Starting next month, new Holden Cruze will offer added features and better performance thanks to the introduction of a new 132kW 1.6 litre turbo engine and locally developed sports suspension for SRi and SRi-V sports models.

Holden has added features across the entire model line-up while reducing the recommended retail pricing for the entire range.

A realigned model line-up sees the Equipe replace the entry level CD, adding front foglamps, sports grille, 17” alloy wheels and rear park assist as standard features to the most affordable Cruze model.

CDX gains additional premium features including keyless entry with push button start and a reverse camera. A reverse camera is also added to the range-topping SRi-V while the SRi sport model receives rear park assist as standard.

Holden Cruze becomes the first locally built car to go on sale with Holden MyLink, a new premium infotainment system.
 
Standard in every new Cruze model, the Holden MyLink system centres around a seven-inch colour touch-screen featuring intuitive controls that enable drivers to select audio and settings, connect a mobile device via Bluetooth (while stationary), view album artwork and customise their home screen preferences.

Holden MyLink in Cruze also uses embedded applications to allow drivers to safely access internet music station, Pandora and podcast radio station Stitcher through 3G streaming on their compatible mobile device.

The new 1.6 litre turbo engine, now standard in both SRi and SRi-V sport models, replaces the 1.4 litre turbo engine which remains an option on the Equipe. A new Australian calibrated second generation automatic transmission with Active Select replaces the outgoing automatic transmission across petrol models, promising improved drive quality.
