What the 2021 Holden Commodore would have looked like

This is what today's Holden Commodore would have looked like – if the model and the Holden brand hadn't been axed. Opel/Vauxhall, now part of the Peugeot-Citroen group, has introduced in Europe the updated version of the car we knew as a Holden Commodore. We can’t know for certain if Holden would have imported rebadged Insignias if its future was looking a little brighter. But it’s interesting to consider what a 2021 Holden Commodore might have looked like.

Holden down to last 500 cars: discounts listed model by model

Holden has asked dealers to report all remaining new cars as sold by the end of this month, so it can clear the books before the brand is retired at the end of 2020. The car maker had asked dealers to report most of their stock as sold by the end of last month, but some late deliveries prompted an extension. It is unclear exactly how many cars are left in Holden’s skeleton showroom network, however numerous dealer sources estimate approximately 500 or fewer new vehicles remain for sale.
