Next generation Commodore VXR unveiled

Holden has lifted the covers on the top of the range next-generation Holden Commodore. With a focus on dynamic handling, efficient performance and stunning traction off the line, Commodore VXR is the jewel in the next-generation Commodore crown.

The range-topping model boasts Brembo front brakes and a unique sports set-up allowing drivers to switch between driving modes. Driver-adjustable settings include Continuous Damping Control (CDC), steering, transmission and the adaptive AWD system. The VXR packs a 235kW, 381Nm 3.6-litre V6 engine paired with a nine-speed transmission. The adaptive all-wheel drive system boasts torque vectoring technology and a twin-clutch rear differential. Holden says that combined with the selectable drive modes, the all-new Commodore VXR blends power with control for ultimate driver engagement.

The next-generation Commodore VXR also adds bespoke 20-inch alloy wheels, larger rear spoiler, front and rear sports fascias and premium VXR sill plates. Other highlights include next-generation adaptive LED Matrix headlights, heated and ventilated leather performance front seats, and a wealth of cutting-edge driver assistance technology.

The next-generation Commodore VXR will be on sale alongside the rest of the sedan range, along with Sportwagon and Tourer body styles, in early 2018.
