    Inside looks very impressive to me.
    You have got to admit, auto park assist across the entire range should address the average joe's complaints that the car is too big and difficult to park.
    The cluster center screen looks like it has some more smarts in it.
    The new Infotainment system looks like the same setup they are using in the Camaro, and new stingray Corvette.
    Lane departure warning, and front collision avoidance systems are pretty technically advanced. (If the front collision system uses active braking, then thats going to be fantastic !).

    Looks ok, back is a little simple though. Will wait next weekend for the SS to get released (sneak peaks in the intro of the front bar were shown I think)...

    Just wonder how much of those features will make it to the base model....

    car has very impressive features like park assist, lane departure warning and front collision and all that other stuff but I dont not like the look of it at all just looks like a big cruze or something.

    Some other goodish news for us VE owners,
    The doors look like they are carry over (They dont have the creases shown in a lot of the photo shop jobs).
    Which may mean (I say may, you never know until you measure things up), be able to swap the front end (Fenders, bonnet, bar, lights, etc) over to the VE models.
    Rear end looks like this is a big no no though.

    To be honest, I know what my next car is going to be :)
    (Though it will be a couple of years before I upgrade)

    haha yeah might have to get the one of the 2016 versions before they give us the new one. ( which reports are saying will be FWD 4cl) but i think all of the the technology is amazing it makes the ve now look like a vt in regards of refinement and quality. all the tech is amazing (exept that stupid park button instead of a hand brake :bomb: ) lets hope the sport versions will be good too. so Zerone will you be upgrading your VE2 interior to VF? hahaha it would look awesome

    I like it, looks 20x better than my work car, which happens to be a Calais V. Rear end doesn't look as fat. Which people have been bitching over since the VE came out.

    Overall I think it's a step in the right direction.

    It's features list is impressive though.

    ye it looks nice..... but meh, its abit mundane, nothing popping out to make it look 'aggresive' as he said it was styled to...
    technology side of things sounds fantastic though, hopefully the iq system has developed leaps and bounds

    I just love it.

    Body style looks fantastic.

    The VE ran far too long (almost 7 years). I just hope this is not the last model Australian built commodore.

    Highly doubt ute and sportwagon are going to see many/if any changes to their rear ends, the video from the unveiling where they show the test mules driving through mountains you can see a sportwagon, and the rear lights look the same..... :|

    i think it looks great and the features bring it into line with other large sedans and its good to see it get head up display as its a great feature.

    styling wise its a nice design but i think they could have picked a better launch colour like the 2 picture i found on the Wheels website or in white.

    To me the VE has been out a bit to long and style wise is dated a lot looking at it compared to this and for the people saying it looks to much like a cruze or a camry need to have there eyes checked. Most car companies these days already have vehicles that look similar like with mitsubishi and how almost every model has the lancer front end and how subaru have the same box ugly front across all models except for the dated wrx.

    This is why I am selling my VE and sticking to my VK now. A car is no longer a car to drive, it's a luxurious computer that drives for you whilst you play with the computer screen and rest of it. Your only slightly human controlled driving experience would be if you drive manual. And even then all the multiplate clutches promote slippage, soft gear changes and hard as he'll to stall. Power steering is the only luxury I really care for.

    GM are after a car that can compete on the world stage. With the VF, they will. The VE S2 began to look like a car that could do that, but the VF is worlds ahead.

    One thing I don't really like is the grille, but I expect something sportier and aggressive for the SS/SV6. I reckon I'll be upgrading in a few years.
