Holden Equinox (Captiva replacement) previewed

Holden Equinox (Captiva replacement) previewedWhile taking a step forward from the Captiva wasn’t going to be overly taxing, kicking on and levelling with cars like the Mazda CX-5, the Hyundai Tucson, and the Kia Sportage is a more challenging brief. We had the chance to drive a pre-production prototype to get an early taste of what’s on offer.

The 2018 Holden Acadia and 2018 Holden Equinox are prepared to remedy the brand’s lack of utility vehicles, however, and Holden recently gave local journalists a go in the upcoming vehicles. Per the brand, each passed challenging terrains and typical Australian conditioning tests with flying colors after the softer, floatier American tuning was done away with.

The range will open with a 1.5-litre turbo, delivering 127kW and 275Nm, combined with either a six-speed manual or automatic and the option of either front- or all-wheel drive. Fans of oil-burners can benefit from a 100kW/320Nm 1.6-litre turbo-diesel option.

Holden’s engineers are currently going through the localisation tuning of the Acadia’s suspension, steering and powertrain. Acadia marks a new achievement for Holden’s engineering operation, as it is the first import to be tuned with active dampers, which are fitted to the top-spec models.
