SYDNEY – Sept 24, 2013: Four Holden cars have been awarded a Wheels Australia Gold Star Value Award for 2013, with the locally-built VF Commodore Evoke LPG, VF Calais V-Series V6 and WN Caprice V V8 taking out top honours in their categories.

The Holden Captiva 7 SX 2.4L also won in the under $60k Medium SUV category of the awards, an annual survey that rates over 250 individual models to find the best value for money in areas such as purchasing price, fuel, service and warranty.

In the Large Cars to $45K category, the VF Commodore Evoke LPG has taken first place, with the VF Calais coming in second.

Wheels magazine said: “Holden‘s decision to introduce VF with prices up to $10k lower than VE certainly pays off here. With residual numbers inflated by new-model excitement, it’s a one-two VF victory blazed by the Evoke LPG (and its way-cheaper fuel), as well as the now sub-$40k Calais.”

The awards continue for VF with the new Holden Calais V-Series V6 representing best value in the Large Cars to $60K category while Holden’s flagship, the WN Caprice V. In the Premium Large to $150K category, the Holden WN Caprice V V8 beat luxury European brands to take out first place.

In the Medium SUV 7 Seaters $60K category, the Holden Captiva 7 2WD SX Petrol and Diesel variants have taken first and second place, respectively.

Holden’s Executive Director of Vehicle Sales, Service & Marketing, Philip Brook, said Gold Star Awards are important for consumers, as they acknowledge the best value for money when buying a new car.

“We are very proud to see our cars acknowledged for their outstanding value”.

“It’s great to see our cars recognised for not only their retail price, but their running costs which include our after sales programs such as the HoldenWise Capped Price Servicing”.

“With seven individual models winning or placing in the top three of five categories, these awards highlight Holden’s range of great value products for new car buyers.”

The full list features in the October 2013 issue of Wheels Magazine.
