The 2018 Holden Commodore
The Holden Commodore has, for years, been a staple in Australian family life. Working as a fantastic family car, safe, smart, and beautifully built, the Holden Commodore has now been updated and the replacement has some impressive refurbishments to offer a new buyer. Enthusiasts will lament the loss of the former, but there is some merit in looking to the future. Let’s take a look at what the new 2018 Holden Commodore has to offer:
The main concept of the Holden Commodore is the same and has been the same since the original FX came off the production line in 1978, but the car has seen changes to suit the times and better serve its owners.
Changes and Benefits
The newest version of the Holden Commodore, just like the original, is based off a European Opel, which means that it has changed to a smaller interior and exterior and is more fuel efficient than the older version. However, there are some fundamental changes that have been made to update the car, and it is a completely different machine to the one it is replacing. You can grab it in front wheel or four-wheel drive, hatch or sedan body styles, with a four or six-cylinder engine.
The difference between the Opel that this car is based on and the 2018 Holden Commodore, is the way that they drive. Around corners and over bumps, the Opel tends to be quite willowy, whereas the new Holden Commodore stays easy to maneuver and handle, much easier to control and sits flatter to the road.
The new 2018 Holden Commodore is not a serious muscle car anymore, which we know has disappointed some of the Australian car enthusiasts out there, but it has changed to suit the times we’re in. The perfect family vehicle with modern safety features to keep your little ones as safe as possible, and a large enough boot to accommodate even the most outdoor prone and adventurous family, the 2018 Holden Commodore, is moving into the 21st Century as one of the best family vehicles that you can buy today.
So, if you are looking for an affordable family car, a beautifully crafted, stylish design, a powerful engine and great control, with enough grit to handle the rough, outback roads of Australia, then you should consider taking a look at the 2018 Holden Commodore. It is not what it used to be, but this does not have to a bad thing. The only way to find out for yourself, is to take it for a spin and let the car speak to you on its terms.
