Holden has introduced the facelifted Captiva in Australia.

Set to go on sale next year, the 2016 Captiva will replace both the Captiva 5 and Captiva 7.  The model is based on the latter variant and features a new front fascia with a revised grille and restyled headlights with integrated LED daytime running lights.

The déjà vu design continues in the cabin but there's a revised center stack and a new MyLink infotainment system with seven-inch display as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.  The model also has a standard rearview camera and a five or seven seat configuration.

On the safety front, the crossover offers an assortment of features including Park Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Side Blind Zone Alert - just to name a few.

Under the hood, the Captiva will be offered with a variety of powertrains that have "already proved popular with customers."  The company declined to elaborate but the statement suggests the model with be offered with three carryover engines including:

  • A 2.4-liter four-cylinder petrol with 165 bhp (123 kW) and 169 lb-ft (230 Nm) of torque
  • A 3.0-liter V6 engine with 255 bhp (190 kW) and 212 lb-ft (288 Nm) of torque
  • A 2.2-liter four-cylinder turbo diesel engine with 181 bhp (135 kW) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque
