Opel to return to Australia, Holden to lose Commodore and Astra?

German brand Opel could make a return to Australia in a move that would see Commodore and Astra vacate Holden showrooms and leave it with a range of SUVs and utes. The bold plan is one of two confidential proposals reportedly being discussed with General Motors and independent importer Inchcape, a UK-based firm which distributes Subaru, Peugeot and Citroen cars in Australia.

2019 Holden Commodore/Opel Insignia wagon facelift spied

A facelifted version of the Opel Insignia Sports Tourer wagon, sold in Australia as the Holden Commodore, has been spied undergoing testing in Europe. Up front, the Insignia prototype sports a disguised and completely reworked front fascia. From what we can see, the Insignia will gain a full-width grille which will blend into a set of redesigned headlights.

Opel Insignia gets infotainment upgrade, not confirmed for Commodore

Opel has announced a new infotainment system for the Insignia, complete with a wider range of connected services for the in-built satellite navigation. Two tiers will be offered: Multimedia and Multimedia Navi Pro, both of which rely on the same 8.0-inch touchscreen offered in the current Commodore/Insignia. Key among the upgrades is a raft of new connected navigation services, with live traffic reporting, real-time fuel prices, parking information and over-the-air map updates.

2018 Holden Commodore VXR: Opel, Buick cousins revealed

Forming part of a simultaneous global unveiling for all three brands, new Opel and Buick-badged versions of the car we'll see as the 2018 Holden Commodore VXR have been revealed today. Identical to the Holden-badged car revealed earlier today, these new Opel Insignia GSi and Buick Regal GS performance models will go on sale in Europe and the US respectively. A Chinese debut for the Buick could also be on the cards, and, as always, the Insignia will wear a Vauxhall badge in the UK.

Holden involved in Opel Insignia development since 2012

Opel says Holden’s involvement in the Insignia has been integral to the project since day one, with both design and engineering input from Australia shaping the next-generation Commodore from as far back as 2012. The Insignia, which will become the new 2018 Holden Commodore, has been engineered and designed by Opel in Europe, but the team in Australia had been actively involved with the project from the get-go.
