It’s hard to imagine the noise of a rumbling exhaust and angry V8 could ever get old. But, with the passing of time, the lure of a meaty V8 in a large sedan has passed Australians. Sure, it’s sad that we’re going to lose local manufacturing, but it doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate one last blast in what will arguably be known as Australia’s best bang-for-buck car – the 2017 Holden Commodore SS-V Redline...

Ford Mustang GT Fastback v Holden Commodore SS V Redline - Sandown Sound-off

It's Ford versus Holden, but which naturally-aspirated V8 beast sounds best going around Melbourne's Sandown Raceway? We hit the track in the 306kW 5.0-litre Ford Mustang GT Fastback and the 304kW 6.2-litre Holden Commodore SS V Redline to find out.

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...

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...

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...

2016 Holden Commodore SS-V Redline v Volkswagen Golf R Review : Wagon track battle

Read the article here. 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...

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  ...
