Today is the day. The last bolt has been tightened on the last Australian-made V6, with Holden today following Ford into ending local engine production.

2017 Holden Astra review

Read the full article here. Apparently this is a big deal – it’s the 2017 Holden Astra, the seventh generation model to bear that nameplate to be sold in Australia. From its early roots as a badge-engineered offshoot of the Nissan Pulsar to the glory days of the late 1990s and early 2000s where the Holden Astra ran second only to the Toyota Corolla in the small car segment with 28,500 sales (in 2001), the new model is, the brand claims, vital...

2017 Holden Astra pricing and specs

The all-new 2017 Holden Astra is here, but it isn’t going for a cut-throat, cut-price position in the busy small car class. That role, previously filled by the Holden Cruze, has been eschewed in favour of a more “premium” positioning for the new European-sourced Astra hatchback...

2017 Holden Astra gets five-star ANCAP safety rating
