Holden Kicks Off New Year With New Trax
New Trax introduced with fresh new styling and segment leading connectivity
Trax boasts Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and rear view camera as standard
1.4L turbo engine standard on automatic transmission across the range
Trax range extended to include new mid-variant LT model
Following its reveal in 2016, the new Holden Trax goes on sale this week, boasting fresh new styling and segment-leading state-of-the-art connectivity technology, ensuring Holden’s baby SUV continues to raise the bar.
Holden’s Executive Director – Sales, Peter Keley, said the new design and connectivity technology introduced on Trax would elevate the car to the business end of one of Australia’s most popular vehicle segments.
“With a 25% increase in sales, Trax resonated well with customers in 2016, and now with a stylish new design and advanced technology, there’s even more to like,” said Mr. Keley.
“We know that Trax customers live much of their lives through their smart phones, so it was important to us to ensure Apple CarPlay and Android Auto phone projection was available in Trax – the only vehicle to offer it in the small SUV segment.”
In addition to its class-leading Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, Trax boasts Rear Park Assist and Rear Camera across the range, while passive entry and push button start is introduced on the mid-level LT and top-of-the-range LTZ models.
Trax LS in automatic transmission also receives the same 1.4L turbo engine available in the LT and LTZ as standard, providing improved performance and fuel economy, as well as new rear disc brakes, giving drivers extra confidence.
Leveraging the new Chevrolet global design language, major styling enhancements to the new Trax includes new front and rear fascias, as well as striking LED daylight running lamps (DRLs) across the range.
Trax’s premium styling continues inside, with a fresh new console design including contrast trim detail and sweeping dash design all focused around the 7-inch colour touchscreen infotainment system.
Holden’s Design Director, Richard Ferlazzo, said the new-look Trax blended its already tough small SUV stance with a new modern, sophisticated design and represented a sign of things to come from Holden.
“The new Trax is the latest model to be released in Holden’s new product onslaught and with its advanced technology and premium design, is one I’m sure will continue to be popular with customers,” said Mr. Ferlazzo.
“Trax’s expressive sleek new profile hints at the rich materials and intricate styling inside, providing a refined and luxurious environment for drivers to enjoy their journey in.”
Trax joins Trailblazer in Holden’s refreshed SUV offering, with the recently revealed Acadia and Equinox soon to follow. Holden is the only brand to offer Lifetime Capped Price Serving, the largest of its kind in Australia, offering exceptional value and peace of mind to our customers.
