HOLDEN has expanded its new Captiva SUV range by adding a responsive and economical turbo-powered variant.
Captiva Diesel’s 2.0-litre common rail turbo diesel engine produces 110 kilowatts of peak power at 4000rpm and 320 Newton metres of torque at 2000rpm. It complies with Euro IV emission standards.
Captiva Diesel will be available in a five-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission with Active Select, depending on model.
It is very fuel efficient, with the manual variant returning 7.6 litres per 100km and the automatic 8.7 litres per 100km (ADR081/01).
Carbon dioxide emissions are also reduced, with the manual producing 197 grams per kilometre – or 25 per cent less emissions than the equivalent petrol engine. A diesel particulate filter will be offered to further reduce the level of particulates present in exhaust gases.
The value-packed Captiva Diesel SX will retail at $34,990 for the manual transmission and $36,990 for the automatic transmission, an addition of only $2,000. Captiva Diesel CX and LX will retail at $39,990 and $42,990 respectively with automatic transmission.
This a $1000 premium for the diesel engine.
GM Holden Marketing Manager Large Cars and SUVs, Philip Brook, said Captiva Diesel offered a point of difference because few brands in the mid-size SUV market offered diesel variants.
“Captiva Diesel could become the mainstream vehicle for diesel compact and mid-size SUVs,” Mr Brook said.
“Captiva burst out of the blocks in the sales race and we believe the diesel variant will be very popular as well. It gives plenty of performance and economy along with outstanding value for money.”

An Active all-wheel drive system

Traction Control System
Hydraulic Brake Assist (HBA)
