    It would need to be a lot different from the bland and unimmaginative VY & VZ's interior before I'd be getting excited, but the exterior looks good from the magazine images.

    But, if it's based on an Audi A6, it means the VE will be a fair bit smaller than the VT-VZ platform.

    goddamn, im surprised it took this long to get that pic up here, the mag has been on the shelves for a good 2 weeks now. come on, wheres the scanned pages from it? id do it, but i couldnt be stuffed buying the mag just to scan the pics. and i cant save from the scanner at work. anyway, i think it looks pretty good for another computer generated picture.

    um...its based on an audi...this move by Holden is questionable. Why is holden going Euro...its a commodore dammit! a commodore! It may kill holden in the sales...(look what happened to Ford's AU!!!) I hope that doesnt happen...unless of couse the rival Ford will take the same path as Holden and base their new (if planning) Falcon on a Euro car...but thats just me.

    AS I SAID THIS IS ONLY A COMPUTER GENERATED PICTURE FROM THE LATEST WHEELS MAG... NOT 100% accurate... Dont think they know everything... cause they dont! Holden is realeasing more than 2 New Models in the range including the new Viva (which 2 me looks like a Daewoo Lanos),
    I Can't wait till i see sum ford pics?!
    If anyone 'HAPPENS' to come across sum plz post :flame:
    The Vt was My favourite model to be realeased on2 the market, Vx was the down point for Holden... Holden should be able to come out on top :whistling

    from what i've heard from "someone" workin on the VE is that even tho they're only computer generated pics, they are very accurate (not sure about the lack of wing on the SS, looks great, doubt they'd do it)


    as for holden taking cues fron europe, this is absolutely the opposite... the only thing i've heard about taking after audi etc is their target quality, eg panel fitment (as mentioned in that article), pretty much all holdens imports from europe are being replaced with korean models, which apparently will have more of a holden "family face" to them (as mitsubishi failed to to succesfully).

    i don't know how this will affect quality or price, but i'd say its a big move (especially to replace the Barina and Astra!)

    YeP i agree wif him The ve isnt made completly out of the audi but it is taking design motives so, maybe more quality can come out or sumthin..!? tell us wat u think anywayz! I WANT SUM FORD PICS IF THERE IS ANY... :hit: VE is going to be very nice CAUSE ITS A HOLDEN and most holdens ive seen are mad appart from SUM* sh*t looking vt's and vy' getting done up to make it sumthin its not... (eg:exec=senator) looks like crap unless u do it up using the proper parts..but thats my 2 cents worth..

    They said the VY wouldnt make it, They said the VY was holdens AU. But hey wern't they wrong;).
    Holden has always had a thing for Audi cars most people like Audi cars cause they are nice. Holden like them they made the torana on it Small light powerful.

    But that VE pic. No wing body kit fog lights etc. HSV will have trouble working on that VE pic;)

    i've noticed a lot of similarity in the shape of the boots (see attached) the vx has a round back like some audis, and the vy has a > kinda shape if you know what i mean.....maybe just look at the pics
