    300C was my first impression too.

    The back also looks slightly astra'ish as well.

    The ute is pure sex.

    I love the look of the wagon! Unsure about the ute..
    I'm guessing they would both have terrible rear vision - seems to be blind spots everywhere.

    I love the ute too. The jury is still out on the wagon for me - it looks like the boot space has suffered a bit compared to the current vz model

    Yeah they should have stuck with the long wheel base platform for the wagon. I was considering a VE wagon in the future, but now I don't really know what to do because I doubt they will be much bigger than a legnum

    is there a long wheel base used anymore at holden on the VE chassis? The statesman looks shorter/similar size to the base models.

    Very nice, but the wagon looks more like a hatchback.

    The Maloo is just tuff .... 6 litres ... uggghhhh.... :D

    FYI guys, the 300C wagon is actually a Dodge Magnum, which has a different face. They slapped a 300C face on it before selling it here.

    I have heard the Dodge Wagon called the "Reverse Tardis" massive on the outside and tiny on the inside.
