EQUINOX ADDS DIESEL
HOLDEN HAS ADDED A DIESEL ENGINE TO THE MEDIUM-SIZE EQUINOX SUV. A 1.6-litre engine and six-speed auto combination produces 100kw/320nm and between 5.6-5.9l/100km across the three-model range. Pricing starts at $46,990 for the 2WD LT, $55,900 for the AWD LTZ, and $59,990 for the range-topping LTZ-V, a $3k premium over the petrol LTZ-V. We were very impressed by the petrol Equinox tested in the May/june 2018 issue, and though Holden claims 8.2l/100km, we saw 8.9l/100. The diesels improve that significantly.
