The Holden Equinox is coming soon...
They might be our favourite new family cars but Australians are actually buying SUVs at a faster rate than they are having babies. With nearly 441,000 sold last year, the population of SUVs grew by one every minute and 10 seconds while according to the ABS, we only added a newborn to the tally every 1 minute and 41 seconds. And for the first six months of this year, SUVs outsold passenger cars for the first time.
And Holden is keen to cater to that ever-increasing demand (for SUVs, not babies), with the all-new Equinox landing locally by the end of the year and its bigger brother Acadia due in 2018 to join the Trax and Trailblazer.
The new five-seat Equinox will be sourced from the US (home of the original SUV), but eagle-eyed Holden fans may already spot development models on the roads as Holden engineers work to adapt the car specifically for Australian conditions and tastes.
And when it arrives, the new Equinox will have plenty to offer, with high-tech features such wireless charging, Apple CarPlay® and Android® Auto, heated and ventilated seats and the ability to park itself for those tight spots in the city.
Add to that a spacious, flexible cabin, a range of turbo engines, and front or all-wheel drive and the Equinox will herald a new dawn for Holden SUVs.
