Holden Cruze

Holden Cruze

1 Mar 2013

Holden tasked its engineers with producing a more dynamic drive for its Cruze sedan and hatch range in 2013, as a part of a mid-life refresh for the locally-built small car.

It didn’t look any different on the outside, but Holden engineers ‘localised’ transmissions, suspension, steering and throttle mapping across a development phase involving around 70,000km of testing. Holden also launched two new performance-focussed variants – the SRi and the turbocharged SRi-V – to add some much needed spice into the line-up.

More generous specification levels and a lower entry price ensured the 2013 iteration was the best Cruze yet.
