Car reviews - Holden - Captiva - diesel 5-dr wagon range


Knockout pricing and competitive performance places Captiva among the SUV pigeons

9 Mar 2007

HOLDEN’S new-model steamroller is forging forward relentlessly, with the recently released Captiva V6 gaining a four-cylinder turbo-diesel sibling. Reeling from slow sales of its excellent Astra CDTi range, Holden is determined to make this diesel application sell, and has priced it so closely to the petrol-powered models that we beg the question: why would you bother with anything other than the diesel models?
Model release date: 1 March 2007 to 1 February 2011

Previous model

Holden Jackaroo diesel

Released: February 98
Ended: September 04
Family Tree: Captiva

HOW soon we forget. The Captiva isn’t Holden’s first mid-range SUV by a long shot, with the Japanese-sourced Isuzu Rodeo-derived Jackaroo springing into its dealers for almost 25 years from 1981. The final iteration, the U8 (derived from the second-generation L2 model of 1992), was surprisingly adept for a separate-chassis 4WD wagon, offering a mix of exceptional off-road capability and reasonable on-road refinement, especially after a series of improvements in 2001 that saw a four-speed auto join the five-speed manual for the gutsy, 118kW/333Nm 3.0-litre turbo-diesel editions.
