New Holden SUV packed with tech­nol­ogy

Whitsunday Times - - MOTORING -

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.

MAK­ING TRAX: The new Holden Trax small SUV of­fers best-in-class tech­nol­ogy and out­stand­ing fuel econ­omy and will go on sale across Aus­tralia next month.
