Holden has finally let the word out on the new Korean made Holden Epica. The mid-size sedan, Epica, will be priced from $25,990. The Epica which will go on sale in April 2007 come with a choice of either a 2.0 or 2.5-litre in-line six cylinder engine and a five-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission, depending on model.
An optional pack featuring leather trim with two colour options (CDXi only) will retail for $32,990. GM Holden Marketing Manager Medium Cars, Teresa Basile, said Epica’s sharp pricing represented outstanding value for money.
“Epica has very impressive standard specification, a refined ride, stylish fit and finish and generous interior space. We expect it to be a great alternative to vehicles currently in the mid-size sedan segment. Interest in Epica was very strong at the Brisbane International Motor Show with a high level of inquiries flowing through to dealerships.” Ms Basile said.
I do have to take up MS Basile’s claim that interest was high at the Brisbane International Motorshow, having stood there looking at the epica for a few minutes, lots of onlookers walked past with nothing more than just a glimpse, and the occasional “ah, the new vectra – oh no Epica… is that stil European?” Of course the answer is no, but Holden likes to keep that part rather quite.
