Car reviews - Holden - Statesman - V6 sedan
30 Jan 2002
STATESMAN is fitted with new stalk controls for indicator, wiper and cruise control functions. The cruise control is operated using a more intuitive twist switch mechanism, instead of the previous button system. Otherwise controls are basically the same as regular Commodores, supplemented with such features as variable intermittent road speed sensitive wipers. The Statesman also has automatic headlamps-on control at twilight, plus headlamps auto off after leaving the parked car. The trip computer in the Statesman includes average speed, odometer, average economy on a trip, elapsed trip time, trip distance and fuel used on the trip. It also shows distance to empty, remaining fuel, instant economy and time to go. Also standard is an audible and visual speed warning with four adjustable settings. A priority key for two people automatically restores, when unlocking the car, settings for climate control, sound system, trip computer, speed alert, transmission power/economy mode, instrument dimmer, antenna height and headlamps-off time delay.

Did you know?The Holden lion emblem appeared on all Holdens built from 1928 to 1939. Thereafter, the design was adopted as a trademark in all Holden advertising and, although modified, is still used on all Holden vehicles today
