NEW CAPTIVA EQUIPE ENHANCES VALUE PROPOSITION OF TOP SELLING SEVEN-SEAT MODEL

NEW CAPTIVA EQUIPE ENHANCES VALUE PROPOSITION OF TOP SELLING SEVEN-SEAT MODEL
 
The Holden Captiva, already one of the most popular seven-seat SUV models available for sale in New Zealand, has had its impressive aesthetic and specification credentials further enhanced with the release of a new special value package.
 
The limited production Captiva Equipe will officially go on sale this weekend, and expectations are high that the new model will find immediate appeal with customers thanks to its outstanding value proposition.
 
“With more than 1,000 new Captiva already sold this year, the arrival of the limited production model will strengthen the appeal of what is consistently one of the best-selling models not only in our range, but in the whole of the country,” said the Managing Director of Holden New Zealand, Kristian Aquilina.
 
“The seven-seat functionality is a key attribute which finds favour with many families, both large and small, while the five-star ANCAP rating provides further peace of mind.”
 
Adding to the safety story is a seven-inch multifunction colour touchscreen which provides exceptional resolution for the rear view camera and also doubles as a handy way to judge the distance when reversing to hitch up a trailer or boat.  ISOFIX child seat anchorage fixtures abound throughout the vehicle.
 
In terms of new technology, the Captiva Equipe also features the impressive Apple Carplay and Android Auto connectivity system, which makes it easier for drivers to stay connected when they’re in the car.  Additional cconvenience features include passive entry and start with sensor key, as well as an electric eight-way driver’s seat.
 
The recommended selling price of the 2.4-litre, four-cylinder Captiva Equipe is $35,990 plus on-road costs, which represents outstanding value as it comes loaded with extras such as factory fitted electric sunroof, 18” unique alloy wheels, roof rails and leather appointed seat trim.  Front fog lamps complete the exterior appearance.
 
As with every new Holden purchased at an authorised dealer around New Zealand, the new Captiva Equipe comes standard with a three-year warranty as well as Holden Roadside Assistance.
 
“It’s measures such as these which further enhance the overall value equation when it comes to buying any new Holden model from our extensive range,” said Mr Aquilina.
 
The new Captiva Equipe is available at authorised Holden dealerships around New Zealand from this weekend.
