Eagle-eyed reader filmed the Holden VF Commodore convoy in Wollongong.

Anthony Fera was quick to get his phone camera rolling when he spotted a convoy of the new Holden VF Commodores in Wollongong yesterday.

"I was standing at the top of Crown St Mall in Wollongong waiting to cross the lights when I spotted a new black car that stood out from behind the bus," Fera says.

"First I noticed the new the new slot vent behind the front wheel which made it look like a Jaguar. Then i noticed some more similar cars at the back of the bus and thought I'd better grab some video --  this is a convoy of new VF Commodores.

"This all happened in a few seconds but as a HSV owner I was aware of the new VF look and know the cars are out and about testing."

Fera says he is impressed with the new look of the VF. "It's more upmarket and does stand out on the road. I know there has been some criticism that it looks like too much like the VE -- but really, you still want a Holden to look like a Holden," he says.

Anthony's sighting comes nearly a month ahead of the VF's June official launch, and the Sedan, Sportswagon, and Ute body styles will arrive simultaneously for the first time since the VZ model in 2004.

The VF represents a significant restyle to the historic Commodore nameplate, with only the doors, roof and glasshouse carrying over from the current VE.

An all-new interior also features, with Auto Park Assist standard on all models, and features like head-up display, blind spot monitor, forward collision alert and lane departure warning will be available for the first time.

Full details and pricing of the new VF range will be announced at the start of June.

  • I saw a couple of LHD development cars the other day going through Wodonga, both had Chevy badges. One looked like the Statesman/Interceptor and the other a standard VF. Probably should have taken a pic, I was thinking they would have been old news though.

  • Looks great! My VE Series II is an outstanding car and I look forward to upgrading to an even better one. If the Commodore has one major fault it is the lack of a full fold down rear seat in the sedan - my wife's Honda Jazz can carry more than my Commodore. Please Holden - do the right thing!
