It is becoming increasingly clear the next Holden Commodore will be a German-sourced.

At the Geneva Motor Show yesterday, the head of GM’s Opel unit, Karl-Thomas Neumann, told media the Open Insignia will be the replacement for the Australian-build large car.

“It’s very soon coming,” Neumann told journalists. “[We will sell] as many as possible. The Australians will like this car a lot.”

Insignia is already here in VXR sports form, and the decision to replace Commodore with an Insignia-based vehicles would follow plans to replace the Cruze with the Opel Astra.

The Insignia is built in front and four-wheel-drive, with four-cylinder petrol and diesel powertrains, as well as a turbo-charged V6 petrol.

It is built as both a sedan and wagon.
