It was for the first time, the locally produced vehicle had been equipped with state-of-the-art technology, with an accent on the driver-oriented features and safety.
The car included a semi-automatic parallel and perpendicular parking, with the driver controlling the speed and the car controlling the steering. If the drivers unintentionally went out of the lane, the car’s warning system would let them know.
Even though General Motors did not have the best reputation for the cars’ interiors, with this model, they proved that they were working on upgrading, to reach a more premium feeling and look.
The car is built on the Zeta platform, but with significant style changes. The front and rear ends are completely redesigned, making the wagon look modern and more sophisticated, compared to the simple VE. The hood was redesigned to allow the integration of the new pedestrian protection.
The interior got changed as well, coming with a modern dashboard, steering wheel, seats and trim panels. New equipment was brought to the Commodore, including an 8-inch infotainment system, enhanced voice recognition, electric parking brake with auto-release, hill-hold and hill-start start assist, LED daytime running lights, blind spot monitoring, keyless entry and start, forward collision alert and lane departure warning.
