2016 Holden Commodore SV6 Sportwagon Review

It's going to be the last in a long line of large, Australian-built and designed wagons, so the SV6 has a lot to deliver if it wants to live up to the weight of expectation.

2016 Holden Commodore SS-V Redline Review: Driving the city at night

We've looked at the 2016 SS Commodore before, but we've never looked at it quite like this...

Hot laps at Bathurst in a Holden Commodore VFII SS-V Redline

Growing up in a small town in regional Queensland, the V8 Supercars Championship Series was the catalyst for heated debate among friends over drinks. This debate sparked family feuds that lasted decades and was even rumoured to have ruined marriages. Did your blood run red or blue? A side had to be chosen and God-forbid you changed your mind or sat on the fence...

Which should I buy: FWD, RWD or AWD?

Front-wheel-drive v rear-wheel-drive v all-wheel-drive: Vehicle dynamics and stability control tested Front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. What's the difference? And which one should you buy? We head out to the DECA skidpad in Shepparton to put all three to the test...

2016 Australia Day Special - Ford Everest v Holden Sportwagon

Last year CarAdvice held its first ever Australia Day challenge. We pitted a Holden Ute against a Holden wagon and James won. This year Dave reckons his learned his lesson and for 2016, he’s opted for the latest version of last year’s winner, the VF Series II Holden Commodore Sportwagon SS V Redline. Mixing things up a little, James has decided to go with the new Ford Everest...

How does a car go from prototype to production? Holden engineering interview

Read the article here. While most of the questions we receive are related to recommending new cars, there's an element of new car buying that many people don't know about. CarAdvice reader Stefan wanted to know how manufacturers take cars from the prototype stage through to production...

2016 Holden Commodore SS-V Redline night review

Read the article here. You want to see something a bit different? Well this is the 2016 Holden Commodore SS-V Redline... oh you've seen it before? Well not like this you haven't. Now to many of us, the Commodore is just everyday transport but switch out the lights and the SS particularly in its nitrate silver paint begins to look a little bit more impressive...

Holden Commodore SS V Redline Sportwagon v Volkswagen Golf R Wagon Comparison

At CarAdvice, we argue about cars. A lot. On almost a daily basis, protagonists will stake claims, draw battle lines, spit dummies, and grudge matches play out around the office with rarely any resolution reached. It’s not the imbalanced bravado and colourful language that makes such conflict unfit for publication, it just doesn’t really fit the largely objective mould of critical review...

Ford Everest v Holden Sportwagon: 2016 Australia Day Special

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...

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...

2016 Paris motor show: what to expect - UPDATE

It's the oldest motor show in the world, having first launched as a combined event for cycling, sports, and the exciting new world of automobiles. No surprise, then, that the biennial Paris motor show - "Mondial de l'Automobile" in the French - is also one of the biggest on the international calendar and a focus point for the most extravagant concepts and new-model unveilings...

Holden Commodore: as Australian as Bratwurst

Australian car enthusiasts – okay, just Holden enthusiasts – are up-in-arms at the prospect of Holden’s next Commodore being sourced from Germany. When Holden ceases local production of the Aussie-as-pie-and-sauce Commodore next year, it is widely tipped to be replaced by the German-designed Opel Insignia, rebadged as a Commodore...

Holden commits to Supercars, new 'Commodore' to race in 2018

Holden has confirmed it will continue to race in Australia’s premier motorsport category, Supercars, beyond the end of this year with a new three-year agreement to remain on the grid. However, in a shock announcement, Holden also confirmed it will end its association with Walkinshaw Racing at the end of the 2016 season and will instead form a new partnership with Triple Eight Race Engineering to form a new entity, Red Bull Holden Racing Team...

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...

2013 Holden Commodore SV6 Z-series Review

We bought this VE Sportswagon near the end of the VE run, it was discounted and we traded a VS wagon on it. At first it felt big and clumsy after the VS but that all changed on a quick trip to Toowoomba one weekend. It is great on the highways, smooth, quick and handles like it is on rails. It's now done 40,000 klms and is performing very well indeed...

2014 Holden Commodore SS-V Redline Review

Nice and refined in the cabin. I've come from a GU Nissan Patrol so wow, very modern feel and well finished look. Love the mixture of textures from the leather seats, chrome, carbon fibre and suede combo looks great. The Mylink is awesome, steering wheel and controls are comfy and easy to use. The kids and wife all love the sun roof...

2015 Holden Commodore SV6 Storm Review

Let me start by saying I am reviewing this car not because I own it but because I love driving this great machine. Bought this car back in May 2015 replacing my XR6 and I fell in love with this car since. Being one of the final commodores ever built I am part of the history which I am very proud of. Saying all this let's get to the 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...
