Epica gets oiled up

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Newcomers -

HOLDEN has re­leased a diesel ver­sion of its Epica mid­sized sedan (top).

With arch ri­val Ford en­joy­ing praise for its diesel Mon­deo, Holden has joined the grow­ing list of mid­sized oil burn­ers.

The en­gine is a 2.0-litre tur­bod­iesel that pro­duces 110kW and 320Nm. It is paired with a sixspeed au­to­matic gear­box that is now an op­tion across the Epica petrol range.

Holden has also taken the op­por­tu­nity to im­prove other fea­tures across the range.

Elec­tronic sta­bil­ity con­trol and six airbags join the list of safety items that al­ready ran to trac­tion con­trol and anti-skid brakes.

Fuel econ­omy for the diesel is 7.6 litres/100km and 9.3 litres/ 100km for the 2.5-litre petrol en­gine.

Prices for the Epica range start at $27,990 for the CDX petrol and $29,990 for the CDX diesel.

The CDXi is priced from $ 30,990 for the petrol and $32,990 for the diesel.
