The Holden Trax will go on sale in Australia in around 12 months’ time, giving the local manufacturer an all-new player in the booming small SUV segment. Set to be unveiled at the 2012 Paris motor show in September in Chevrolet guise, the Trax goes on sale throughout Europe in the second quarter of next year and is anticipated to make its local showroom debut around the middle of 2013. Holden director of powertrain technology Simon Cassin says a number of Trax prototypes will begin appearing on Australian roads in the near future as the company’s local engineers assist General Motors’ global development program for the car.
“Holden is well recognised within the GM world for our expertise in engine and transmission calibration and we are very pleased to be involved in the development of this important vehicle,” Cassin said. “We are working closely with the homeroom on global calibration work and of course making further refinements to ensure Trax will be well suited to Australian roads and conditions when it arrives next year.” Holden’s Kate Lonsdale said the local tuning work was limited to powertrain engineering and did not include developing a unique suspension tune for Australia at this stage.
