Alongside the Holden Commodore SS V-Series Special Edition GM Holden has also announced the special edition Commodore International for completely different buyers.
The International sedan and Sportwagon models will deliver $7,500 of extra features (given the RRP of extra features) such as leather seat trim and 18 inch alloy wheels.
“The International edition is even better value when you combine extra features with the advanced 3.0 litre direct injection engine and 6-speed automatic transmission.” Holden Director of Marketing Philip Brook said
Using Holden's all new 3.0 litre Spark Ignition Direct Injection V6 engine and six-speed automatic transmission, the Commodore International will gain all the features of the Omega plus:
- 18 inch alloy wheels (4)
- Berlina front grille
- Leather appointed seat trim
- Leather wrapped steering wheel
- Bluetooth for compatible mobile phones
- International badge
- Chrome decklid eyebrow moulding (sedan only)
- Rear Park Assist (sedan only as already standard on all Sportwagon models)
The new Commodores will go on sale from November with a driveaway price of $35,990 for the VE Commodore International Sedan (auto) and $37,990 for the VE Commodore International Sportwagon (auto). Metallic paint will set you back another $500.
LPG fans are unfortunately only able to pick the 3.6 litre dual fuel LPG Alloytec V6 engine in Commodore International sedan guise mated to a four-speed automatic transmission.
No photos of the new Commodore International are currently available, we've used a previous image which is almost accurate but is missing the SIDI badge. CarAdvice will update once photos come through.
