Holden Cruze gets a refresh for 2011


Holden has launched its new Aussie-built Cruze range, updated with more powerful and efficient engines and fresh styling

Holden has unveiled its new Series II Cruze sedan range, that includes the most fuel-efficient car built in Australia.

Two new sports models, Cruze SRi and range topping Cruze SRi-V, join the line-up alongside the Cruze CDX and Cruze CD, which will all be available in late April.

The range boasts an all-new 1.4-litre intelligent turbo induction (1.4 iTi) petrol engine with variable valve timing which returns claimed fuel economy of 6.4L/100km on manual models. The four-cylinder produces peak power of 103kW at 4900rpm and peak torque of 200Nm between 1850-4900rpm

Meanwhile, the 1.8-litre DOHC powerplant delivers reported fuel economy of 7L/100km. The 16-valve four-cylinder produces 104kW of power at 6200rpm and develops 176Nm of torque at 3800rpm.

A new generation 2.0-litre DOHC common rail turbo diesel engine is optional on Cruze CD and CDX. Power output increases by 9% and torque is up by 12.5% compared with the previous model. The 2.0 litre turbo diesel now produces 120kW at 3800rpm and 360Nm at 1750rpm. Fuel economy improves to a frugal 6.7L/100km with six-speed auto.

New-look styling includes new wheel designs, new headlamps with bright jewelled bezels and new rear fascias. Cruze SRi and SRi-V models emphasise a sporty aesthetic with front and rear fascia treatments, aero decklid lip spoiler, sports rockers and 17-inch five-spoke alloy wheels.

The Cruze SRi-V comes complete with luxury innovations such as passive entry and start with Sensor Key technology, integrated satellite navigation with full colour widescreen display, and a premium multimedia audio/DVD system with 10GB hard drive. The system also has the ability to pause live radio for up to 20 minutes.

Series II Cruze boasts the highest possible five-star ANCAP safety rating.

There are 10 exterior finishes: Phantom Black, Alto Grey, Nitrate Silver, Karma, Mirage Glow, Voodoo, Poison Ivy, Sizzle, Heron White, Red Hot.
