2016 Holden Commodore SV6 Black Edition Review With Fantastic Brown Accent

for The Past 40 Years The Holden Commodore Has Been The Quintessential Australian Family Car, But In More Recent Generations Like This VF It's Been Getting A Reputation For Being Somewhat Of A Sports Sedan, But To Show That You Don't Need The Stonking 6.2 Liter V8 To Have An Entertaining Family Drive We're Going To Take This Sv 6 Black Edition On An Entertaining Family Drive To Show That It Can Be Well An Entertaining Family Drive Well Before We Hit The Road For Some Well Some Quieter Streets And Better Weather Let's Have A Look At What We've Got Wonder Here Is Holden's LFX 3.6 Liter V6 It's A Pretty Modern Unit You've Got Variable Valve Timing And Direct Injection For More Power And Better Economy It's Not A Bad Lump Either This 210 Kilowatts Around 280 Horsepower And 350 Newton Meters On Tap Have A Look Inside The V6 Drives The Rear Wheels By This 6-speed Automatic Transmission And One Of The Cool Things About A Commodore Is Even Still Option In A 6-speed Manual Now Our Regular Family Is Actually At School Today. So, They're Being Replaced By James And Tom There's Plenty Of Space Back There The Boys Get A Center Armrest Which Also Doubles As A Ski Port Got Cup Holders In A Big Flat Area That They Can Play You Know On There's Matt Pockets Door Bins And Even Air Vents.

So, They're Going To Be Very Comfy The Boots Are 495 Litres, But The Seats Fold Down Other Than Ski Port That Is So, If You Do Need More Room Get The Wagon Alright Boys You're Comfy Yeah Yeah Right Okay Let's Hit The Road And While We Make Our Way To Some More Entertaining Tarmac We Might As Well Cover Off The Basics This Is The 2016 Holden Commodore Sv6 Black Edition Even Those White For Its Name You Get Some Black Trim Components On The Outside A Nice Little Lip Spoiler On The Boot And Some 18-inch Alloy Wheels Inside You Get Holden's Really Cool Color Heads-up Display Navigation On The 8 Inch MyLink Touchscreen Some Nice Red Stitching Around The Cabin And Of Course Being A Special Addition To Get Floor Mats The Rest Of It Is Pretty Standard Commodore Which As We Know Is A Pretty Good Thing And The Commodore Is Still What Is Considered To Be A Large Car Even Though On The Road It Doesn't Feel Overly Big Inside This Stacks And Stacks Of Room Both Up Here In The Sun And For The Guys There In The Back Vision Out The Front Is Really Impressive And Still Out The Back Now Of Course You Get A Commodore In The Sports Wagon Body Style Which Does Hamper That Real Wood Vision A Little Bit, But It Certainly Doesn't Make It A Problem Part Of The Package - On The Sv 6 Is Blind Spot Detection And Rear Cross-traffic Alert As Well. So, You Are Helped By Technology Even, If The Vision Doesn't Help You Already A TS V6 Essentially The Mid Grade Commodore You Got The Evoke At The Bottom End Which Are Basically Well Government Sleep Cars ES V6 For Normal Tables In The SS Above Pretty Much The Only Thing That This Thing Doesn't Get Empowered Seats Everything Else Is Here The Seats Themselves Are Really Nice And Comfortable It's A Combination Of A Suede And A Leather Type Material And They Really Do Work Particularly On Long Touring Miles They're Very Comfy Very Supportive You've Got A Rich And Rate Adjustable On The Back You Got Reach And Make Adjustable On The Steering You Can Get Yourself Into A Really More Comfortable Driving Position Especially For Long-distance Touring Now We Mentioned Navigation On On The MyLink Which Those Come As An Extra Here On The Black Edition It's Not Standard On A Normal Sv 6 It's A $750 Option Which. I Still Think Is A Bit Strange.

So, Goes To Show The Extra Value That You Get Out Of This Pack Which By The Way Is With A Lot Of Attic Transmissions Driveway For Around 40 And There's Plenty Of Other Stuff Too. So, My Link Itself Has Support Not Only Now And As You Get Internet Streaming Audio You've Got Your Bluetooth You've Got Other Media Support As Well It's Not A Bad System Dating A Little Bit See The Navigation Itself Is Quite Good It's Got Traffic, But Some Of The Other Menu Interfaces Aren't Quite As Modern As They Really Could Missus Generally It Works Pretty Well As We Mentioned You've Got Blind Spot Detection Rear Cross-traffic Alert There's A Forward Collision Assistance System And The Heads-up Display That You Get As An Extra On The Black Series Can Display. I Think It's There Are Four Different Types Of Readout Including A Rev Meter And A G-force Meter Which Is Really Good Fun For When Mums Are In The Car Now You Want To Show Off To The Kids This Model Gets Automatic Parking As Well Which For The Commodores Does Both Parallel And Perpendicular Not That.

