At first glance, the newly released Holden Caprice looks the same as the older versions. However, people who take this stylish vehicle for a test drive will soon discover that a number of significant changes have been made, especially to the interior of the Caprice.
For starters, the Caprice has shed its aluminium bootlid and bonnet, which makes its lighter and easier to steer. In fact, the new Holden Caprice now weighs in at 1,851kg, which means that it is now an impressive 22kg than previous models. The interior boasts aluminium suspension knuckles as well as lower control arms, while the vehicle now has a special aluminium cockpit beam and a completely reworked suspension that makes it much smoother over rough terrain.
Among the additional features that motorists will get from the new Caprice are a smart leather sports steering wheel, colour head-up display, rain sensing wipers and heated exterior mirrors. The new Caprice also places high focus on safety with additions such as lane departure warning, forward collision alert and blind spot alert.
Many of the new design features are also provided in some of Holden’s most popular models. Although the design of the Holden Caprice is no longer unique, motorists are sure to agree that the changes are for the better and this is a vehicle that they can drive with pride in any season thanks to the special sunroof, while the soft touch suede-like inserts on the door strip and dash trim panel are particularly appealing.
