Wheels reported Opel CEO Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann confirmed what we’ve long suspected after the debut of the Opel GT concept.
“It’s very soon coming,” he said, implying the debut of the 2017 Opel Insignia is likely coming in the next six months. Neumann has been optimistic in the past over the next Holden Commodore, stating he would be “proud” if the vehicle he was overseeing development of became a Holden. He echoed those statements at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show stating, “I think the Australians will like this car a lot.”
The 2018 Holden Commodore will likely be given an Aussie makeover when it debuts towards the end of 2017, and be developed to suit the Australian consumer’s driving dynamics, one of the reasons Holden has retained engineers.
So, there you have it, Holden faithful. The next Holden Commodore will be a front-wheel and all-wheel drive sedan without a V8 option, whether you like it or not.
