Tourer force

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Newcomers -

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.
