A zed and fewer noughts

Holden’s Z range gets more kit but a sweeter price

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Car News -

black bezels on head­lights, Z-Se­ries ex­ter­nal badg­ing and car­pet floor mats, boot lid lip spoiler on the sedan and a cargo blind for the wagon.

Prices start from $37,990 for the en­try-level petrol Z, or $2000 be­low the reg­u­lar Omega, and $40,490 for an LPG ver­sion. Sport­wagon ver­sions add $2000.

Holden ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of sales, mar­ket­ing and af­ter­sales John Elsworth makes vast claims for the spe­cial edi­tions.

‘‘ Never be­fore have we put to­gether such an ex­cit­ing range that not only looks fan­tas­tic but is so fea­ture-packed, mak­ing it out­stand­ing value,’’ he says.

‘‘ For any­one in the mar­ket for a large sedan, fam­ily Sport­wagon or a great Aussie ute, there’s re­ally never been a bet­ter time to buy a Holden.’’

Sports mod­els start with the SV6 and SS Z-Se­ries, which sticks with the cur­rent price tag but adds 19-inch al­loys to the en­try-level Z range equip­ment list (though the LPG SV6 keeps 18-inch al­loys).

The SV6 Z-Se­ries sedan starts from $42,790 for the man­ual, $43,790 for the au­to­matic or $46,290 for the LPG au­to­matic; the auto wagon vari­ant adds $2000.

Ute buy­ers can get into the Z-Se­ries in the SV6. Petrol mod­els start from $38,490 for the man­ual or $39,490 for the au­to­matic petrol model and LPG adds $2000.

The V8-pow­ered SS Z-Se­ries mod­els don’t in­crease over the stan­dard SS —man­ual sedans start from $47,790, wag­ons $49,790 and utes from $42,490. Au­to­mat­ics add $2000.

The SS V Z-Se­ries also adds 19-inch­ers but gets the Red­line edition’s forged al­loy wheels, front Brembo brakes and FE3 sports sus­pen­sion. The sedan also gets a sun roof. SS V buy­ers opt­ing for the Z-Se­ries pay no more ei­ther— the man­ual sedan starts from $55,290, adding $2000 for the au­to­matic.

The man­ual ute is priced from $47,490 and man­ual wagon from $57,290.

Holden is in­tro­duc­ing a new colour to the large pas­sen­ger car range, ‘‘ Alchemy’’ pur­ple; it re­places the metal­lic gold Mi­rage Glow.
