Holden adds to its Cruze line-up


Holden will add a highly specified CDX diesel to its Cruze range

A CDX diesel in manual and automatic transmissions will join the CD diesel, CD and CDX petrol models in early 2010.

Holden’s Executive Director Sales and Marketing, John Elsworth, said the new diesel variant was a response to customer demand.

“Since we launched in June, Cruze has really struck a chord with motorists, selling over 6,144 units to date and market feedback has been overwhelmingly positive,” Elsworth said.

“Diesel is proving a popular alternative so it made sense to introduce a new model that offers the best of both worlds."

Cruze CDX diesel will offer the same specification as the petrol variant with the addition of a tyre inflator kit. A spare wheel will be available as a no cost option.

Features include:

  • Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
  • Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)
  • Six airbags
  • 17 inch alloy wheels (4)
  • Cruise control
  • Leather steering wheel
  • Leather appointed seats with heated front seats
  • Rear parking sensors
  • Steering wheel audio and cruise controls
  • Trip computer
  • Power windows, front and rear
  • Automatic headlamps Fuel Economy

Official combined fuel economy figures (ADR81/02) for the new models are:

  • CDX Diesel (manual) 5.7l/100km
  • CDX Diesel (auto) 6.9l/100km

The new Cruze CDX diesel model will be on Australian roads in early 2010, with no word yet on a NZ release.
