New Holden SUV packed with technology
THE all-new Holden Trax small SUV will offer best-in-class technology, standout styling and outstanding fuel economy when it goes on sale across Australia next month.
The Holden Trax is set to arrive at Crossley’s Holden in Proserpine in early September.
Growing Holden’s SUV line up to four models, Trax will be offered in two trim levels, the LS and LTZ, ranging in price from $23,490 to $27,990.
Every Trax model will feature as standard on every model, a seven-inch touch-screen with MyLink embedded apps, rear view camera, rear parking sensors, six airbags and Bluetooth phone and audio streaming.
Trax features the same fuel efficient 1.8 litre DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder petrol engine as the Holden Cruze and is paired with a five speed manual transmission (LS only) to deliver fuel economy of just 7.0 litres per 100 kilometres.
A Gen II six-speed automatic transmission with Active Select is standard on the LTZ and available as an option on the LS, delivering a very competitive fuel consumption of 7.6 litres per 100 kilometres.
Holden executive director, sales and marketing, Philip Brook said that Trax was arriving in Australia at the right time to make the most of accelerating interest in small SUVs.
“The SUV segment continues to grow rapidly with small SUV sales growing 20 per cent this year.
“Trax offers a great package at an exceptional price point and we believe it will pose an immediate challenge to established models when it arrives in Holden dealerships in September.
“None of the best-selling vehicles in this segment currently offer the same features for this price.”
Trax has been designed to be fully-flexible, offering today’s driver everything they are looking for in a small SUV from multiple seating configurations to advanced technology features.
“The product development team has thought of everything in the creation of Trax. We’ve included a standard rear view camera and rear parking sensors across the range,”Mr Brook said.
