1993–1994 Holden Nova SLX Limited (LE) sedan

The LE series, based on the Corolla E90 was sold between August 1989 and September 1994. It was offered with Toyota’s 1.4 litre 60-kilowatt (80 hp) engine (hatchback only) and 1.6 litre 67-kilowatt (90 hp) engine, in Holden’s traditional SL (hatchback only), SLX and SLE trims.

The Holden Nova is a compact car that was produced by the GM-Holden-Toyota alliance, known as United Australian Automobile Industries (UAAI) in Australia between August 1989 and 1996. The alliance, and therefore the car, was a result of the failed Button car plan which attempted to rationalise the Australian car manufacturing industry. The Nova was sold and marketed under the Holden nameplate, although it was a badge engineered version of the Toyota Corolla, receiving minor stylistic changes. The Nova was sold only as a four-door sedan and five-door hatchback.

In all years, the Nova was outsold by the Toyota Corolla in Australia, and the car was replaced by the Holden Astra in 1996.
