The more luxurious $40,990 Calais sits toward the upper end of the all-new ZB Commodore line-up, and sits $11,000 beneath the Calais-V. The Calais is limited to the Liftback bodystyle unless you opt for the off-road flavoured Tourer. 

The Calais sits closer to the LT on features, but adds leather trim, front seat heaters, 8.0-inch multimedia screen with built-in GPS navigation system and DAB+ digital radio, wireless phone charging, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and 18-inch alloys. 

A 191kW/350Nm 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine with a nine-speed torque converter auto is the default drivetrain, while a 125kW/400Nm 2.0-litre turbo-diesel with an eight speed torque converter auto will set you back an extra $3000.

Calais official combined fuel consumption with the petrol engine is 7.6L/100km, while the diesel drops this to 5.8L/100km. The petrol engine needs premium 95RON unleaded to do its best.
