Holden Executive Director of Sales and Marketing, Philip Brook, said Caprice represented exceptional value in the upper large car segment.

“We think we’ve made a smart investment in our long wheel base models. Caprice has always been an extremely well designed, well-proportioned large car and the all new interior is particularly important to customers in this segment,” he said.

“Caprice has a smart powertrain combination with the 3.6L LPG offering great fuel economy in a luxurious limousine style package and Caprice V with great V8 performance and family car practicality.

“Holden has added the features and advanced technology that customers would only expect from prestige brands to Australia’s own large luxury car – and we’ve made Caprice available with an RRP under $60,000 for the first time.”
