I’ve been a big fan of the Holden Cruze since it was released, so you could imagine I was a little excited to hear Holden had released details of the updated MY15 Cruze today.
Well lets just say I hope it looks better in the flesh as I’m not sure I really like it, going by what I’ve seen written today on lots of Holden forums I think there are few people that aren’t fans either.
Hopefully I will be reviewing it in the next month or so I will reserve my final judgement until I see it in the flesh up and close. I’ve been told by some American friends that it does look better in real life compared to the pics.
Thanks to Holden for the pics and info, check out all the details belong.
- Fresh look for popular Holden Cruze with bold new front
- Cruze also receives technology enhancements including Remote Start, Rain Sensing Wipers and LED Daytime Running Lights on certain models
- Interior upgraded to include suede seat inserts on selected models
Holden’s Cruze – the only small car built in Australia- has welcomed in the New Year with a range of appealing enhancements. Most notably, the Cruze has a fresh and bold, front fascia which, when combined with newly introduced LED Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) give it greater road presence and an ability to stand out from the crowd.
In the suite of upgrades the Cruze Equipe, winner of the RACV, RACQ and RAA Annual Running Costs Survey 2014*, benefits from new 17” alloy wheels and exterior mirrors with integrated turn signal lamps.
The performance-orientated Cruze SRi receives the same upgrades in addition to LED DRLs and fog lamps, whilst the even sportier SRi-V is kitted out with new 18” alloy wheels, rain sensing wipers and suede seat inserts. SRi-V also gets remote start functionality as available in VF Commodore, allowing customers to start the car remotely and use the air conditioning to cool, or heat the car before getting in.
Satellite navigation with voice command and live traffic updates is also introduced to the luxury-focused Cruze CDX sedan to round off a compelling refresh to an already popular range of vehicles.
Holden’s Director of Marketing, Bill Mott, said that the changes for 2015 demonstrated Holden’s ongoing commitment to producing technologically advanced, good looking and, above all, great value vehicles.
“The new front fascia and grille give the car an athletic, modern look and the added features make Cruze a compelling package in the small car class.,” Mr Mott said.
“With remote start, satellite navigation, reverse cameras and the award winning, MyLink infotainment system, Holden is able to offer technology not previously available in small cars. It is all part of our commitment to provide feature packed vehicles and exceptional customer value.”
The 2015 Holden Cruze goes on sale 20 January nationwide.
