The Captiva was dressed for the occasion with livery depicting BB-8 by Sphero, the new robot set to make its debut in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, adorning the sides of the vehicle.
The Holden and Star Wars association has some die-hard fans in a tizzy. One couple we spoke to had driven six-hours from Tamworth, equally excited to see both the Captiva and Harrison Ford.
The front-end of the new Captiva has had a facelift, sporting a new grille, LED daytime running lights, and redesigned fog-light housing.
Minor changes to the exterior include body-coloured wheel arches and side-steps. The interior has been freshened up with a new steering wheel and revamped dash featuring gloss black and satin silver finishes while updates to Holden's MyLink infotainment system add Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality.
The Captiva 5 and Captiva 7 model names have been retired and consolidated, it'll now be known simply as the Captiva, available as a five or seven-seater.
It's been around for almost a decade, and Holden remains tight-lipped on what will replace the Captiva as Holden moves through the process of wrapping up Australian manufacturing and heading into unchartered territory as an importer only.
But that's a couple of years away yet. The 2016 Captiva is due to go on sale mid-late January. Pricing is yet to be announced but is not expected to differ greatly from current pricing.
