Six Airbags Standard Across Commodore Range

GM Holden has announced its top-selling VE Commodore range now has six airbags and air-conditioning as standard on all sedan models, from Omega to the range-topping SS V.

Holden has reinforced its commitment to safety and value by adding Omega, Berlina, SV6 and SS to the range of models that have Curtain Airbags standard alongside ESP®.

Omega sedan also gains Side Impact Airbags, air-conditioning, alloy wheels, body colour exterior door handles and mirror covers and an all-new grille treatment.

On sale 15 March and starting at RRP $36,790 (excludes dealer delivery and Government charges), the enhanced VE Omega sedan is also available in the new exterior colour of Karma.

Side Impact Airbags, Curtain Airbags and ESP® are also standard across the all-new Sportwagon range – with the addition of rear park assist.

When launched mid-year, Sportwagon pricing will be only $1000 more than its sedan equivalents, and offers a new level of comfort, safety and styling in a Holden wagon, combined with sedan-like ride and handling characteristics.

GM Holden previewed a selection of Sportwagon models and new exterior colours at the Melbourne International Motor Show, including an SS V Voodoo (aqua blue metallic) and Calais V in Karma (dark jade green metallic).

GM Holden Executive Director of Sales, Marketing and Aftersales, Alan Batey, said the Omega upgrade and Sportwagon pricing were further examples of Holden delivering increased value, safety and choice to customers.

“With six airbags and ESP® now standard on Commodore sedan and the soon-to-be-launched Sportwagon line-up, we believe potential buyers will see this as a fantastic value-for-money proposition.” he said.
