For 2015, the strong-selling Commodore range picks up minor cosmetic tweaks, new features and revised steering across the range.
Performance fans also get a treat, with SS V Redline automatic models now equipped with wheel-mounted paddle shifters.
“Although VF is only 17 months old, we are committed to keeping the product fresh and giving customers what they want - this is the essence of any customer-oriented company and our focus on being the most customer-centric brand in Australia,” Holden boss Gerry Dorizas said.
Styling tweaks are mostly limited to the sports sedans, which pick up a gloss-black rear valance, while the SS V models also get new split-rim black 19-inch alloy wheels.
Two vivid new colours are also available, in the form of ‘Jungle Green’ (sports models only) and ‘Some Like It Hot Red’ (range-wide).
Aside from paddle-shifters for the auto-equipped SS V Redline, this model also gets a handful of interior changes, picking up a jet-black cabin theme and optional titanium highlights.
All models now get an on-screen guide for the reversing camera.
Holden has also enhanced the Electronic Power Steering systems of each model line in the 2015 Commodore range, depending on the specification.
For the Evoke, Calais, Calais V and Caprice V, Holden has introduced a ‘Touring’ tune for the steering, while the SV6, SS and SS V models get a ‘Sport’ setup.
The sharpest steering, Holden's 'Sport & Competitive' tune, is reserved for the flagship SS V Redline.
Holden promises an enhanced on-centre feel and precision to the steering of each range.
The SS range will also be lead by the new Craig Lowndes SS V Special Edition model, announced in September and available now from $57,990.
Elsewhere, Holden has also now packed a full-size spare alloy wheel in with the SV6 and Calais models, replacing the tyre sealant and compressor kit previously featured.
And for 2015, Holden's LPG fuel system will no longer be available for the SV6 (while Ford will continue to offer its EcoLPi XR6) or the Caprice.
Likewise, the Caprice range has now been streamlined into a single Caprice V spec, available in V6 and V8 form.
The Commodore range remains far-and-away the best selling large car under $70,000 in Australia, with 23,784 sales year-to-date.
That represents a 72.3 percent share of its segment, compared to 4,964 sales and 15.1 percent for the Falcon and 3555 sales and 10.8 percent for the Aurion.
