Holden developed the SSX, an all-wheel drive crossover prototype. The luxury four-seat features a V8 engine and AWD handling character becoming the ultimate expression of Holden performance. The rear load compartment comes in for equally stylish treatment. In the passenger compartment you can see black leather sports seats in 2+2 configuration. The SSX announces its high output V8 performance potential with a wide track stance, wheel arch extensions over 19-inch magnesium alloys and a lot more. At the rear, the hatchback is cleverly integrated and edged with a slim black spoiler. The SSX is set even further apart with specific blackout tail lamps.
The SSX is an all-wheel-drive crossover sports hatch prototype that heralds the next-generation of Holdens.
Fully drivable, the SSX is a luxury four-seater sports lifestyle machine which combines high output V8 performance and AWD handling character with cargo carrying convenience. Its flat-floored, multi-purpose load area is accessible through a large rear hatch and can be extended by folding the back seats flush with the floor and dropping the fold-down end gate.
Michael Simcoe, Holden's Executive in Charge, Design, said the widetrack SSX can be described as the ultimate expression of Holden performance, but it is also a clear expression of how functional a range of niche vehicles can be.
The sleek SSX (SS + Crossover) is the product of the company's biggest ever concept car project. The young Holden design team members credited with bringing this exploratory vehicle vividly to life are senior exterior designer Max Wolff, interior designer Warrack Leach and colour and trim designer Kirsty Lindsay.
Set apart by more than its brilliant "Kryptonite" green finish and slick, black-on black interior, the SSX announces its high output V8 performance potential with a wide track stance, wheel arch extensions over 19-inch magnesium alloys, front fender vents, Venturi-style aerodynamic underpans - punctuated at the rear by twin central exhausts - and dual aircraft-style fuel filler doors. Styling cues are VY Commodore with a more aggressive edge - in front a bold, deeper facia with twin projector headlamps, foglamps and exclusive grille. At the rear, the hatch is cleverly integrated and edged with a slim black spoiler. Specific blackout tail lamps set SSX even further apart.
In the passenger compartment, there's more "wow" factor in the form of black leather sports seats in 2+2 configuration, bisected by an elongated centre console in brushed Titan silver. Elsewhere (on the sports instrument cluster, leather-wrapped steering wheel, transmission shifter, for example), more silver accents complement matt black, soft-feel trim finishes. In effective contrast, the high-mounted multi-function display screen, instrument and climate control clusters and auxiliary switches are red-illuminated.
The rear load compartment comes in for equally stylish treatment, its matt black floor bisected by stainless steel wear strips, and side storage compartments finished in Titan silver. With either or both of the rear seats folded, the steel-highlighted floor finish continues and an integrated rear storage bin remains accessible.
