The inbound, 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is truly going global. Not only will it show face in North America, but its D2XX underpinnings will also find likely find their way down under as a long overdue Holden Captiva replacement.
Holden most recently combined the Captiva 5 and Captiva 7 into one nameplate, as the brand moves from local production, to an import-only brand. Still, the Holden Captiva is old, and the 2018 Equinox will likely round out an onslaught of crossovers for the brand. The 2017 GMC Acadia is another likely contender to head to Holden, too.
These spy photos of the 2018 Equinox, seen here at Car Advice, show off the classic Chevrolet split grille, but the vehicle is in right-hand drive guise. GM’s thinking global with its platforms, with the D2XX architecture able to support drive configurations for either steering wheel side.
The 2018 Equinox will shrink over its current iteration now, leaving room for an all-new, midsize crossover to fill the vacant space.
