Holden has rolled out the variant that could help its small Holden Cruze knock off the Commodore as its top selling car next year.

It presented the Cruze wagon at the Australian International Motor Show today ahead of its arrival in showrooms in January, although held back on revealing the pricing.

While the Holden Cruze sedan and hatch are produced at the manufacturer’s Adelaide-based production line, the wagon is imported from South Korea.

The company says the more practical variant will be made available with either a 1.8-litre petrol four-cylinder or 2.0-litre turbo diesel four-cylinder engine. There is no plan to offer the wagon with the 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine available in sedan and hatch form.

The Cruze wagon will be standard with a six-speed automatic transmission and there will be no manual option.

Holden confirmed it will offer the wagon with two model grades including CD, available with both the petrol and diesel engines, and the CDX available with the petrol engine.

All Cruze wagons come standard with six airbags and electronic stability control, six airbags, 16-inch steel wheels, air conditioning, cruise control, Bluetooth phone connectivity, rear parking sensors and auto headlights and roof rails.

The CDX adds leather seats, 17-inch alloy wheels, chrome interior elements, heated front seats, climate control, front fog-lights and leather-wrapped steering wheel.
