2018 Holden Commodore Sportwagon Design and Specifications. Holden launched its first Sportwagon, VE in 2006 and the production stopped in 2013. Now in 2016, we finally hear the good news that the next generation of Holden Commodore Sportwagon is going to hit the market very soon. The new car was spied doing a final testing several days ago, and it definitely looks good. This Sportwagon is a successor to Opel Insignia, and it features some significant improvement both in the visual and powertrain. Even though Opel Insignia is no longer produced in Australia, this model is not dead yet because the production is still continued in its Victoria ground.

Engine Changes, Spec
The particular powertrain in Holden Commodore Sportwagon is not confirmed yet. However, it is almost certain that this car will not get a V8 engine. Instead, it will be powered with small capacity turbocharged diesel and petrol engine. The standard version will have front wheel drive. Meanwhile, the higher-end model will have all wheel drive as well as an upgraded engine that can produce more than 206 kW. While the basic version will be called Holden Commodore Sportwagon, it is still unclear whether the higher end model will be named Commodore Sportwagon SS or keeps its Opel OPC name.
Even under the camouflage, it is not difficult to see the sleek lines and the muscular sides of this brand new Holden Commodore Sportwagon. The nose and most of the front side of this car will remind us to Opel Monza while the C-pillar is accentuated with bold chrome.
Meanwhile, the cabin is heavily influenced by Monza design. Even though the interior design is very simple, but it still looks exquisite and modern. Moreover, this car also comes with the latest My Link infotainment system, digital dashboard and also OnStar Wi-Fi.

It is possible that the actual car will get even more improvement than what we see here. The significant visual update is necessary because the competition for this type of car in Australia is really fierce right now. This Sportwagon will have head to head battle with Volkswagen Passat, Mazda 6 and Ford Mondeo. Giving more visual update is the only way Holden can compete with other wagons from those popular manufacturers.
