The Holden Commodore International special edition has been released to mark the 35th anniversary of the iconic Australian-made large car.
The VF Commodore International is available in $36,990 sedan and $38,990 Sportwagon body styles, making it $2000 more than the entry-level Evoke on which it’s based. LPG is a $2500 option on both variants.
The Holden Commodore International is distinguished from the Evoke by its 18-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, dark bezel headlamps and ‘International’ badging. The cabin gains leather across the seats, steering wheel and gear lever.
The inclusion of blind spot alert and reverse traffic alert further enhances the Commodore’s standard safety package.
The bonus International features add to the VF’s impressive standard equipment list, which includes auto park assist, rear-view camera, dual-zone climate control, and the MyLink infotainment system with eight-inch touchscreen, embedded applications, Siri Eyes Free compatibility and Bluetooth phone connectivity with audio streaming.
Commodore sales have been strong over the past three months following the launch of the latest VF generation, averaging 2835 units per month in that time. Holden’s large car still remains on track for its worst year in history, however, with year-to-date figures down 19 per cent compared with 2012.
Almost three million Holden Commodores have been sold since the homegrown nameplate launched in 1978 as the replacement for the Kingswood.
