    Tested: next year’s Holden Commodore

    HOLDEN will import the Insignia, built in Europe, as its staple family sedan — and the four-cylinder turbo is quicker than the standard locally made V6

    DIEHARD Holden fans are in for a shock. The four-cylinder Commodore to be imported from Germany next year is faster than the standard locally made V6.

    We know because we’ve driven it. The 2.0-litre turbo Opel Insignia tested in Europe is not identical to what we will get in Australia (it was all-wheel-drive, whereas four-cylinder models sold here will be front-drive) but it gave a valuable foretaste of what we can expect when it arrives in local showrooms in February rebadged as a Commodore.

    When the homegrown model reaches the end of the line in October — ending 68 years of Holden manufacturing and 39 years of Commodore V8s — there will be a choice of 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder petrol or diesel front-wheel drives or a V6 all-wheel drive.

    There is no turbo planned for the V6 because there is no room under the bonnet.

    The Insignia is smaller than the locally built Commodore. The V6 was a late addition after the Holden factory closure was announced and the Insignia was selected as its successor.

    The standard locally made V6 is a 3.0 litre that no one but even the most tight arse fleet manager buys
