13th August, 2014

  • Top of the range Trax introduced with a sporty 1.4 litre turbocharged engine
  • Trax LTZ with 1.4 litre iTi engine includes sunroof, new 18 inch alloys, rain sensing wipers and driver’s arm rest as standard
  • Trax LTZ 1.4 litre iTi priced from $29,990*
  • Trax LS priced from $23,990*

Holden Trax will cement its position as one of the best small SUVs on the road with the introduction of the new top of the range 1.4 litre Turbo LTZ model.

The refined 1.4 litre turbocharged engine option is coupled with a 6-speed automatic transmission with Active Select and a variety of new premium features that complement its award winning technology and bold design.

The LTZ with the new 1.4 litre turbo-charged engine will sit above the already popular and well performing 1.8 litre engine in the expanded Trax line-up, offering customers an option that provides even greater levels of refinement and responsiveness. The new engine boasts 103kW of power and 200Nm of torque, with a fuel economy rating of 6.9 litres per 100 kilometres.

Trax LTZ also benefits from an array of standard premium features, including rain sensing wipers, a driver’s arm rest and new 18 inch alloy wheels. A sunroof also comes standard with the 1.4 litre iTi option, further enhancing Trax’s reputation for providing outstanding customer value.

These new additions join the long list of standard features already found across the entire Trax range including a seven-inch touch-screen with MyLink embedded apps, rear view camera and Bluetooth™ phone and audio streaming.

Teresa Basile, Holden’s General Manager Marketing Communications, said Holden was committed to ensuring the fully-flexible Trax would continue to offer today’s drivers everything they are looking for in a small SUV, from multiple seating configurations to advanced technology features.

“In just 12 short months since its launch, Trax has established itself as a serious contender in this ever popular segment and we are very pleased with the success it has achieved to date,” said Ms Basile.

“Trax has received great traction in the market as well as plenty of positive reviews and we are committed to building on that success to ensure Trax continues to evolve and respond to customer needs.”

“In 2014 Trax is currently Holden’s fourth highest selling vehicle and we’re confident that with the introduction of the 1.4 turbocharged engine and new added extras, it will continue to appeal to a broad customer base ensuring continued success.”

The affordable and fuel efficient 1.8 litre engine will remain available on Trax, matched with a 5-speed manual or optional 6-speed automatic transmission, in both the LS and LTZ trim levels, with prices starting from just $23,990*.

Holden’s commitment to delivering excellent customer value extends beyond the purchase of Trax, with the most transparent Capped Price Servicing offer in the market. Trax owners receive complete peace of mind knowing that each of the four regular services in the first three years (or 60,000kms whichever comes first) will only cost $185^ – one of the lowest in the small SUV segment.

On sale later this month, Holden Trax is available in a wide range of exterior colour choices including the introduction of Blaze Red.

  • Blaze Red
  • Summit White
  • Snowflake Pearl#
  • Carbon Flash#
  • Boracay Blue#
  • Orange Rock#
  • Nitrate#
  • Satin Steel Grey#

Note: premium colours indicated with a # are optional. Premium paint is optional at $550*.
