Holden Announces Equinox Diesel


Holden reveals details for high tech Equinox diesel

A fuel efficient and feature packed Holden Equinox diesel is set to arrive in Holden showrooms this month.

The Equinox diesel will be powered by an all-new 1.6 litre turbo diesel four-cylinder engine that produces 100kW and 320Nm whilst only sipping 5.6 litres per 100 kilometres of diesel on a combined cycle.

The diesel engine is paired to a six-speed automatic that sends power to either the front or all four wheels.

The diesel engine will be available in the Equinox LS+ upwards, with the highly specified LTZ and LTZ-V models equipped with all-wheel drive as standard.

Refinement is said to be impressive, with Holden’s new marketing chief Kristian Aquilina stating “the new 1.6-litre turbo diesel engine boasts leading efficiency while remaining so smooth and refined, you forget you’re driving a diesel.”

“The turbo diesel joins the 1.5-litre and 2.0-litre turbo petrol engines currently sold in the range, meaning we’ve got an Equinox to suit every taste, and with our extended seven-year warranty, now is a great time to buy” Aquilina added.

The Equinox diesel is backed by Holden’s seven year/unlimited kilometre warranty along with seven years’ roadside assist, for added peace of mind.

The pricing for the Equinox diesel range is as follows:

Equinox Pricing (RRP)

LS+ $35,990
LT $39,990
LTZ $47,290
LTZ-V $49,290
