2011 Holden VE II Commodore SSV

 Known as Holden-iQ, the Holden VE II Commodore SSV system is controlled through a clever, user-friendly touch screen mounted in the centre stack – the cornerstone of a refreshed interior design across all models. Holden’s frugal 3.0 litre SIDI V6 now achieves economy of 9.1 litres of fuel per 100 kilometres in the official ADR81/02 test. The two per cent improvement adds to the 13 per cent fuel economy gain made in September last year when Spark Ignition Direct Injection engine technology was introduced to the Commodore range.

 The 3.6 litre SIDI V6 used to power premium Commodore models makes average fuel economy gains of more than three per cent by while all luxury and performance models powered by Holden’s Gen IV V8 improve on average by more than six per cent. A first for an Australian-made car, Series II models powered by the 3.0 litre SIDI V6 and 6.0 litre V8 engines will have flex-fuel capability, allowing them to run on Bio-ethanol, E10, Unleaded, Premium or any combination in between.
The Redline Edition Calais V-Series and SS V-Series sedan, Sportwagon and Ute will take up top positions in Holden’s updated VE Series II range, to be launched later this month. Intended for enthusiast drivers, Redline Edition models offer high-level braking and sports handling capabilities to match their powerful 6.0-litre V8 credentials.
