With Holden having a huge change within the company, it is exciting to see all the new models starting to come out. The 2017 Holden Cruze is no exception.
Coming as a sedan to run alongside the Holden Astra hatchback next year, the medium sized car market has a lot to look forward too. The US-market Cruze is powered by a 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine producing 113kW of power and 240Nm of torque. GM claims a 0-100km/h of around 8.0 seconds. Technology is another huge factor, coming with an 8″ MyLink touch screen and the all new 4.2″ instrument cluster display. To put the icing on the cake add in these safety features 10 airbags, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-keep assist and forward collision mitigation.
