The Holden International is back, this time in VF Commodore form. The new special edition has just been introduced to help celebrate 35 years of the legendary Aussie nameplate.
Like the previous editions, the Evoke-based VF Commodore International comes with a number of added features to boost overall value. It’s available in sedan and Sportwagon format, powered by the 3.0-litre SIDI V6 engine producing 185kW and 290Nm.
So what sort of goodies do you get this time? To start with the exterior is distinguished by a set of unique 18-inch alloy wheels, the headlights also use darkened bezels, while an ‘International’ badge cements in the exclusive edition.
Inside adds more appeal, with a full leather trim and seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Standard equipment is also boosted, with blind-spot alert, reverse traffic alert, and LED daytime running lights included in the pack.
Phil Brook, Holden executive director of vehicle sales, service and marketing, recently spoke about the edition, saying,
“The VF range has been very well received and we’ve continued to look at how we can offer maximum value, so we’re delighted to be able to introduce an even more compelling package to large car buyers.
“At such a competitive price, and loaded with technology, we expect it to be another winner in our showrooms.”
Holden hasn’t been specific on numbers, however, only limited examples will be built this year. Prices start at $36,990 for the sedan and $38,990 for the Sportwagon, which is only $2000 more expensive than the regular Evoke.
