Holden Trax mini-SUV has reversing cam, 7-inch touchscreen standard

Holden has launched its mini-SUV, the Trax, at a very attractive A$23.5k price point with a 7-inch touchscreen, reversing camera and MyLink mobile apps compatibility as standard.


All Holden Trax models feature a 103kW/175Nm 1.8-litre petrol engine sending power to front wheels only; all-wheel drive isn’t an option. In official testing the Trax drinks 7L/100km in manual guise and 7.6L/100km as an auto.

The entry level LS is priced at A$23,490 and features a 5-speed manual transmission as standard; a 6-speed auto is a A$2,200 option. Fittings on the LS include 16-inch alloys, air-con, reverse parking sensors, automatic headlights, 6 airbags, traction and stability control, hill start assistance, leather steering wheel and daytime running lights. The audios system features a 7-inch display, reversing camera, Bluetooth for hands-free and streaming, iPod-compatible USB, AM/FM radio, and Siri Eyes Free mode. The audio system can also display and control smartphone music streaming apps, such as Pandora, Stitcher and TuneIn, as well as the BringGo navigation, via GM’s MyLink system.

The up-spec, and very Chevy-sounding, LTZ is priced at A$27,990. It features the 6-speed auto as standard, as well as 18-inch alloys, heated front seats, front fog lights, a storage tray under the front passenger’s seat and a multi-function trip computer.
