Holden has prepared a Commodore Black special edition in Australia for the sedan, Sportswagon and ute body styles which all receive extra goodies.

As the name implies, the special Commodore gets a series of black exterior accents such as the grille, spoiler lip (sedan only), and the surrounds of the daytime running lights. In addition, the cars get Black edition badges and ride on bespoke 18-inch alloys featuring a two-tone finish. For an extra $1,000, the sedan and ute body styles can be upgraded to a larger 20-inch Baretta alloy wheel set.

There’s not much going on inside the cabin, but Holden is adding red contrasting stitching on the seats and will sell the Black edition with a color head-up display, satellite navigation, and front “Black Edition” carpet floor mats.

You can get all of these goodies on the Commodore VFII SV6 and SS models for an additional $1,000 over the regular versions. The two come generously equipped with the eight-inch MyLink infotainment system, rearview camera, auto park assist, and reverse traffic alert. Holden mentions the Black edition will not be offered with leather upholstery, not even as an optional equipment.

As a refresher, local production of the Commodore will come to an end by late 2017, but the name will solider on for an import model which will have a front-wheel-drive layout. The car in question is going to be the next-gen Opel Insignia set to be unveiled this October at the Paris Motor Show.
