2018 Holden NG Commodore spied undisguised

2018 Holden NG Commodore spied undisguised

Next Commodore snapped in the US ahead of official unveil

Well, this looks pretty good, doesn't it? Sneaky spy photographers have snapped the 2017 Opel Insignia undisguised in the US ahead of its official unveiling.

Why do we care? Because as most car nuts will know the 2017 Opel Insignia will be rebadged as the 2018 Holden NG Commodore, due for release in around 12 months' time.

Check out the Motor1 website for almost 80 images detailing every angle of the new Commodore, but it's clear that Holden's new sedan/hatch and wagon is much better looking than the frumpy camouflaged prototypes hinted it.

The rest of the world has to make do with 2.0-litre petrol and diesel turbocharged four-cylinder models, but in addition to these Australia will receive a 230kW/370Nm 3.6-litre V6 all-wheel drive flagship, capable of 0-100km/h in around six seconds.

While the new Commodore may look similar in size and shape to the likes of the Mazda 6 or Kia Optima, its dimensions are actually extremely similar to the current VF II, measuring 16mm longer, 35mm narrower and 3mm shorter in height.

We'll bring you more details as we have them, but does the sleek styling help you warm to the all-new imported Holden Commodore?
