- Air conditioning

Captiva 5 will go on sale in December and will compete with Toyota Rav4, Nissan X-Trail and Honda CRV. Captiva 5 2WD with manual transmission will be priced at $27,990 while the AWD version with an automatic gearbox will cost $30,990.
Holden says the Captiva is the most popular mid-size SUV in Australia, with sales above those of Ford's Territory which comes the second in terms of new car sales. According to the Australian carmaker, the company sold 6,998 vehicles year to date, accounting for 15.1 per cent of the competitive medium SUV market.
