WHILE Holden is pushing economy and value, performance division HSV is pushing a wagon— its version of the recently released Holden Sportswagon, known as the ClubSport R8 Tourer (middle).
Unlike the all-wheel-drive Avalanche, the Tourer is based on the successful ClubSport R8 sedan. Most of the parts are carried straight over on to the Tourer, including the LS3 V8 engine producing 317kW and 550Nm.
The Tourer starts at $65,990 for the manual. The automatic gearbox is a $2330 option.
