Holden's next-generation peformance Commodore has been previewed by Buick.

A leaked image of the Buick Regal GS bound for the Chinese market previews the look of the range-topping V6-powered Commodore, which will sit above the predominantly four-cylinder range. The image shows the V6 getting a unique front bumper and alloy wheels to give it a sportier appearance to go with its more powerful engine.

Power comes from a 3.6-litre V6 which produces 230kW and 370Nm, which is well short of the current Commodore SS and its 304kW V8, and is expected to be paired exclusively to a nine-speed automatic transmission.

Holden has not revealed what badge the V6 Commodore will wear, but the previous Holden Insignia model carried the VXR name, a reference to General Motor's British brand Vauxhall. Another possibility is SV6, which is worn by the current and former Australian-made Commodores.

What's certain is it won't wear the SS badge, which Holden is retiring with the V8 engine.

The sporty Commodore is expected to get sports seats and a flat-bottom steering wheel among the design touches.

Holden and Buick were instrumental in General Motor's decision to develop a V6 engine for this new generation Commodore/Regal/Insignia. German division Opel, which led the development on the car, originally wanted a strictly four-cylinder range.

Holden will compete with a turbocharged V6 version of the Commodore in the Supercars racing series, replacing the current V8, but it is understood a road-going version of the same Cadillac-sourced engine does not fit inside the road car's engine bay.
