Holden Series II Berlina International Sedan And Sportwagon Announced

Mike Stevens | Nov 17, 2010

Holden has announced availability of the Series II Berlina International, a special edition variant available in both sedan and Sportwagon body styles.

Adding $9500 in value (RRP), the Series II Berlina International special edition includes leather seat trim, twin-spoke 18-inch alloy wheels and a rear-view camera.

“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,” Holden Director of Marketing Philip 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."

As with the rest of the Series II Commodore range, the Berlina International is powered by Holden's 190kW 3.0 litre SIDI V6 petrol engine, its flex-fuel capability allowing it to run on bio-ethanol (E85), E10, unleaded, premium or any combination between.

Fuel consumption for the SIDI V6 is rated at 9.1 l/100km for the sedan model.

    It looks as if the "International" has found a permanent spot in the Commodore line up and all they are doing is continuing on from the VE International which was quite popular

    Bought this brand new less than 12 months ago. Paid $38,990 (sedan). Great car with the leather, reversing camera etc. But already got issues with the UNO joints in the tail shaft, numerous issues with the Bluetooth connectivity, the IQ System (freezes, restarts, resets itself, won't turn on/off at times..the list goes on), also numerous issues with the Stability Control - automatically turns off as I'm driving, beeping at me 'error'. Have taken it back to Holden for all these issues about 8 times now. They "can't find any problems with the car at all so can't resolve the issues". Will never recommend This for anyone to buy it. This is the 4th car we have owned from brand new (1st was a holden, 2nd was a Toyota Camry, 3rd was a Ford, we still have both the Toyota and Ford - NEVER HAD A SINGLE ISSUE WITH THOSE - sold the 1st holden years ago as it had numerous issues, bought this thinking they've "upped their quality" but apparently not!) We are selling it privately and buying a new car through a different dealership.
