2015 Holden Commodore Review

The Holden Commodore has been one of the best-selling Australian cars for years. Does the latest iteration live up to the Commodore nameplate?

Ford Falcon XR8 v Holden Commodore SS : Comparison review

History dictates that (power) wars don’t end in draws. When the Ford Falcon XR8 arrived in 1992 it made an identical 165kW of power to the Holden Commodore SS and with 388Nm of torque listed a crucial 3Nm ahead. From either side of the trenches the two 5.0-litre engines threw grenades until Holden used Yank weaponry in 1999 with the 220kW 5...

V8 Supercars and the real world

The end of the 2014 V8 Supercars season is almost upon us, following a cracking (and controversial) Bathurst 1000 that saw Ford win for the second year in a row and Nissan claim its first podium finish in the great race since the Skyline GT-R’s infamous 1992 victory...

Ford Falcon v Holden Commodore Evoke : Comparison review

Once upon a time, if you worked for a big company that gave you a fleet car, chances are it was one of this pair’s ancestors. Entry versions of the Ford Falcon and Holden Commodore — Forte and Executive anyone? — dominated the nation’s car parks and driveways, a source of national pride and limited choice in equal portions...

Holden Commodore SV6 Sportwagon v Skoda Octavia RS : Comparison review

Traditional family wagons are almost a niche product these days, given how few are sold compared with SUV models of varied sizes. The Holden Commodore SV6 Sportwagon and Skoda Octavia RS are here for the SUV-rejectors, however. Each is priced close to $40,000 and aim to rival high-riding faux-offroaders for practicality then trounce them for driving enjoyment...

2015 Holden Commodore SV6 Review

I was looking to update my VT with over 300,000km on the clock. Hard decisions had to be made as I wanted LPG and a wagon, both of which come as auto only. I also wanted some towing ability which meant a Commodore or Falcon was a logical choice. I also test drove an ecolpi XR6 which was great to drive...

2015 Holden Commodore SV6 Review

I have been given the Holden VF SV6 Auto as a fleet car. My previous fleet car was a Ford XR6 LPI. Firstly, lets get to driver comfort. The drivers seat and steering wheel is better in the Ford. The drivers position in the Ford has a higher position over the bonnet, the relationship between peddles, seat distance and height and steering wheel is better...

2005 Holden Commodore Lumina Review

I bought a 2005 VZ Holden Commodore about 2 years ago off someone that was upgrading to a brand new VE. At the time my 97 Magna was starting to fall to bits and needed more work then what the car was actually worth, so after some research and looking at what I could get (age wise, kilometers, and features) so I settled on buying a commodore...

2002 Holden Commodore Executive Review

This car is my baby! She runs like a dream and I've never had any problems with her. She's a real head turner thanks to me kitting her out with a Monaro body kit, genuine GTO bonnet, and stainless steel running boards and rear number plate surround. The aftermarket 19-inch wheels and tyres make the ride somewhat rough and loud, but she sticks like glue to any surface...

ISOFIX Child Seats : The benefits and how to fit correctly

ISOFIX child restraints that are compliant under the Australian Standard can now be used legally, but the old way is still ok. There are however, a number of reasons parents are being encouraged to make the move to ISOFIX. The ISOFIX system is the norm for many countries across the world, making Australia a little late to the party...

Holden Commodore Sportwagon Auto Parking

Standard in all Holden Commodore VF models is automated parking, including sedan, ute and Sportwagon , and the base model Holden Commodore Evoke. It's a first for a locally produced car, offering semi-automatic parallel and perpendicular parking (the car controls the steering; the driver controls the speed).

Australia Day Special : Holden Ute v Holden Sportwagon

James and Dave hit the skidpan in two rear-wheel-drive V8-powered Holdens to find out which is best at helping out your mates on Australia Day. G'day! A BBQ is a tradition on January 26th - Australia Day. But when you need someone to bring all the gear, who do you call - your mate with a ute or your mate with a wagon? The guys from CarAdvice...

Holden Commodore LPG to be axed

Holden will discontinue the LPG Commodore in the coming months due to a decline in interest and unviable ongoing production costs, according to a reliable industry source. The announcement, which is yet to be made public, comes ahead of the locally manufactured Commodore's end in Australia in 2017, and is likely to take effect when an updated Commodore range is released closer to the end of the year...

Holden Sandman name returns

Holden has dusted off the legendary Sandman badge in a bid to evoke some nostalgia 40 years after the nameplate premiered. The company, alas, has not brought back the famed panel van. But what it has done is deck out the SV6 and SS-V VF Commodore Sportwagon and Ute with some groovy ‘70s-style accoutrements...
