The sports-flavoured RS-V sits in the middle of the all-new ZB Commodore line-up, with a list price of $46,990 in Liftback guise or $49,190 as a Sportwagon. 

Sitting a full $9700 above the RS, the RS-V adds leather seats, heated front seats, paddle shifters a larger 8.0-inch multimedia screen with built-in GPS navigation system and DAB+ digital radio, a colour head-up display, wireless phone charger, interior ambient lighting, upgraded Hi Per strut suspension and a sportier rear bumper.

The RS-V is only available with the 235kW/381Nm 3.6-litre V6 engine and all-wheel drive, which also means a nine-speed torque converter auto. 

Official combined fuel consumption is 8.9L/100km for the Liftback, or 9.1 for the Sportwagon. The V6 will impressively deliver its best on regular 91RON unleaded.
