2016 Holden Captiva 7 LTZ (AWD) Review

I traded my 2012 Prado on a new Captiva LTZ 2.2 diesel and I am glad I did. This SUV has way more gadgets than a $65 grand Prado has, it drives great, has heaps of grunt and fuel economy is around the same if not better. It also can tow the same and we only paid 38k. I think GM has got it right with this new model finally...

2016 Holden Captiva 7 Ltz (AWD) Review

Inside I cannot hear it, wind the windows down and it purrs. Economy? I am getting 8.9l 100kms. It has more than enough power...
