May 4th marks the launch of the Cascada and the Astra in Australia and New Zealand. They will be built in Europe, exported to Australia, and sold under the name of the GM Australia’s Holden brand.
Opel wants to further intensify cooperation with other GM brands in the coming years. The production of Holden vehicles plays an important role in this strategy. Opel/Vauxhall and Holden have traditionally had a strong relationship in terms of sharing technology and vehicles. Top-notch engineering, excellent driving dynamics, and cutting-edge technology are shared values of the brands.
The Holden Cascada will initially be available in two versions: the Cascada and Cascada Launch Edition. The latter is limited-edition version of 50 and offers a high-grade interior featuring premium nappa leather, ventilated front seats, and a leather sports steering wheel. Extras in the exterior include 20-inch lightweight alloy wheels, Adaptive Forward Lighting, and Bi-Xenon headlamps with LED daytime running lights. Trim levels include the Holden Astra GTC, GTC SPORT, and VXR (similar to the Astra OPC).
And further support is coming by the end of June: The Holden Insignia VXR will also stir up the fifth continent.
