Holden Introduces 2WD Captiva with 2.0L Turbo Diesel Engine

Holden CpativaWhile four-wheel-drive systems have their strong points, we all know that a great percentage of SUV buyers don’t actually need AWD for their everyday driving chores. With this in mind, GM’s Australian subsidiary Holden announced the launch of a new choice of two-wheel-drive, diesel powered Captiva models. Powered by the 2.0 litre turbo diesel engine found in the Captiva AWD range, the manual transmission 2WD model offers a fuel efficiency of 7.2 litres / 100km (32.6MPG US) while the automatic returns 8.5 litres / 100km (27.7MPG US). -Continued

The Holden Captiva diesel 2WD models are priced from $33,990 AUD for the five-speed manual transmission and $35,990 AUD for the five-speed automatic transmission - or $2,000 AUD less than their AWD equivalents. Additionally, Holden is offering free side steps and roof mounted DVD player to any private customer who purchases a Captiva SX, CX or LX by 31 October 2008 or while stocks last.

The 2WD Captiva SX with automatic transmission is on sale now, with the manual transmission variant scheduled to be in dealerships late September.
