Two engine choices will be available for the UK market, both all-new 2.2-litre diesel units developing either 163PS or 184PS. The former willbe offered with a six-speed manual gearbox, while the latter will have achoice of manual or auto both six-speed. All LT and LTZ models, which will be the mainstay of the range, come with on-demand All-Wheel-Drive and seven seats as standard, where many of their rivals can only offer five seats.
The range kicks off with the entry-level LS. Available with the 163PSengine only, the five-seat LS still has a raft of standard equipment often found only in much more expensive models. As well as the ESC, Bluetooth, speed sensitive power steering and folding mirrors, the front-wheel-drive model gets a six-speaker CD system with MP3 compatibility, an eight-way adjustable driver’s seat, a two-piece glass flip tailgate, a rain-sensor rear wiper, Thatcham Category 1 alarm and immobiliser with two-stage remote central locking, roof rails, 17-inch alloys, air conditioning, a trailer provision wiring harness and electric windows all round.

TheLT also gets the 184 PS engine, with a choice of six-speed manual or automatic transmission.
The pride of the new Captiva range is the LTZ, which comes with features more commonly seen on SUVs costing almost twice as much. Full leather trim, sat nav, a rear-view reversing camera, power-adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats, stainless steel sill plates, 19-inch alloys, dark taillight lenses, privacy glass and headlamp pressure washers are offered on top of the LT’s already generous package of specification.
What’s more, the new Captiva range offers some of the best CO2figures in class when it comes to full-size seven-seat SUVs. The 163PS model puts out 170g/km, while the 184PS manual variant emits 174g/km, putting both in the 26 per cent BIK band. Combined fuel economy for the 163PS engine is 44.1 mpg, and for the 184PS engine 42.8mpg – both representing a significant improvement over the outgoing 150PS powerplant.
