Holden continues the success of it’s new Series II Commodore range with the introduction of the Special Edition Berlina International sedan and Sportwagon models.
Catering for motorists seeking great value, the Series II Berlina International delivers $9,500 of extra features including leather seat trim, twin-spoke 18-inch alloy wheels and a rear-view camera.
Holden Director of Marketing Philip Brook said the updated offering has been designed to create even more demand for Australia’s best-selling car.
“We think the Series II update to Commodore has made a great car even better by introducing smart multimedia technology, improved fuel economy and the capacity for certain models to run on environmentally friendly bio-ethanol,” Mr Brook said.
“The Berlina International models really build on the success of the Series II range by offering customers yet another smart looking vehicle packaged up with a long-list of features.
“At such a competitive price we expect it to be a winner in our showrooms.”
Now on sale around Australia, the Berlina International can be purchased for the drive away price of $36,990 (sedan) and $38,900 (sportwagon) including prestige paint.
Powered by Holden’s frugal 3.0-litre SIDI V6 which now achieves economy of 9.1 litres of fuel per 100 kilometres (sedan), the Berlina International also features flex-fuel technology which enables customers to run their vehicle on bio-ethanol, known in many markets 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 created from household garbage.
