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

2015 Holden Sportwagon SV6 Sandman Speed Date

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...

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.

2018 Holden Commodore captured?

Here are the first spy images of the 2017 Open Insignia, a car tipped by many to be the basis for the forthcoming, first fully-imported Holden Commodore. The new Opel Insignia, which our spy photographers predict will premiere in September 2017 at the Frankfurt motor show but which could easily appear as early as 2016, is set to grow significantly over the current version, sold here in hot VXR AWD turbo guise...

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.
