Note: this article will be updated through the week as the media event concludes.

Holden's VF Commodore is here at last, replacing the VE range and bringing a raft of styling changes, new technologies and sharpened pricing.

Never shy to embrace a marketing opporunity, Holden has had the new-car market on a drip-feed of VF news over the past year.

In 2012 the carmaker revealed plans for new weight-saving materials, and recent months have seen details of the new Commodore's advanced safery features.

Earlier this month, Holden finally released detailed pricing and feature lists, from the new Evoke entry model, through to the luxury Calais V and the sporting SS-V Redline.

If you're in the market for a new family car, check out our concise price and features list below, and watch for our First Drive Review in the coming hours.
