    Thankfully all the Vivas have already gone to BHG heaven.
    Lots of minis & mokes including a G13b powered Sports Sedan, a couple of Swift Gtis, a Goggomobil, Porsche 928S, Polo Gti, BMW 540i, a WRX and a few others.

    Naming it Viva pretty much guaranteed it to be a POS just like the original

    So this is apparently it, undisguised. Has a touch of 6 series Gran Coupe to my eyes around the side profile and rear, which is nice, but the front looks awkward and I'm not loving how much rake it seems to have.

    This is apparently the OPC version, which looks pretty tame for what is supposed to be the hot one:

    Sedan looks rubbish.

    Wagon surprisingly better. Still a bit rubbish, but more like the rubbish when you can't decide if it's rubbish or recycling so chose a bin depending on how full they are.

    Meh. I'm not offended by it.
    Insignia (Vectra) is a car which tries to not offend, it doesn't live in "excited by it" land.
    Captain_Slow, that may be the OPC and tame, but then look at the current Insignia sold by Holden here (also the OPC); pretty-much follows that theme.
    Although I have my doubts over an embiggened car & 3.6 n/a engine keeping-up with the old 2.8TT one.
    Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

    I don't mind the wagon. Level of want depends on how aids ridden the driveline is though.

    Wagon looks like a future merc

    Sedan alot of Mazda Audi.

    If they offer a supercharged version then they may just have something capable of knocking the VRX off its perch......

    Nothing wrong with the nopix' family-car which is fitted with 35-profile tyres.
    Captain_Slow said this is the OPC spec-level, which is supposed to be the "sporty" one, the equivalent of an R badge for VW or a Commode SSV Redline ... 3/6L n/a means Holden aren't gonna dare call it an SS though.

    They reckon force-feeding won't be offered & they can't make it fit (commercially).
    The Magna will continue unchallenged.

    I drove a LR Discovery Sport over the weekend which has I think a similar AWD system - ie generally FWD, but with clutch packs able to send drive to the rear and split it left/right. It had a display where you could see where the drive was going, and it did spend a surprising amount of time sending drive to the rear wheels. Having said that, without the display I wouldn't have known.

    I like the wagon, especially from the rear, not so much the front grille. The sedan (hatchback?) looks too slopy/short at the rear.

    Sedan kinda looks like a Hyundai I45. I will wait until I've seen it in the flesh before a Yay/Nay .

    Sedan too stubby in the rear.

    That's the lift back hatch, there's also a proper sedan being developed for Buick.

    The rough shape of the headlights and front grill remind me of a Tesla a bit. Except ugly. Well done GM!



    It just does not look like a nice looking car to me. Not that I'll ever be in the market for one, so I guess they don't care about my opinion.

    The front end just looks wrong. It's got this big huge mass behind the a-pillar, but then this skinny little bonnet with small wheels in the wrong position.

    Seriously though, if they're shooting an ad for them and have chosen to use these dark colours, they're also suspect on the styling. Dark colours hide the nuances in the shape of a car. That's why it is a shame to see a true looker of a car in black, it hides the shape and curves.

    It's like the US styling department insisted on what it'd look like ... it's got that cab-forward look that never works, and the rear has that unfortunate look which exists in the rear of way too many US cars:

    Weight, dimensions, engine options, all seem near identical to Mondeo / Mazda 6. Time to get a VF III SS and hold onto it forever like a mad bogan.

    Or maybe a VF II, because it exists?

    It doesn't feel like a Commodore at all. Agree with above comments. Front end proportions awful.
