    VY Lumina
    On Wikipedia when looking at VY commodores there is no mention of the Lumina model apart from the chev lumina which is a completely different car. Where does it place with the other trim levels of VY commodores and what features does it have that the executive doesn't have?

    thanks

    That's an earlier Lumina for the states, in later models they were Commodore based in a heap of countries, there's a bunch of them in the Middle-East. AFAIK though it was pretty close if not the same standard as Exec with maybe a couple of cosmetic extras.

    Chevrolet Lumina Coupe S (Monaro CV6)
    Here in the UAE, the Lumina is just the Commodore/Monaro with different badges and left hand drive. If you look to the left you will see my 2002 Lumina S Coupe (3.8 V6, Monaro V2 with no supercharger). The coupe just came as S (V6) and SS (V8)

    The yellow aeroplane is a Russian Antonov An2, BTW

    VY Wagon
    Below is an advertisement from the time to help with specifications. The wagon cost extra than the sedan at the time.

    A CD Stacker could be optioned. I can't remember if 4 airbags was an option (which I have). I had factory FE2 fitted to my wagon which I still have.

    The Lumina was just an optioned Executive at a typical saving around $3500, regardless of model. Air, auto, power windows and rear spoiler for sedans, with alloys from a higher spec earlier model. The VY 1 in the ad above has VX "S" wheels. I think later Luminas had VX Calais rims on VY2 and VY2 Calais rims on VZ. They were all good value as they offered the options that most Exec buyers requested.
    As each new base model was released, the standard equipment levels rose, so each new Lumina had additional options such as cruise or upgraded sound. It got harder to equip the Lumina by the VZ due to the higher standard spec.
