2005 Holden Commodore Lumina - VZ series

28th September, 2005

GM Holden is delivering more than $6,000 of extra features in the new special edition VZ Commodore Lumina sedan and wagon.

Based on VZ Commodore Executive, with Holden’s advanced 175kW Alloytec engine and four-speed automatic transmission, the special edition Lumina comes equipped with a range of features, such as luxury sports suspension (sedan only), larger 17-inch alloy wheels, six-disc in-dash CD player, front and rear power windows and leather steering wheel, gear selector and handbrake handle.

GM Holden Director of Marketing, John Elsworth, said Lumina reinforced Commodore’s reputation for outstanding value.

“The extra features built into the new special edition Commodore Lumina make this one of the best value Commodores yet,” Mr Elsworth said.

“With Lumina’s additional accessories and sports performance, Australia ’s best-selling passenger vehicle is now even more attractive to Australian car buyers.”

Only 3,700 Luminas (2,775 sedans and 925 wagons) will be produced and are available from now until December.
