Front and Rear Park Assist are among the Captiva 5's features.
The Holden Captiva seven-seater range will continue to be offered, available in SX, CX and LX trim.
- Captiva 5 2WD (Manual) - $27,990
- Captiva 5 AWD (Automatic) - $30,990
