The Opel Antara is a mid-size crossover SUV produced in South Korea by GM Daewoo, but sold under the Opel brand. Launched in 2007, the Antara is based on the GM Theta platform which shares its underpinnings and powertrains with the Daewoo Winstorm. However, it has a different exterior and interior design, along with different exterior dimensions. In the United Kingdom, the car is sold as the Vauxhall Antara. In Australia and New Zealand the car is known as the Holden Captiva MaXX, and in North America as the Saturn Vue. In the Middle East, the vehicle is sold as the GMC Terrain, and as the Chevrolet Captiva in Mexico..
The Antara was first previewed by the three-door Opel Antara GTC ("Gran Turismo Crossover") concept car, presented at the 2005 Frankfurt Motor Show. The Antara GTC is based on the five-seater Chevrolet T2X concept. A similar two-door concept was later displayed at the New York International Auto Show as the Saturn PreVue. The production Antara, is however a longer four-door seven-seater vehicle very similar to the Chevrolet S3X and its derivative Winstorm.
