2018 Holden Commodore prototype review

I have been blissfully unaware that Holden will call the new Insignia a Commordore in two years time. Haven driven a VE Series II and potentially will be driving a VF in a couple of weeks, there is a huge hat that this car has to wear. Whether Aussies will take to it remains to…
