New Holden Commodore European sibling revealed

Fully imported Holden Commodore to share Insignia body…

Here’s another look at what will essentially be the next-generation Holden Commodore.

This is the Opel/Vauxhall Insignia, the car that will be rebadged and retuned for Australia by Holden.

In releasing all the details for the European model, General Motors said the offering is built on a completely new vehicle architecture that is larger than Insignia models of the past.

The car manufacturer saying buyers, globally, will benefit from these larger proportions by way of a more spacious interior.

While the new Commodore/Insignia also boasts a drag co-efficiency score of just 0.26 and weight reductions of up to 175kg (over the previous generation Insignia).

As we already know, the new Commodore will be offered for the first time with all-wheel drive, GM saying the AWD variants will come exclusively with a new eight-speed automatic transmission.

Not surprisingly, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will also feature.

Mark Adams, Vauxhall/Opel Vice President Design Europe, says the new Insignia aims for an upscale and quality feel.

“Its design combines flowing lines and subtle surfaces with crisp, precise lines to exaggerate its dramatic proportions: it looks longer, lower and wider than it actually is, and it definitely looks upscale.

“Every design feature conveys technical know-how and the utmost precision.”
