Any­one for Twin­ster?

Wheels (Australia) - - Firstdrive­s -

Holden let us loose on the fast gravel cir­cuit at Lang Lang in the Tourer, the Com­modore’s V6 Awd-only re­sponse to the Subaru Out­back. Boast­ing the GKN Twin­ster AWD sys­tem, it sends up to 50 per­cent of drive rear­wards, with torque-vec­tor­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties via twin clutches on the rear axle – one for each wheel (hence the name). Cal­i­brated by Holden in the US, the re­sult is pre­cise and con­trol­lable cor­ner­ing at speed on dirt or in wet or slip­pery con­di­tions, aided by spe­cific sta­bil­ity and trac­tion con­trol tun­ing.
