The Captiva is based on the same platform as other small General Motors CUVs such as the Pontiac Torrent
, Chevrolet Equinox
and Suzuki XL7
, but while the Stateside versions use GM's 3.6 liter V6, the Captiva is powered by a 4-cylinder diesel or a smaller Australian-sourced gasoline V6. The Captiva can be found in Europe, Latin America, and Asia; it's sold in Australia and New Zealand as the Holden Captiva.
