Holden has announced the addition of two new turbocharged sports models to the Australian-built 2011 Series II Cruze Sedan range, the SRi and SRi-V.

With more power, more torque, upgraded suspension and sportier styling, the Cruze SRi and SRi-V sit at the top of the local Cruze sedan range.

Styling

The new sports-focused SRi and range-topping SRi-V models bring significant styling changes to the basic Cruze shape, including unique front and rear treatments.

Up front, the sports models get an SRi-badged grille and a unique front bumper, while a rear lip spoiler, new rear bumper, sideskirts and 17-inch alloy wheels round out the rest of the exterior enhancements.

Interior

Inside, the Cruze SRi has a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, along with blue cloth trim for cars painted in Voodoo or Karma colour schemes.

The SRI-V adds leather-appointed seats and an integrated satellite navigation unit. A push-button starter is also mounted to the dashboard, left of the steering column.

Equipment

Standard equipment for the Cruze SRi includes power windows, air conditioning, auto-on headlamps and front foglamps.

The SRi-V variant adds heated front seats, keyless entry and ignition and rear parking sensors, plus a seven-inch LCD display with satellite navigation, DVD player, CD player and an internal 10GB hard drive for music storage.

Standard safety features:

  • Six airbags – front driver and passenger, front side impact, side curtain
  • Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
  • Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)
  • Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD)
  • Traction Control
  • Brake Assist
  • Collapsible pedal assembly system

Mechanical

Both the SRi and SRi-V are powered by the same all-new 1.4 litre turbocharged inline four. The engine produces 103kW at 4900rpm, and 200Nm of torque between 1850 and 4900rpm.

A new six-speed manual or six-speed tiptronic automatic are available with the 1.4 litre turbo engine, and all turbo Cruze models get electronic power steering as standard.

A Watts link has also been added to the rear torsion beam suspension, improving suspension geometry and promoting more stable handling.

Fuel economy is a claimed 6.4 l/100km for the 1.4 iTi manual, and 6.9 l/100km for the 1.4 iTi automatic.

Pricing

The Cruze SRi goes on sale in late March with a retail price of $24,490 for the manual and $26,490 for the automatic.

The range-topping SRi-V costs $27,990 with a manual transmission, and $29,990 with an automatic.

Prestige paint is a $500 extra.
