Car reviews - Holden - Commodore - Berlina sedan


Holden is hoping to lure more private buyers than ever with its VE Berlina

6 Nov 2006

AN all-new Commodore still raises the awareness, and expectations, of the Australian public more than any other new car. Holden has spent big on bringing its new VE to market with all the flair and energy of a big-budget film release. If you haven’t heard there’s a new Commodore in the streets, then you’ve been locked away in a dark room somewhere. The thing is, Holden’s new Commodore deserves the enthusiasm with which it’s been unveiled. Bigger, safer, better-built and crisp and fresh to look at, it’s a good reason to think about where you’ll go for your next big-car purchase. Holden has never before built a car that comes so close to prestige Euro standards.
Model release date: 1 August 2006 to 1 September 2009

Previous model

Holden VZ Berlina sedan

Released: August 2004
Ended: August 2006
Family Tree: Commodore

Almost forgotten among the SS and special editions in the VZ line-up, the quasi-luxury Berlina sedan used a 175kW/320Nm version of the low-end 3.6-litre Alloytec V6, that usurped the old Buick 3.8-litre V6 serving the Berlina since 1988, mated to a four-speed automatic gearbox. In early 2006 Euro III emissions requirements forced a power output drop to 172kW. Equipment levels were high, but so was the price, for a vehicle that is difficult to distinguish from its cheaper Acclaim brother.
