With sales of the Holden Cruze down 22 percent so far in 2014, Holden is introducing two new variants to its small car line-up in order to boost its value for money proposition.

Outsold by the Toyota Corolla, Mazda 3 and Hyundai i30, the fourth-ranking and locally-produced Holden Cruze will see the introduction of the Z-Series model sedan and SRi Z-Series sedan and hatch.

Holden-Cruze-Z-Series-2

The two Z-Series Cruze models will replace the Cruze CDX and SRi-V, bringing new features but maintaining the same pricing (see below).

Holden will also offer a manual version of the of the Cruze sedan in that price range for the first time (where the Cruze CDX sedan was previously available as an automatic only).

As per the CDX, the new Cruze Z-Series will be available with a 1.8-litre petrol or 2.0-litre diesel while the SRi Z-Series gets the popular 1.6-litre petrol turbo engine.

The Cruze Z-Series carries over the MyLink infotainment system with 7.0-inch colour touchscreen and Apple’s Siri integration, a reversing camera and parking sensors as well as leather-wrapped seats and push button start system.

Additional features of the Z-Series over the CDX are limited and include exterior Z-Series badges, unique darker 17-inch alloys, rear lip spoiler and new floor mats.
