Holden Adds Commodore Tourer to Lineup for 2018
Following up on the revelation that it will import the Opel Insignia Grand Sport to fill the role of the next-generation Commodore, Holden this month revealed that it will also import the Opel Insignia Country Tourer and rebadge it the Holden Commodore Tourer. This brings the number of new Commodores being offered in 2018 to three between the Commodore, Commodore Sportwagon, and now Commodore Tourer.
“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,” said Holden Director of Communications Sean Poppitt. “Whether you’re a weekend warrior, or just like the idea of being one, the Commodore Tourer gives our range a new dimension.”
“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,” added Poppitt.

The Commodore Tourer boasts an extra 20 millimeters of ground clearing over the Commodore and Commodore Sportwagon in addition to 110 millimeters more length than the former and 20 millimeters more length than the latter.
As is the case with the Commodore, which is set to launch in early 2018, the Commodore Tourer will first need to undergo additional test miles at the Lang Lang proving grounds to prove its mettle with regards to performing in Australia.
