According to reports out of Australia, the next-generation Holden Commodore will likely be built in China.

Details are limited but rumors suggest Holden and Buick had an agreement to share a sedan based on the 2017 Commodore. Holden was set to design the car, while production would occur in Australia and China. However, GM's decision to end Holden production in Australia means China could be the sole producer of the model.

Little is known about the car itself but News Corp Australia says it will be a front-wheel drive sedan with a four-cylinder engine. Holden employees are now reportedly fighting for an optional V6.

Insiders also revealed the next-generation Commodore will have European-inspired styling with a lower roofline and a sleeker profile. It will reportedly be offered exclusively as a sedan that measures approximately five meters (16.4 feet) long.
