The latest model comes with more connectivity, new styling and more standard features boosting the already popular small SUV which saw an increase of 25 percent in sales last year.
The Holden Trax continues in the small SUV segment in Australia. Last year the local GM arm sold 7976 examples, giving it 8.1 per cent market share. Sales for the year were up an impressive 25.6 per cent compared with 2015, suggesting this new model will continue the momentum. See below for range highlights and new features, and further below for starting prices (excluding on-roads).
Barina also has new styling front and rear, giving it a more mature, bigger appearance. Improvements to the interior aren’t as significant as thos of Trax.
Instead Australian-delivered Trax will get the sportier European suspension set-up – instead of the softer US tune we tested. So in terms of how it rides and handles, we’ll have to wait until we test the suspension set-up we get locally.
