Motor (Australia) - - THE VENT -

In re­sponse to your re­view of the 2016 HSV Sen­a­tor Sig­na­ture, I thought you should be ad­vised that there a few ex­tra fea­tures that make it more up­mar­ket than the HSV Club­sport model. In ad­di­tion to the heated seats (stan­dard in the GTS by the way), the Sen­a­tor comes stan­dard with auto-dip­ping pas­sen­ger mir­rors when re­vers­ing, heated ex­te­rior mir­rors, and driver’s seat with three-po­si­tion mem­ory. I be­lieve that the MRC dampers alone are enough to jus­tify the in­crease of $10K over the Club­sport. I thought that the MRC Tour mode in the Sen­a­tor was softer, but I could be wrong.

I’m hop­ing that the GTS swan­song will be the LT4 rather than the LS9 given its age, and it would be great if HSV didn’t go over­board with the price – like they did with the 427 (which would see me down­grad­ing from the last GTS to the Sen­a­tor LSA). I did get a bit of ‘track’ time with the pad­dle shifters at the HSV Ice Drive Ex­pe­ri­ence af­ter which I’m al­most sold on the auto! Paul Hamil­ton, via email Thanks for the ex­tra info, Paul, the heated seats was a ma­jor brain fade, they are stan­dard in the GTS as you say. HSV as­sures us that the MRC cal­i­bra­tion is the same for both cars.
