Holden Commodore Sv6 Wagon – That’s because the best angle of the new sedan is from the rear, and its rear fenders would have made the Sportwagon look as rugged as Chuck Norris.
Unchanged, it doesn’t stand out and its rear position is different from the front and makes the car look different and old from the rear.

Naturally, there’s no change in the way it handles and the flexibility it offers with the extra rear space. It is now the only VF Commodore variant to have a boot release button on the tailgate itself (some have a button inside the door).

Like all other VF models, there’s something spectacular when you slide into the luxurious cabin, and the SV6’s Jet Black finish, with a leather-wrapped dash and door panels, not only makes it feel sporty, but which also puts the front seat passengers in a good mood. . which makes it feel smaller than its dimensions suggest.
The 3.6-litre V6 loses some of its response and mid-range punch running on LPG compared to the standard unleaded, but it’s so marginal you don’t even notice it in everyday driving conditions. The only penalty is that its fuel consumption – improved over the VE – is still terrible to look at in numbers, but it is compensated by a very cheap price at the pump; think up to 20 liters per 100 km.
There’s a bit more road noise in rough spots in the Sportwagon compared to the sedan, but you’d never call it intrusive.
And the sports suspension has, like other models, a degree of penetration in its gait. This is mitigated by the level of body control that makes it an incredibly fun family truck to push down a twisty road.

So, as the name suggests, the VF Commodore Sportwagon is a multi-dimensional approach to the legion of SUVs that fill city streets.
Just be sure to park it with its nose facing the road if you want the neighbors to know it’s a new car.
Key Features: Reversing camera, sports seats, electric parking brakes, 18-inch alloys, sports suspension and steering wheel (firmer), alloy pedals.
As Editor-in-Chief of the network, Amac is one of Australia’s most experienced automotive journalists with over 25 years experience in newspapers, magazines, broadcast and digital media. What you are looking at here is the final chapter of a story that began in 1948; the birth of the six-cylinder family car, made in Australia. For the better part of seven decades it has been an Australian staple, like steak and chips. While most of the changes to the last locally assembled Holden Commodore, the MY2016 VF II, were reserved for the V8-powered models, the SV6 wagon here received a few tweaks (mostly cosmetic) to keep it looking and appealing. .

Most of the areas of improvement are around the new front bumper spoiler – now with vertical slits at the corners – which moves air around the front wheels, as well as the new light treatment later that addresses one of the areas that remained untouched in 2013. change of the VE. to vf.
Although the VF II series is the last model code for Australian-built Commodores, there may be some updates for the 2017 model year and some special editions have been offered. Holden seems to want to admit that these types of cars still have a respectable following in Australia.
In contrast, the longtime competitor Ford Falcon appears to be suffering a slow and brutal euthanasia from its parent. It received a tender last year, FG X, to take it to the end of 2016. That’s a full year before the last VFII is expected to roll off the line. Aside from the expected XR8 and XR6 Turbo Sprint editions, Ford seems reluctant to admit it still makes cars here. And due to the lack of promotion, many will not know what an honest and capable car it is.
However, Holden secured the lead with VF that Ford would never challenge again. Fit and finish, materials, refinement and dynamics reach a different level with the VF. So is the bottom line shipping-worthy?

The SV6 features the same 210kW 3.6-litre V6 and FE2 suspension as the 2014 model, offering a sportier set-up compared to the flagship Evoke, which has a 3.0-litre V6.
The good parts of the 2008 Sportswagon are still there, with muscular wheel arches and front-end styling changes sure to hit the VE mark. The new grille treatment adds to the overall look, while the LED taillights also add some flair. Sitting on 18-inch five-spoke wheels, shod with 245/45 tyres, the car is instantly recognizable as a Holden and has a visual presence, despite the fullness of the Commodores.

Step into the cabin and it still looks fresh from the major overhaul it received two years ago. The MyLink touchscreen is intuitive, while additional audio controls are discreet and fall easily to the touch. The audio itself is good and flawless at high volume, offering good bass and sound quality, as good as you’d expect for the money. Using a decibel gauge, the maximum we saw was 98.6dB.
Other goodies include the dual-zone climate control button font and faux carbon fiber steering wheel. The blue mood lighting inside the console and door handles do a great job of adding a premium feel. The cabin is also roomy and roomy for all occupants, ranking within the class benchmark.
With 895 liters of boot space with the seats up and 2000 with the bottom down, the Sportswagon is a useful product, though no match for the long-wheelbase wagons of old or the practical ute. You can definitely move things you wouldn’t expect in a sedan. However, the tailgate is heavy and could use an electronic locking feature like some new players are playing.
The only downsides might be that the trip computer screen only offers one function at a time, unlike the new LCD screen on top-of-the-line Commodores, and the rear windows only touch up, not down, for some reason. But overall, the build quality, materials and interior design should stand out not only to Holden’s assembly workers, but also to the parts suppliers who design and build the parts.

Flick the starter button and the throttle spins the engine to a quiet idle, registering 41.5 decibels from inside the cabin. The Malibu-sourced shifter and electric parking brake are fun things to use, while the steering wheel seems to offer a more off-center feel than its V8-powered cousins. Parking and maneuvering are a challenge in tight spaces, with blind-spot-inducing A-pillars and size visible from the outset.
Front and rear parking sensors, as well as an excellent rear-view camera, do not help here, but, it must be said, the camera is slow to load when reverse gear is engaged. The park assist system works very well in most situations. Adults are surprised and think you’re sloppy if you throw your hands up in the air, like in an ad. So maybe it’s better not to.
The 210kW V6 is responsive and feels ‘Commodore’ in its power delivery, with a ‘pure’ and tight top end. All in all though it lacks the character and tune of other V6 engines and is not the most important part of the car. Performance can best be described as good, with 0-100km/h in 7.28 seconds and the quarter mile possible in 15.47 seconds. Overall average fuel economy of 11L/100km and 7L/100km on the highway isn’t too bad for the car’s size and performance level.
We did notice some wind noise around the A-pillars when driving, but that’s probably because Holden has done an excellent job of isolating other sources of noise. The car feels solid and very comfortable, as we should expect from this type of car.

Around town, the suspension can be stiff for some, especially on downshifts, for example, but there’s excellent rebound and a strong chassis to make this tolerable. Taking some twisty beats, the Commodore still shines with its competitors. The FE2 suspension keeps the car dry by gliding, and turning is desirable thanks to the well-mounted engine under the hood.
As cornering speed increases, the power handling increases progressively and communicatively, giving you a sense of what the unassuming chassis can do. This exterior belies its size and 1732 kg tare weight. In the end, it’s not a sports car but it’s as refined as you can ask for in a car of this type and price.
In our opinion, the gears are too long
