Holden confirms high-riding Commodore Tourer for all-new Commodore range
Holden has announced that the new Commodore range will feature a high-riding all-wheel drive model, dubbed the Holden Commodore Tourer.
The Commodore Tourer will be 110mm and 20mm longer than the sedan and Sportswagon variants and gains an extra 20mm over other models along with all-wheel drive, in case the driver is feeling a little adventurous. That all-wheel drive system is a multi-plate clutch set up, which can send power to individual wheels that need it the most.
To help distinguish the Tourer from other models there is macho black body cladding and a silver skid plate up front.
Standard equipment will include: Autonomous Emergency Braking, adaptive cruise with speed limit function, lane departure warning, lane keep assist which gently corrects the steering if the car begins to drift out of its lane, blind spot monitoring and forward collision warning.
Luxuries that have never been seen before on other Commodore models will include a power tailgate, massaging seats, massaging and cooled front seats, one touch folding rear seats.
“The next-generation Commodore Tourer gives the range a new level of appeal, combining Australia’s love for SUVs with the practicality of a wagon and the driving appeal of a sedan. Whether you’re a weekend warrior, or just like the idea of being one, the Commodore Tourer gives our range a new dimension” said Holden’s Director – Communications, Sean Poppitt.
“Commodore Tourer comes with a high-tech AWD system and also lets customers select specific driving modes, giving them the flexibility to be able to get off the beaten track – whether that’s finding secluded camp spots, quiet surf beaches or boutiques in Bondi.”
Pricing for the Commodore Tourer is yet to be released.
