Next-generation Commodore pricing begins at just $33,690 for the entry level LT 2.0-litre turbo, which is $1800 less than its base model predecessor, Commodore VFII Evoke.

But to celebrate the launch of the new model Holden is offering driveaway pricing for a limited time, starting from $35,990 – that’s $3,935 less than its predecessor.

There’s a Calais in the mix, but no new SS – that would require a V8.

Heading up the sports side of the range is the 3.6-litre V6 AWD, Commodore VXR with Continuous Damping Control suspension, front Brembo brakes and Adaptive AWD – the first time AWD has featured across the Commodore range.

“We’ve hosted over 400 customers at the Lang Lang proving ground in the last few months to show them the next-generation Commodore in development and get their feedback on how it drives,” Holden’s Vehicle Development Manager, Jeremy Tassone, said.

“We’ve had a few skeptical people come for a drive but once they’ve been in the car and experienced the work the team has put in, they’ve left with huge smiles on their faces. It’s been great to see and be able to involve them.”
