Holden Captiva 5 (Series 2)

Holden Captiva 5

5 Pros

  1. Not that bad a design considering it is a Holden built in Korea
  2. The Captiva 5 has a 5 out of 5 star ANCAP safety rating (and we love the number 5)
  3.  Some nice standard equipment like hill hold assist (to stop you rolling down hills) and front and rear parking sensors (although we would prefer a camera) but it is close to the same price as the Volkswagen Tiguan and Skoda Yeti
  4. Capped price servicing
  5. Pretty roomy interior (although the boot is a bit tight)

5 Cons

  1. Poor fuel efficiency, especially when compared to the market leading Mazda CX-5
  2. Slow in a straight line, slow around corners and vague steering make the Captiva 5 a pretty uneventful drive
  3. Poor ride quality occasionally makes it a pretty uncomfortable drive as well
  4. Gearbox can be awkward
  5. Some questionable ergonomics and an outdated interior (the model was introduced in 2006)

Concluding personality: American Idol auditions: More bad than good
