The latest sibling in the Cruze family joins the locally-built Hatch and Sedan and shares all the same family characteristics: highly specified, flexible, safe and stylish.
Cruze Sportwagon will be available in two models, CD with the choice of two engines, a 1.8 litre petrol engine or a 2.0 litre turbo diesel, or the premium CDX with a 1.8 litre petrol engine.
The entire range boasts generous load space, Bluetooth® connectivity with voice recognition, cruise control and iPod® integration with steering wheel controls as standard.
The versatile Cruze Sportwagon offers the same safety features and robust body structure that earned the Cruze sedan and hatch a five star safety rating from the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP). Safety features include six airbags, rear park assist and electronic stability control including anti-lock braking system and traction control.
Philip Brook, Holden's Executive Director of Sales and Marketing, said the imported model is a fantastic opportunity to reach new customers.
"The beauty of the Cruze Sportwagon is that it offers all the style and high-tech features of the popular Hatch and Sedan, but also offers an added level of versatility for those customers looking for the practicality of a wagon," he said.
"The Cruze has been an instant Aussie favourite since going on sale and the Sportwagon complements the range perfectly.
"This nameplate has sold in excess of one and a half million vehicles globally since it was launched in 2009 and there's a very simple reason for this – it's a fantastic car.
"We're really excited about competing in the small wagon segment again. Cruze Sportwagon is a compelling offer so I'm pleased once again to offer a great car for these buyers.
"This wagon is the perfect addition to the Cruze range and like the Commodore Sportwagon before it; it will put excitement back into this traditionally conservative segment."
