Styling

SportsCat+ by Design

A standout in the 4x4 field, the new SportsCat+ has it over the competition in more ways than one. An increased ride-height gives the vehicle an obvious ground clearance advantage, while a distinctive ‘bonnet bulge’, unique outer and upper grilles, striking wheel arch fender flares and a ‘splash tray’ create a look that is muscular and aggressive.

Alloy Wheels

The rugged 18” x 10” 6-spoke forged alloys, matte black on SportsCat and matte black with a machined-face on SportsCat+, make a bold statement, with an offset that increases the overall track of both vehicles by 30mm.

Driving Dynamics

Rear De-coupling Anti-roll Bar

Developed specifically for the SportsCat+ by HSV’s chassis engineers, the rear de-coupling anti-roll bar improves the higher speed road driving performance of the vehicle by controlling rear roll, and thereby improving overall vehicle balance and turn-in transient response.

The de-coupling feature ensures that when heading into rugged 4x4 territory, the vehicle’s suspension settings can be optimised for off-road performance: the system is automatically de-activated upon the driver’s (“shift-on-the-fly”) selection of Four-Wheel Low.

Suspension
HSV Sports Suspension

Both SportsCat models feature HSV Sports suspension with the front spring rate stiffened to 110 Newtons/mm. This spring rate helps deliver outstanding front-end support with less body roll and more accurate transient response. The vehicle’s MTV dampers have also been tuned to suit this spring rate with the overall result being a more performance-based handling characteristic.

In addition to the increased spring rate, front ride height has been lifted by 25mm. This modification further improves the approach angle of the vehicle, increases ground clearance to the body and reduces the overall rake, delivering a more natural on-road stance.

SupaShock Suspension

SupaShock suspension, as introduced to the Australian market on HSV’s iconic GTSR W1, will also be available as a factory-fitted option on the SportsCat+, taking the vehicle’s suspension capabilities to another level yet again. These linear-style dampers are significantly larger than regular dampers, delivering the lowest frictional losses of any commercially available damper. Their adoption helps deliver superior performance and road grip without compromising ride quality or body control.

Hill Start Assist / Hill Descent Control

Hill Start Assist prevents the vehicle from rolling away when trying to pull away on an upward or downward gradient. The system engages automatically when a gradient is detected; it then acts to hold the Sportscat stationary after the brake is released, giving the driver time to apply the throttle. Hill Descent Control utilises the active braking capability of the ESC to maintain a controlled speed when travelling down-hill.

Trailer Sway Control

The Trailer Sway Control system detects the onset of instability in trailer towing situations and intervenes to keep the trailer under control. It does this by activating the brakes and reducing engine torque. TSC utilises the combination of ABS, Traction Control, Electronic Brake-force Distribution and Electronic Brake Assist to control wheel slip, reduce wheel-spin and enhance vehicle stability and predictability while accelerating and braking.

Roll-Over Mitigation

The Roll Over Mitigation function constantly monitors the vehicle’s behaviour with the help of the ESC sensors, and intervenes when the vehicle senses a roll-over situation. Roll Over Mitigation brakes individual wheels and reduces the driving torque to prevent roll over and to stabilize the vehicle.

Towing

Both SportsCat models have a maximum towing capacity of 3,500kg (braked) and 750kg (unbraked).

Interior

Sophisticated sports ergonomics

The interior of the SportsCat delivers the perfect marriage of form and function. Take the wheel of the new SportsCat and the first thing you’ll notice is the firm embrace of the front 6-way electric adjustable HSV Sports seats. Special treatments adorn the dash pad, door inserts, centre console cover and floor mats, while rear seat passengers enjoy a similar level of comfort and style.

Technology/Safety

Rain Sensing Wipers

The rain sensor, located behind the internal rear-view mirror, detects the amount of water on the windscreen and automatically regulates the frequency of the windscreen wipers.

Forward Collision Alert

Forward Collision Alert, with Head Up Warning, uses a digital camera mounted on the windscreen with state-of-the-art image processing to observe and warn you of vehicles slowing down ahead. When approaching a vehicle too quickly, the system provides a flashing alert and rapidly beeps. The system also provides a visual alert if following a vehicle too closely.

Lane Departure Warning

Lane Departure Warning helps to combat distraction and drowsiness on the road. It alerts you to any unintentional lane departures with an audible warning, keeping you and your passengers on the right track.

Front & Rear Park Assist

The Park Assist system is designed to identify and notify the driver of an object in the vehicle’s path when the vehicle is moving forward or reversing at a speed of less than 8 km/h.

Remote Start

When fitted with the optional automatic transmission, both vehicles feature remote start which allows the vehicle’s engine to be started from outside the vehicle by using the remote start button found on the key-fob. When activated, the climate control system will also deploy the previous settings.

Remote Window Activation

The windows can be opened by a secondary (5 seconds) press of the remote key-fob. The windows will automatically close when the doors are locked with the remote key-fob.

Rear View Camera

SportsCat’s rear view camera system consists of a video camera/module located at the rear of the vehicle. The system is activated when the transmission is placed in reverse, and is displayed in the infotainment system.

7 Airbags

SportsCat’s safety credentials are enhanced with the provision of front airbags for the driver and front passenger, front seat side impact airbags, full length side curtain airbags and a driver’s knee airbag.
