Pricing for the LS remains the same with entry to the Trax range starting from $23,990 before on-road costs for the manual and $26,490 when equipped with an automatic transmission.
The manual version of the LS remains powered by the old 1.8-litre petrol engine.
However, the automatic LS is powered by the same 103kW/200Nm 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine as found in the current LTZ Trax. The LS is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with power delivered to the front wheels.
Two all-new SUVs – the five-seat Equinox due late this year and the seven-seat Acadia due in early 2018 – will together replace the Captiva in Holden’s SUV range within 18 months.
Holden’s SUV family will grow to five by 2020, when an all-new premium mid-sizer based on Opel’s new Insignia, which forms the basis of the brand’s first imported Commodore next year, arrives Down Under.
