Holden consolidated its Captiva 5 and Captiva 7 into a single model when it was updated at the start of 2016.
The new look for the South Korean-built wagon included a Chevrolet-style grille and front fascia that included LED daytime running lights for the first time.
The refreshed interior includes a new Commodore-style steering wheel with audio, phone and cruise control buttons, dispensing with the old Daewoo-style wheel that harked back to Epica.
Safety has been improved with the addition of blind spot alert and rear traffic warning on the top-of-the-range LTZ.
A “cleaner, more contemporary” infotainment panel gets GM’s latest MyLink technology including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a rear view camera as standard.
The Captiva came with three engine configurations – a 2.4-litre, naturally-aspirated 123kW/230Nm four cylinder, a 2.2-litre, 135kW/400Nm turbo-diesel four cylinder and a 3.0-litre, 190kW/288Nm V6.
