2014 Holden Cruze Z-Series on sale from $21,990

May 2, 2014

The Holden Cruze Z-Series has been announced, following in the footsteps of the Commodore Z Series. These aren’t special editions; the regular Z-Series replaces the CDX, and the SRi Z-Series replaces the SRi-V.

Both models come with more equipment than the ones they replace, despite representing a high level of value in the competitive small car market.

Starting in the middle of the range, the Cruze Z-Series is available in sedan form only. It’s now optional with a six-speed manual transmission, and comes with standard features such as the MyLink interface with a seven-inch touch-screen monitor, voice recognition with Siri, leather seats, and a reverse parking camera. All of this is carried over from the CDX.

The Z-Series adds unique dark-finish 17-inch alloy wheels, a rear lip spoiler, Z-Series floor mats and sill plates, and various ‘Z’ badges on the outside.
