Holden confirms basic Sportwagon spec

Holden says it will market the Sportwagon version of its VE Commodore in Omega, SV6 and range-topping SS-V and Calais V models.

The new wagon will go on sale in the first half of this year.

The wagon was shown in prototype form at the 2007 Australian International Motor Show in Sydney.

Holden says the wagon, which has elements of four-door coupe styling, will combine load-carrying ability with sedan-like ride and handling characteristics.

Standard equipment will include ESP stability programme on all models.

Holden NZ says Sportwagon pricing and full specifications and features will be announced closer to the start of sales.

Basic specifications released this week say the Omega will run the Alloytec V6 with four-speed automatic transmission.

The SV6 will have the High Output Alloytec V6 with five-speed auto transmission; the SS V-Series will run the 6.0-litre LS2 Gen 4 V8 with six-speed manual transmission or six-speed automatic.

The Calais V-Series offers a choice of High Output Alloytec V6 with five-speed auto transmission or Gen 4 V8 with six-speed automatic transmission.
