VOTE 1 HSV
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.
