HOLDEN has introduced the first of a number special-edition Cruze variants that it hopes will keep buyers interested in the locally made model up until the end of manufacturing in 2017.

Australia will continue to sell the old version of the Cruze despite a new iteration of the small car going on sale overseas late this year or potentially during next year.

Similar to what it has done with the limited-run Storm version of the Holden Commodore announced last week, Holden has announced the Z-Series line-up that will temporarily replace the CDX and SRi-V-badged variants in the Cruze range.

As part of the change, which sees the sedan-based Z-Series version of the CDX price stay at $24,190 before on-road costs for fitted with a 1.8-litre petrol engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, Holden also introduces a cheaper six-speed manual version that knocks $2200 from the price to start from $21,990.

The Z-Series will also be available with a 2.0-litre diesel engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and priced from $28,190.

Equipment changes include different-look 17-inch alloys, a rear lip spoiler and “Z-Series” badges, sill plates and bespoke floor mats. Standard equipment includes Holden’s MyLink infotainment system sitting behind a seven-inch touchscreen, heated leather trim seats, keyless start and reversing camera with rear parking sensors.

While the CDX-based Z-Series is only available as a sedan, Holden will offer the SRi-V-replacing SRi Z-Series fitted with a punchy turbocharged 1.4-litre engine as both a sedan and hatchback.

Priced from $26,490 for the six-speed manual version, the list of features on top of the CDX-based Z-Series for the range-topping Cruze adds different 18-inch alloys, alloy pedal covers and a rear-lip spoiler on the hatch on top of standard equipment that includes satellite navigation, a much more sporty Watts link rear suspension and a more aerodynamically honed body kit.

Adding the six-speed automatic to the options list again bumps up the price by $2200 to $28,690.

Holden is offering both Z-Series variants with sharp drive-away pricing during May, or until stocks run out.

Holden executive director of corporate affairs George Svigos said last week that Holden’s expectation that the Cruze sedan and hatch would remain in local production until late 2017 remained unchanged, however, a challenge for the brand would be keeping buyers interested in the model.

He said the brand would be rolling out a number of special-edition variants for both the Commodore large car and Cruze sedan and hatchback between now and 2017.
