Next-generation Holden Commodore Sportwagon unveiled


General Motors has taken the wraps off the new Opel Insignia Sports Tourer, which when arrives in Australia, will be the all-new Holden Commodore Sportwagon.

Following closely on the heels of the reveal of the next-generation Commodore, the Sportwagon is said to offer space and sophistication in equal measures. Accompanying the 1640 litres of boot space and optional 40/20/40 foldable rear seats is a suite of high-tech features including IntelliLux LED matrix headlights, comprehensive driver assistance systems, next-generation head-up display and motion operated tailgate. The Commodore Sportwagon will also come packing Holden’s first nine-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.


Drivetrain line-up mirrors the Commodore sedan’s with turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol and diesel options, alongside the flagship twin-turbo V6 with 230kW and 370Nm, paired with an all-wheel drive system and 9-speed automatic transmission.

Holden claims the new Sportwagon comes with significant mass reductions than the current Commodore – depending on powertrain and trim, driven by the use of lightweight materials and efficient packaging.
