It’s going to be the last in a long line of large, Australian-built and designed wagons, so the SV6 has a lot to deliver if it wants to live up to the weight of expectation.

Before we even get behind the wheel, we want to love the 2016 Holden Commodore SV6 Sportwagon. As you know by now, the days of CarAdvice testing Aussie-built cars are coming to an end, and these Commodore wagons are the last in a long line of local manufacturing tradition.

I’m the first to lament the imminent demise of the large sedan (and indeed wagon) in Australia. In the ’70s, and into the ’80s for that matter, sedans and wagons – most of them locally built – were a mainstay on Australian roads. Pick any corner of this vast continent, and you’d find them motoring families to and fro. They still make so much sense too, despite the fact that the buying public doesn’t love them the way it once did. The fact that local manufacturing is coming to an end then, is one crystal clear reason why we really want to love this SV6 wagon.

After a week behind the wheel though, it didn’t quite turn out that way…

As tested here, the 2016 Holden Commodore SV6 Sportwagon starts from $41,490 plus the usual on-road costs. The automatic transmission is standard. Our test model is devoid of options, so what you see here, is what you get. The most obvious comparison – in size terms at least – would be the , which starts from $41,690 in entry-level 162TSI trim. The Superb impresses every time we test it, so the SV6 has some work to do to live up to that standard.

Read about some

The SV6 is a step up from the Evoke grade and as such, extra equipment highlights include: a 3.6-litre SIDI V6 engine, automatic transmission, sports styling, LED daytime running lights, Sportec/cloth seats, Blind Sport Alert, Reverse Cross Traffic Alert, chrome exhaust tip, full-size spare wheel, new 18-inch alloy wheel design, new front fascia and grille design and a new tail lamp design.

One of the main bugbears (in terms of driving) with the SV6 we’ll get to in more detail in a minute is the engine. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend a , but conversely, this V6 failed to excite us during our test period. On paper though, the numbers stack up relatively impressively.

The engine generates 210kW and 350Nm and is backed by a six-speed automatic transmission. The 71-litre fuel tank promises genuine touring ability on the open road, with the claimed ADR fuel use at 9.3L/100km. On test, mainly around town, we used an indicated 12.9L/100km. That figure starts to drop well into single figures on the freeway though, once you’re cruising, so if you cover long distances, the SV6 is a contender.
