Holden has cut $2500 from every variant in updated Captiva 7 range, lowering the entry price to $29,990 before on-road costs. It has also trimmed $2000 from the base version of the Captiva 5, which now starts at $25,990, and $1800 from all other grades.
The Captiva 7 SX, CX and LX trim levels have been renamed LS, LT and LTZ, bringing them into line with the naming structure of the Captiva 5, Trax and Colorado and Colorado 7 models.
The 2014 Holden Captiva 7 features a redesigned grille, new front and rear bumpers, LED tail-lights, and revised chrome exhaust tips.
All Captiva 7 grades gain smart key technology with push-button start, while the LT and LTZ add integrated side steps. The LT also gets new 18-inch alloy wheels.
The Holden Captiva 5 LT likewise benefits from a new 18-inch alloy wheel design, while the LTZ adds chrome exterior door handles.
The revised pricing makes the Captiva 7 the only seven-seat SUV available for under $30,000, and one of the cheapest seven-seaters of any kind on the market, while the mid-sized Captiva 5 now starts just $2500 above its sub-compact Trax sibling.
