Behold, the all-important VF Commodore.
Holden has just revealed the Calais V version of its crucial new model that is expected in local showrooms this June.
It says the new Commodore has grown-up, is sleek and sophisticated on the outside and has premium feel on the inside.
The Adelaide-made car has lost the blunt and brutal design of the VE Commodore, taking on a shape with more lines and curves that designers refer to as ‘organic’.
Holden has also completely overhauled the cheap and dated interior, which was a source of criticism for VE, replacing it with a cabin that is the clear highlight of the new model.
Wheels was given a special preview of the car this week and can report that these pictures don’t lie, the new Calais is the most luxurious Australian vehicle ever produced.
