2016 Holden Commodore SV6 Black Edition review

Holden has thrown a bunch of goodies at the SV6 sedan, but does the Black Edition still cut it in the sports sedan stakes?

2018 Holden Commodore Review: New Opel Insignia driven in Australia

Don't worry, you don't need to get your eyes checked. You read it right, we've just driven the 2018 Holden Commodore, in prototype form - and it's a cracker. The next-generation Commodore will be based entirely on the Opel Insignia. In fact, it won't receive any panel or body changes, aside from Holden badges...

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...

2018 Holden Commodore/Opel Insignia — A look at the camouflage

Read the full article here. Today we were able to confirm, as had been expected, that the 2018 Holden Commodore will indeed be based on the next-generation Opel Insignia due to launch in mid-2017. While it's a special car for Australia because it will replace the Commodore we know and love, it's also special because of the type of camouflage used on its body...

2018 Holden Commodore First Look Review

Read the full article here. Despite its launch being almost a year-and-a-half away, CarAdvice has been behind the wheel of the 2018 Holden Commodore and can now bring you the full details. Holden allowed CarAdvice, along with a handful of Australian motoring media, into the depths of the company’s design centre to outline the 2018 Holden Commodore, which is due to arrive locally in February 2018...

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...

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...

Holden winds up engine production ahead of 2017 manufacturing end

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. As it did for Ford, today marks a step toward ending Holden's entire Australian manufacturing program. But, while Ford continued to build engines until just weeks before Falcon and Territory production ended, Holden intends to continue building the Commodore through to the end of 2017...

2018 Holden Commodore Sportwagon spied again

The next-generation Holden Commodore Sportwagon has been spied again on public roads in Germany. The car seen here is the second-generation Opel Insignia wagon, which will be sold down under as the next-generation Holden Commodore when local production of the VF II range ceases towards the end of 2017...

2018 Holden Commodore teased as Opel details new LED matrix headlights

The new Opel Insignia, and in all likelihood the Holden Commodore too, will feature a second-generation version of GM's IntelliLux matrix LED headlights. While the first-generation unit, which is available in the new Holden Astra, features 16 LED segments all up, the new version will have 32 LED segments, with 16 on each side...

2016 Holden Commodore SS Black Edition review

I purchased a 2016 manual SS Black edition commodore in September 2016, and have owned it for just 6 weeks. With Holden shutting the doors for manufacturing in Australia soon, I couldn't help but feel like I would be missing out one of the best cars Australia has ever made had I decided against purchasing the Commodore...

2010 Holden Commodore S Review

Before I dwelve into his review, I think it may be necessary to disclose a few items: 1) I am a self-confessed nut on all things Commodore related; 2) I'm not a middle aged gentleman with 3 kids, instead a 23 year old wagonista; and 3) I have been longing for a VE since my 13 year old self watched via simulcast the Ignition SSV roll down the catwalk at the Melbourne Convention Centre one rainy Sunday morning in July 2016 (even got a bit tearful)...

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...
