Given our current obsession with SUV’s in Australia it’s no surprise Holden has another one in the pipeline.
Holden today announced the Trax light SUV will be here next year.
While full details are yet to be released here’s what we know so far…
- The Trax is based on the Chevrolet Trax which will be officially launched at the upcoming Paris Motor Show.
- The Trax will share many of the same underpinnings as the Barina.
- It will most likely be built in South Korea.
Holden’s Executive Director of Sales, Marketing and Aftersales, John Elsworth says the five-seater will offer buyers the convenience and room of an SUV, but also car like road manners.
“Trax will deliver the flexibility, great fuel economy, advanced safety features and car-like handling that more and more customers are looking for in today’s SUV’s.”
Holden Director of Powertrain Engineering, Simon Cassin said Holden engineers are working with their colleagues overseas to make sure the Trax is a success both here and globally.
“Holden is well recognised within the GM world for our expertise in engine and transmission calibration and we are very pleased to be involved in the development of this important vehicle.”
Pricing and features will be announced closer to next years official launch of the Trax in Australia.
