Holden is continuing to drip-feed details about the upcoming seven-seat Acadia SUV, this time the lion brand has announced the car’s safety credentials.
Already confirmed is a naturally-aspirated V6 petrol engine, nine-speed automatic and the choice of front- and all-wheel drive, depending on the model designation.
Every Acadia variant will get autonomous emergency braking, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, automatic high-beam assist, forward collision alert, rear parking assist, blind zone alert and rear cross-traffic alert as standard.
In a first for Holden, the Acadia will also feature Intelligent Speed Assist with Traffic Sign Recognition which has been calibrated by Holden’s local engineers, as has the new Active Trailer Assist.
In a bid to offer a strong alternative to the Toyota Kluger, the Acadia’s standard equipment list includes keyless entry with push-button start, three-zone automatic climate control, rear-view camera, USB ports in all three rows, an 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen, satellite navigation, Apple Car Play and Android Auto.
“The level of technology across the range is compelling,” said Mathew Rattray-Wood, Holden General Manager of SUV Marketing. “Whether we are talking safety, convenience or infotainment, Acadia has the most complete technology package Holden has ever offered.”
The Acadia is scheduled to be available in the fourth quarter of this year. Full specifications and pricing will be released closer to car’s launch.
