2016 Holden Cruze Z-Series on sale in Australia from $22,640

January 22, 2016

Due to popular demand, Holden is announcing the sporty Z-Series package for the 2016 Cruze range, adding styling enhancements across the board.

2016 Holden Cruze Z-Series

The Z-Series package is available on both the sedan and hatch versions of the Equipe and SRI-V, in both manual and auto forms. It coincides with the release of the 2016 update, which adds 17-inch alloy wheels for the base model, and introduces a new Slipstream Blue colour option.

For the regular Cruze Z-Series, customers receive unique 17-inch alloy wheels in a two-tone theme, a rear spoiler, special sill plates, leather seats, a rear-view camera, Z-Series floor mats in the front, and some Z-Series badges on the outside.

Stepping up to the SRi-V, which is called the SRI-Z with the new package, customers get 18-inch alloy wheels in Satin Medium Android colour, sports suspension, a bodykit and rear spoiler, alloy pedal covers, and the other bits mentioned above.

With these enhancements, the Cruze gets a boost in value without a significant jump in pricing. Peter Keley, executive director of sales at Holden, said:

“The 2016 Cruze Z-Series and SRI-Z boast an impressive range of features and design upgrades that add another dimension to an already popular car.”
