Holden has rounded out its Cruze range this week with the addition of the new Sportwagon model, on sale in Australia in the coming weeks.
Priced from $25,790 (plus on-roads), the Cruze Sportwagon will join the sedan that launched in Australia in 2009, and the Hatch that went on sale in 2012.
Australian buyers got their first 'in the metal' look at the Sportwagon in October as part of Holden's stand at the Australian International Motor Show in Sydney.
The new model will be offered in the familiar CD and CDX trim grades, and depending on the model, engine options will include 1.8 litre petrol and 2.0 litre diesel mills.
“We’re really excited about competing in the small wagon segment again. Cruze Sportwagon is a compelling offer so I’m pleased once again to offer a great car for these buyers," Holden Sales boss Philip Brook said.
“This wagon is the perfect addition to the Cruze range and like the Commodore Sportwagon before it; it will put excitement back into this traditionally conservative segment.”
