2016 Holden VFII Commodore - bimodal exhaust sound-off

Read the article here. One of the key selling points of the new Holden Commodore VF-Series II is the bimodal exhaust fitted to LS3-powered SS models. A V8 engine is nothing new for the SS, but does the new exhaust make much of a difference? We put a VF-Series I car up against a VF-Series II so you can hear the difference  ...

Chevrolet Spark : Detroit Auto Show 2016

Read the article here. The all-new Spark – which was revealed at the Seoul and New York auto shows in April, and is sold in most markets as a Chevrolet – is quite a different beast to the car it replaces. It has a longer wheelbase, but its height has been reduced by about 40 millimetres...

2015 Holden Colorado Z71 Quick Review

Read the article here. The updated Holden Captiva made its public debut here at the Star Wars: The Force Awakens media event held in the Sydney Opera House Forecourt.

January 26 is one of our great nation's most contentious days of the year – Australia Day. Now being the simple folk we are at CarAdvice, we'll leave debate about this country's origins to others, and instead focus on enjoying this big island we all live on. Plus, we can use the day as an excuse to have some fun in cars...

Ute comparison: Ford Ranger v Holden Colorado v Isuzu D-Max v Mazda BT-50 v Mitsubishi Triton v Nissan Navara v Toyota HiLux v Volkswagen Amarok

Utes, pick-ups, trucks, dual-cabs, double-cabs – whatever you call them, these big four-door 4x4 haulers are massively important to buyers in Australia. The 4x4 utility segment has boomed in recent years, and it remains one of the strongest parts of the Australian new car market – indeed, roughly one in every 10 vehicles sold in this country will be a four-wheel-drive commercial vehicle...

Citroen DS3 DSport v Holden Astra GTC Sport v Hyundai Veloster SR Turbo v Kia Pro_cee'd GT : Comparison Review

The finest mid-$30k 'warm' hatchback on the market? The Kia Pro_cee'd staked its claim 12 months ago, dispatching Hyundai’s poster boy Veloster SR Turbo and Renault’s potent and racy Megane RS265 Sport as the best all-rounder in the sweet spot bridging humble $20k-something conveniences and properly hot $40k-plus hatchbacks...

Camaro or Corvette to take on Mustang locally?: Chevrolet exec tight-lipped on Holden's new V8 sports car

1999 Holden Vectra Gl Review

This car has been through hail, snow/black ice, attempted theft, long country travel, and metropolitan mayhem. Through all of this it has not given me any drama. I bought this car in 2008 for a mere $6000 second hand from a gentleman in Sydney. At this point in time I wanted it to last me the 5 years of University so I could then save up for a nicer new car...

1983 Holden Commodore SL/e Review

This is a car for an enthusiast. A lover of anything with presence. And, someone with the desire to frequent the servo, regularly. The interior of this vehicle would rival the opulence usually associated with a sheiks luxurious jaunt through the desert on a clear Arabian night. The velour seats are soft (much like a lounge suite), don't really offer much support and become incredibly hot when driving in summer...

2015 Holden Trax Ltz Review

We are an older couple who have, for many years, been looking for a vehicle that is not too big and sits at a height that makes it easy to get in and out of. That rules out most vehicles on the road today and seldom if ever do car makers and reviewers consider the needs of older people...

2010 Holden Cruze CD Review

Just reached 90,000 kms and transmission needs replacing. Spends more time in the workshop since 50,000kms on the clock. Should have been recalled as a dud and not allowed on the market. A waste of my money and time. Probably the reason Holden closing in Aus. It,s only good point is the comfortable drive and holds the road well...
