The all-new Holden Trax small SUV offers technology, stand-out styling and good fuel economy.

It's on sale now across Australia, not as a four-wheel drive but solely as a front-wheel drive SUV.

Trax is offered in two trim levels, the LS and LTZ, ranging in price from $23,490* to $27,990*.

Every Trax model will feature as standard, a seven-inch touch-screen with MyLink embedded apps, rear view camera, rear parking sensors, six airbags and Bluetooth™ phone and audio streaming.

Trax features the same fuel efficient 1.8 litre DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder petrol engine as the Holden Cruze and is paired with a five speed manual transmission (LS only) to deliver fuel economy of just 7.0 litres per 100 kilometres (combined cycle).

A Gen II six-speed automatic transmission with Active Select is standard on the LTZ and available as an option on the LS, delivering very competitive fuel consumption of 7.6 litres per 100 kilometres (combined cycle).

Holden Executive Director, Sales and Marketing, Philip Brook said that Trax was arriving in Australia at the right time to make the most of accelerating interest in small SUVs.

“The SUV segment continues to grow rapidly with small SUV sales growing 20 per cent this year.”

“Trax offers a great package at an exceptional price point.”

“None of the best-selling vehicles in this segment currently offer the same features for this price.”

Trax has been designed to be fully-flexible, offering today’s driver everything they are looking for in a small SUV from multiple seating configurations to advanced technology features. It is the only vehicle in the class to include a 240V electrical socket in the rear of the centre console to charge items like laptops while on the road.

“The product development team has thought of everything in the creation of Trax.”

“We’ve included a standard rear view camera and rear parking sensors across the range. Our MyLink system offers access to the widest range of apps currently available in an Australian vehicle, including BringGo, an exceptional low-cost navigation option with functions that include Google™ places search.” said Philip Brook.

In addition to the rear view camera and rear parking sensors, Holden Trax LS also features 16-inch alloy wheels, leather steering wheel with audio controls, Bluetooth™, cruise control and auto headlamps.

Trax LTZ adds 18-inch alloy wheels, Sportec seats, heated front seats, fog lamps, under passenger seat storage tray and trip computer. Trax LTZ is offered standard with the six-speed automatic transmission for a price* of $27,990*.

All engine and transmission calibrations for Holden Trax were completed locally by the engineering team at Holden’s Lang Lang Proving Ground. Additionally, a local suspension tune and electric power steering calibration ensures Holden Trax is at home on Australia’s challenging roads.
