Holden shows off new 2011 Series II Captivas

The new Series II Captivas from Holden of Australia has just been unveiled ahead of their scheduled launch in the later part of 2011. The Captiva 7 features a new hood, an aggressive front fascia, and restyled lighting units. The cabin received a new instrument cluster, a revised center stack, and higher quality materials.

There are several packages available, with the top-of-the-line LX getting leather upholstery, GPS navigation, and a rear view camera.

Three new engines are available. The 2.4-liter four-cylinder delivers 123kW (165 hp / 167 PS), while the Commodore-sourced 3.0-liter SIDI V6 has an output of 190 kW (255 hp / 258 PS). A 2.2-liter diesel is also available; this develops 135 kW (181 hp / 184 PS).

The Captiva 5 features a modified front fascia, a revised grille, and 17-inch alloy wheels. The interior has been given additional sound deadening material, an electric park brake, and a multi-function trip computer.

Like its bigger sibling, the model can be powered by a 2.2-liter four-cylinder diesel that delivers 135 kW (181 hp / 184 PS) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque. For those who prefer to use petrol, Holden offers a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that generates 123 kW (165 hp / 167 PS) and 230 Nm (170 lb-ft) of torque.
