The acclaimed VF Commodore has another trophy to add to its cabinet. For the second year running, VF Commodore SV6 has won the well-respected, Australia’s Best Cars award for ‘Best Large Car Under $70,000’.
Australia’s Best Cars judges praised its exceptional value for money, award winning in-car infotainment system* and its engaging performance. Particular credit was also directed at the Commodore’s responsive ride and handling which was developed and tuned at Holden’s Lang Lang Proving Ground in Australia.

The Commodore SV6 also distinguished itself from its rivals through its superior fuel economy and cost of ownership. The SV6’s frugal, yet powerful V6 engine can deliver fuel economy of just 9.0 litres per 100 kilometres, and Holden’s attractive Capped Price Servicing and Warranty offers remain some of the best in the industry.
Holden’s Executive Director – Corporate Affairs, George Svigos said that for VF Commodore to win the award for a second year running reflected its exciting performance and excellent value for money.
“The VF Commodore is the most advanced car ever built in Australia,” Mr. Svigos said.
“The SV6 is a great looking car and it offers exhilarating power in the form of our 3.6 litre V6 engine and well-connected in-car technology with MyLink#. It is also one of the safest cars around, boasting a maximum 5-star ANCAP rating and ISOFIX child seat anchorage system.”
Australia’s Best Cars awards bring together experienced vehicle test judges from state motoring clubs across Australia to decide the final award winners. After extensive testing, judges award points based on 18 criteria including vehicle handling, cost and environmental performance.
This is the second year the VF Commodore SV6 has won the award after being described last year as the “best car ever made in Australia”, when it defeated the Peugeot 508 and the Toyota Aurion. This year it defeated the Hyundai Genesis and Skoda Superb.
