Australia’s next generation small sedan, the Holden Cruze Sri-V, combines comfort, style and sophistication. Featuring a sportier look and advanced technology, this car is set to raise the bar in the Australian sedan market. Thanks to General Motor’s expertise in automobile engineering and design, the Holden Cruze Sri-V is not just a small sedan – it is a certified Australian-made mini.
Offering new body styling and a better engine, the Holden Cruze Sri-V is set to redefine the small car driving experience. Check out the newest features and technology this small sedan has to offer below:
With the new Sri-V, Holden upped the ante by installing a turbo-charged 1.6-litre DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder petrol engine. Compared to its predecessor’s 1.4-litre engine, the new engine produces 132 kilowatts of power at 5,500 RPM. With 230 Newton-metres of torque, it has enough power to easily drive though the busy urban jungle or the open road. In addition, this new engine is also more responsive and fuel-efficient. Based on an ADR test: the Sri-V’s fuel economy was rated at 7.4-litres/100 kilometres.
Aside from its new turbo-charged engine, the Sri-V promises to energise every drive. Its Watts Link suspension gives this sedan a refined and sporty feel while driving. Since this new suspension provides lateral support to the car’s rear axle, it makes it easier for drivers to drive through road bends. Its tighter directional control and rear wheel steering allows for a better driving experience.
The Sri-V also features a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission. Drivers opting for the manual transmission will experience better launches from first gear and lower revs when in higher gears. On the other hand, the automatic transmission optimises the engine’s performance through its Active Select option. With a touch of a button, drivers can switch between automatic and manual gear shifting to address any driving condition.
Road safety is Holden’s motto. The company is serious about it and incorporated modern safety features on the Sri-V. Some of these include 4-wheel disc brakes with an Antilock Braking System or ABS. Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, Brake Assist and Traction Control are also some of the assistive technologies included on this sedan.
The Sri-V also features six airbags and a reinforced passenger safety cell which provides maximum protection for both driver and passenger during a collision. Given these safety features, the Holden Cruze Sri-V earned a 5-star ANCAP safety making, proving that safety will always be Holden’s top priority.
Interior and exterior features
Vibrant body styles and colours, 18-inch alloy wheels, side mirrors with integrated turn signal lamps, Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) and a distinct front end gives the Holden Sri-V a sportier stance. Its interior gives its driver and passengers a taste of luxury. From the Sri-V’s leather-appointed interior to its satellite navigation, this car lets the driver appreciate the feel of the wheel. Passengers can also enjoy the drive thanks to its 6-speaker MyLink infotainment system and electronic climate control. Both drivers and passengers can enjoy the big features this small car has to offer.
The Holden Cruze Sri-V is a true Australian small sedan. It is dynamic, elegant and the more you look at it, the more you will like it. It may be small but the Cruze Sri-V is big on style.
