The LT is the entry grade into the Holden Acadia range and lists for $43,990 for the front-wheel drive version with all-wheel drive costing $4000 more.

The LT comes with a mountain of standard features, including an 8.0-inch touchscreen with sat nav, reversing camera, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, three-zone climate control, rear parking sensors, proximity key, rear privacy glass and 18-inch alloy wheels.

All Aussie Acadias are powered by a 231kW/367Nm V6 petrol. Shifting gears is a nine-speed automatic transmission.

The Acadia has yet to be given an ANCAP crash rating, but the level of advanced safety equipment is outstanding. All grades come with AEB (on the LT and LTZ it's a city speed version, while the LTZ has higher speed AEB), there's blind spot warning, rear cross traffic alert, lane keeping assistance and lane departure warning, plus lateral impact avoidance which will swerve to avoid a vehicle that drifts into your lane.
