Holden has introduced the 2016 Cruze Z-Series and the Cruze SRi-Z.
Set to go on sale in Australia on January 22th, the models feature a number of sporty styling cues.
First up, the Cruze Z-Series has a rear spoiler and 17-inch alloy wheels with a two-tone finish. The model has also been equipped with special door sill plates, "Z-Series" floor mats, and Z-Series badging.
The Cruze SRi-Z is largely identical but it has 18-inch alloy wheels with a "satin medium android" finish. The model also has alloy pedals, door sill plates, and special floor mats.
Both models come nicely equipped with leather seats, a push-button ignition, and a rearview camera. Buyers will also find a MyLink infotainment system with a seven-inch touchscreen display.
In terms of performance, the Cruze Z-Series is equipped with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 139 horsepower and 129 pound-feet of torque. Moving up to the Cruze SRi-Z rewards buyers with a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 177 hp and 169 lb-ft of torque.
Besides introducing the new Z variants, Holden announced the 2016 Cruze will be offered with a new Slipstream Blue paint job. The company also revealed the Cruze Equipe will come with restyled 17-inch alloy wheels.
