HSV is giv­ing the peo­ple what they want. More utes.

With ute sales con­tin­u­ing to soar in a strug­gling new car mar­ket, HSV has added a third ver­sion to its Colorado Sportscat range.

The new Sportscat “Look Pack” sits be­tween the en­try-level Sportscat and the top-shelf Sportscat+.

HSV has loaded it up with a range of top-spec gear as its tries to bridge the gap be­tween the two ear­lier re­leases.

Look Pack adds the ex­te­rior touches of the Sportscat+ in­clud­ing the grille, fender flares, hard ton­neau and 18-inch al­loy wheels.

It also gets the ride height and all-ter­rain tyres of the Sportscat+ along with premium in­te­rior kit in­clud­ing leather and suede sport seats.

The Look Pack is priced from $62,490 be­fore on-roads. Au­to­matic trans­mis­sion adds $2200.

Pro­duc­tion has be­gun on what HSV boss Tim Jack­son be­lieves will add flex­i­bil­ity to the range.

“The rugged styling cues of the Sportscat+ have been ex­cep­tion­ally well re­ceived by cus­tomers and HSV deal­ers alike,” says Jack­son.

“The in­tro­duc­tion of the Look Pack now pro­vides buy­ers with three dis­tinc­tive Sportscat spec­i­fi­ca­tion and pric­ing al­ter­na­tives to suit work and life­style re­quire­ments,” he says.

The Sportscats are pow­ered by a 2.8-litre turbo diesel (147kW/500Nm) that drives all four wheels.
