“In just 12 short months since its launch, Trax has established itself as a serious contender in this ever popular segment and we are very pleased with the success it has achieved to date,” said Ms Basile.
“Trax has received great traction in the market as well as plenty of positive reviews and we are committed to building on that success to ensure Trax continues to evolve and respond to customer needs.
“In 2014 Trax is currently Holden’s fourth highest selling vehicle and we’re confident that with the introduction of the 1.4 turbocharged engine and new added extras, it will continue to appeal to a broad customer base ensuring continued success.”
