2017 Holden Astra sedan review

Read the full article here. With Holden winding up local manufacturing, it wasn’t just the Commodore that would no longer be produced in Australia. The Holden Cruze also met a similar fate, with a little over 126,000 units produced locally over five years. Replacing the locally produced Cruze is a brand new one, built off a global architecture and the D2 platform, which is shared with the Holden Astra hatch...

2017 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 drops camo

The Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 has been spied during testing again, but this latest prototype gives us a better look at the new high-performance 'Vette. Although this car is clad head to toe in camouflage war paint, it doesn't feature the extensive car bra fitted to an earlier prototype. As such, we can see that the ZR1 will have a bonnet with an impressively sized bulge, as well as extra vents...

2017 Opel Ampera - 2016 Paris Motor Show

Finally an affordable, EV city car with a decent 500km range. The Opel Ampera (Chevrolet Bolt) was designed in Australia but sadly is at this stage a left-hand drive only proposition. It shows what can be done however, and we look forward to seeing what GM can produce down the line.

Holden: new V8 sports car "will blow your socks off"

With the end of local Commodore production a little over a year away, there has been a good deal of uncertainty about which model in GM's global stable will debut as the hero performer in the Holden line-up. Hopes appeared to dim earlier this year, when new GM global design chief and former Australian styling boss, Mike Simcoe, told CarAdvice he would steer well clear of discussing the topic...

2016 Le Mans 24 Hour race report: The greatest motorsport show on Earth can also be the cruelest

To an outsider, the class formulas and regulations applied to the World Endurance Championship (WEC) can seem both baffling and impenetrable. It’s believed that Stephen Hawking once sat down with the rule book that governs the top-tier LMP1 class at Le Mans, only to shake his head in defeat and go back to something far more simple like quantum physics...

The Equinox, previously spied last month, was this time caught testing alongside the Opel Meriva and Opel Insignia this week. This strengthens suspicions that the Equinox will make the jump to join the Opel family, taking on the Antara badge...
