New Euro-sourced Commodore hits the roads of Europe…

Another step towards the Australian arrival of the all-new 2018 Holden Commodore has been made with the European version of the vehicle being launched.

Known as the Opel Insignia Grand Sport in Europe, Holden today said the new car is ready to bring new levels of luxury, refinement and technology to Europe, and then Australia.

2018 Holden Commodore Key Facts:

  • Co-developed with Holden
  • Arriving early 2018
  • Powered by V6 petrol engine or 2.0 litre turbo-petrol
  • V6 variant comes with all-wheel drive
  • Nine-speed auto standard on both variants
  • Will be offered in sedan and wagon variants

Brett Vivian, Holden’s Executive Director of Engineering, says the Insignia has launched to positive reviews in Europe.

And he says now Holden is finalizing the local settings for the model.

“We’ve been involved with the new Commodore’s development from the very beginning and have been working to tune to the specific tastes of Aussie buyers who like responsive steering and sporty suspension, yet composed ride quality when cruising.

“These are the hallmarks of Commodore and we are going to deliver again with the next-gen car.”
