Holden has announced the launch of the new 1.6 litre diesel Equinox – a medium diesel SUV starting from $35,990.
Showcasing a 1.6-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine, the Equinox oiler pumps out 100kW/320Nm, while fuel economy is rated at 5.6L/100km. The engine is hooked up to a six-speed automatic transmission as standard and both front- and all-wheel drive variants are available.
The Holden Equinox diesel will be offered with the same trim grades as the current petrol range – all except the base LS. That means Holden has made the oiler available in LS+, LT, LTZ and LTZ-V guise. The two top grades are all-wheel drive, while base models make do with front-wheel drive.
Other features include six airbags, 17-inch alloy wheels, a rear-view camera and park assist, 60/40 split folding rear seats and auto headlights. Other comforts include a 7.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, along with four USB inputs.
Keen on the top of the range models? These include wireless phone charging, powered tailgate, heated and cooled front seat plus a larger infotainment screen.
