We’ve known it was coming for a long time, but the all-new Holden Trax is about to hit showrooms.
Following a flurry of new vehicle launches from Holden, the Holden Trax is bringing a different angle. It aims to bring sporty and sophisticated styling features, and a host of clever storage compartments to meet the needs of small SUV buyers.
The Holden Trax, compared to its competitors seem that it has been designed with the market it is selling to in mind. That is, having good road height for visibility, having the ability to carry more than it was made for when moving between flats and apartments, and most importantly: avoiding a boring look.
On the outside, that look is achieved by a few subtle styling elements. Including the grille which also is very Holden like. Then there are the hood surface elements, LED brake lights and light pieces of chrome work to complete the look.
Stepping inside and you’ll be met with the Holden MyLink infotainment system, which is a 7-inch colour touch-screen. The speedo cluster, to us, is a slightly more refined version of the cluster found in the Holden Barina – which functions extremely well.
The leather steering wheel is welcomed and will feel great to touch and will allow for drivers to activate the cruise control, Bluetooth and Siri Eyes Free mode.
Standard throughout the range is a few nice features including a 5-Star ANCAP rating, 6 airbags, rear view camera, rear parking sensors, auto headlamps, and Bluetooth connectivity. Not bad for a low-mid $20k car/SUV!
The Holden Trax Models
There will two models available for the Holden Trax. The entry level Holden Trax LS which is available in Manual and Automatic which are priced from $23,490 and $25,690 respectively.
The range topping model will be the Holden Trax LTZ which is available in an auto only and it will be priced from $27,990. Until we can verify our thoughts in our upcoming review, our pick would be the LTZ. For a couple of grand (comparing auto’s) you receive larger 18” alloy wheels, heated front seats, front fog lamps, and a better looking Jet black Sportec trim.
The Holden Trax is available from dealerships in September and no doubt we’ll be seeing these on the road in no time.