I Think Anybody Really Should Need It To Do A Perpendicular Parks, But It's Kind Of Cool To Know That It's Set Now As We Head Down The Freeway Here The Commodore Really Is In Its Element On A Cruise This Is A Big Car For A Big Country And I We've Said That Before About The Commodore And About Other Cars, But This Role Of Long Miles Lots Of Comfort Good Road Noise You Can Probably Hear It's Not Overly Noisy Around The Cab A Bit Of Thai Noise Coming From The Front This Model Or A Window, But This Thing Really Does Just Eat Up The Miles Are Some Very Very Comfortable Place To Spend Time You Can Sit Here - For Six Hours At A Time And You Don't Get Tired And You Don't Get Uncomfortable For Me Like. I'm Old Now. I'm Getting A Sore Lower Back It's Really Important To Be Able To To Get Into A Car And Punch Out A Of Four Or Five Hour Drive We Had A Walk Afterwards Now, If Your Consumption Of The V6 While We're Touring As Well Is Actually Pretty Impressive We're Currently Sitting On Around 8 Litres 400 Bit Above What Holden Claims Were Doing 104 Kilometers An Hour, But This Car Has Got A Record Of 6 Point 7 Litres 400 On A Previous Drive While We've Had It In Our Care Which We Got To Say We Were Pretty Impressive The Suspension Tune Of The Commodore 2 For This Kind Of Driving Is Perfectly Designed For Australian Conditions It Sort Of Sits And Bumps Along And You Can Feel It Go Over Interventions In The Road And Changing Surfaces, But It's Really Really Comfortable The Whole Time Southern Samba Doesn't Crash It Just Handles Everything You Throw At It You Do Get A Lot Of Feedback Through The Road.

So, You Know You're Driving The Car, But It's A Very Very Comfortable Car To Tour It Where Are We Going On Our Entertaining Family Drive Well Toulon Down The Spectacular Great Ocean Road 20 For The Kids To See And Do, But Apparently They Do A Cracking All Day Breakfast Right There On The Beach And The Green Ocean Road Itself Is Considered To Be One Of The World's Great Drives It Wines 243 Kilometres From Here In In Torquay All The Way Down To Allen Stood Near Warner Belen Victorious With Some History And We're Only Going As Far As Lawn Which Is About A 50 Kilometer Drive In And To Get Here From Melbourne. So, Far Taken Us A Bit Over An Hour. So, It's A Really Easy Day Trip To Do Alright Well Now We've Had A Chance To Get Away From The Freeways And Highways We're Onto A Nice Twisting Section Of Tomic That Is What The Great Ocean Road Is Famous For Now Handling Wise Coming Through Some Of The Tight Events You Can Really Feel The Weight Of The Commodore It Is A Big Car The Steering Itself Is Weighted Quite Heavily And It Does Feel That You've Got Quite A Lot Of Car Beneath You It Communicates Really Well Though.

So, There's No Lack Of Understanding Of Where The Car Is Going To Be And Actually, If You Get On The Throttle Midway Through A Corner You Can Feel The Rear End Pivot Just That Little Bit To Give You That Nice Grip On Corner Exit It's A Bit More Fun We Can Pop The Automatic Transmission Into A Sports Mode There's No Paddles On The Wheel, But You Can Tip Shift Here, If You Like To, But Just Putting It In Sports Changes Are The Shift Timing And Shift Modes And It Does Make The Car Feel A Little Bit More Responsive Which Is To Say When You Get A Chance To Drive It Along Here The Great Ocean Road Is A Sign Posted Between 60 And 80 Kilometers An Hour And Most Of The Time You Get Stuck Behind Some Turrets And The Roads Opened Up Now We Can Add A Little Bit More Fun And Power Wide The Big B6 Doesn't Come On To Its Peak 210 Kilowatt Power Point Until 6700 Rpm, But All 350 Newton Meters Are Available Nice And Low At Around 2800 Rpm That Said Though You Can Rip The Big Guy Out And It's Actually Quite A Fun Engine To Drive Sort Of From Four-and-a-half Thousand And Up With The Gearbox In A Sport Mode It's Nice And Responsive It's Actually Quite A Lot Of Fun Considering That It's Not The V8 That's Said Your Fuel Economy's Don't Get To Go Right Out The Window When You Start To Rev This Thing Out, But Look It's A Trade-off How Did You Get In Anytime And The Commodore Might Be On The Verge Of Retirement, But It's Pretty Safe To Say That It It's Still Very Popular Every Of A Car That We've Seen On The Road Down Here Today Has Been Another Ve Or VF Platform Coddled There Everywhere Even Over This Slightly Chopped Undulating Tarmac That Changes From We Can Probably Hear Course Chip To Smooth The Repaired Road To Divots All Sorts Of Things The Common We'll Just Eat It All Of It At Stride It Really Is Made For This Kind Of Driving Due To That High Power Bands It Sponsors Only Really In That Kind Of Exciting Range Above 4000 Rpm Low Down To Half Up The Up To Even Over Three And A Half It Can Feel A Little Bit Boggy And Particularly, If You're, If You're Cruising A Neutral Overtakes You Can Be A Little Bit Of A Delay On On Kick Down From The Gearbox, If You're Overtaking Someone, But Again Being On The Wrong Side Of The Road For A Short Amount Of Time As Possible As We Like When We're Doing It Overtake The Commonweal Handles It Really Well All Right Well We're Nearly There Scum Is A Rumbling We're Going To Find Somewhere Nice To Spot For Lunch Now The Boys Have Gone Off To Get Us Some Lunch And As You Can See It's Plenty Of Families And Plenty Of Fun To Be Had Down There There's Actually Plenty Of Fun To Be Had Up Here Too On The Drive Down Place On The Highway And On The Great Ocean Road Itself PS V6 Commodore You Can Really Put A Foot Wrong And We Know It Is Dating In Areas It Is At The End Of Its Life After All You Don't Get Fancy Things Like LED Headlights And Some Of The Other Stuff That You May See On A More Modern Platform, But It's A Car That's Well Economical Practical And Still Just A Little Bit Fun PS V6 Commodore Still Got A Lot Of Life Left In It Now While It Might Not Be The Latest SUV As A Practical Family Car That Works Equally Well As A Sports Sedan Or Even The Other Way Around The 2016 Holden Commodore Sb6 Ensuring That An Australian Car Can Still Be A Great Car For Australia.
