Holden Trax LT 2018 Review


You can't stand still in this world. If you're Holden's product planning team, you've got an ever-changing range. One minute you're dealing with GM's European outpost, planning for your import-only future and pinning your nameplate to the rump of a big five-door Euro hatchback and calling it Commodore. It's a risk. And then the parent company goes and sells that European outpost to the French giant PSA.

While all that's going on, you've got the fiercely competitive SUV segments to deal with. Captiva is older than most of the people driving it (okay, that's not quite fair...), the Colorado/Trailblazer is an acquired taste and then you've got Trax. Take a look at your numbers and, by golly, it's doing okay despite looking a bit boxy and awkward.

Thankfully, it hasn't been bought by the French or saddled with a terrible specification. In fact, in 2016, the Trax received a fetching facelift inside and out. It's made in Korea by a GM-owned division and only the absolute bottom of the range is stuck with the asthmatic 1.8-litre auto.
