Holden’s new model year 12 Series II Commodore range has been boosted by the introduction of the Special Edition Commodore Equipe, available in sedan and wagon bodystyles.

The Equipe is packed full of desirable extras including 18-inch alloy wheels, rear-view camera and leather-appointed seat trim.

The Special Edition Equipe models are targeted at the buyer seeking even greater value from Australia’s top-selling car, representing $9,500** worth of additional equipment.

Holden Executive Director of Sales, Marketing and Aftersales, John Elsworth, said the Equipe will serve to further enhance the appeal of the best-selling Commodore.

“The MY12 update to Commodore has made a great car even better, and now the Special Edition Equipe models introduce a raft of fantastic extra equipment including a rear view camera,” Mr Elsworth said.

“At such a competitive price we expect it to be a winner in our showrooms.”

Now on sale around Australia, the Special Edition Equipe can be purchased for the drive-away price of $36,990 for the sedan and $38,900 for the Sportwagon, both including prestige paint.

Powered by Holden’s 3.0-litre SIDI V6 which now achieves economy of 8.9 litres of fuel per 100 kilometres (sedan), the Special Edition Equipe also features flex-fuel technology which enables customers to run their vehicle on Bio-Ethanol, also known as E85; a blend of up to 85 per cent ethanol and 15 per cent petrol.

Bio-Ethanol is a cleaner burning fuel made in Australia from the waste by-product of wheat and sugar, as well as sorghum, with the potential to eventually be made from household garbage.
