Holden will introduce Bluetooth as standard across the Australian-built Cruze sedan and soon to be released hatch range, enhancing the popular vehicle’s appeal even further.

The integrated feature, previously a $600* dealer fitted accessory, will be standard as part of a model year 2012 Cruze update on sale from mid-November.

Holden Director of Marketing, Simon Carr, said the addition of the technology was in response to consumer demand.

“Bluetooth has become an increasingly important feature for many motorists so it made sense to make it standard on Holden’s second best-selling car line,” Mr Carr said.

“Bluetooth is now standard across a number of Holden’s most popular car lines including Commodore, the all-new Barina and now Cruze.”

Year to date, the Holden Cruze is Australia’s third best selling passenger car.

Two new colours will be introduced in the model upgrade and will be available on all locally built cars.

Perfect Blue, a bright solid blue, will replace Voodoo, and Chlorophyll, a metallic teal, will replace Poison Ivy.

Mr Carr said minor price changes would accompany the upgrade but was pleased to confirm there would be no premium for the sporty hatch over the sedan range.

“The Cruze CD and CDX range’s recommended retail price will increase by just $250 while the SRi and SRi-V models will increase by $500 to take into account other new inclusions to be announced closer to launch,” he said.

“We’ve made a commitment that the Cruze range will continue to stand for outstanding value for money and when you take into account the amount of standard features and its five star safety credentials, it’s hard to argue.”
