2018 Kia Stinger 330Si v Holden Commodore SS-V Redline comparison

Every single time we mention the word Stinger on the CarAdvice website, a small smoke haze rises out of the server as the comments section descends into a chest-beating war of words. A car has never been so divisive and it's not hard to see why. The all-new Kia Stinger is encroaching on territory long held by an Australian mob in the form of the Blue Oval and red lion...

2017 Nissan 370Z Nismo v Holden Ute SS-V Redline comparison

The Commodore name may be living on but the Holden Ute passes away officially on 20 October when production of that most Australian of icons end. And uncertainty surrounding the future of Nissan’s legendary Z-series means the 370Z Nismo could be the last hurrah for a lineage that runs back nearly 50 years – to the original, 1969 Datsun 240Z...

2017 Mazda CX-3 Maxx v Holden Trax LS comparison

The sales growth of pint-sized SUVs seems to have become stunted in 2017 despite an expanding category, yet they still account for about 10 per cent of Australia's new-car market. Two of the top-sellers can’t be accused of resting on their laurels, either. Both the Holden Trax and Mazda CX-3 have been given notable updates this year...

2017 Holden Astra LT sedan v 2017 Toyota Corolla Ascent sedan comparison

From styling to equipment and value, Holden has take the offensive to the small-car market with its Euro-influenced Astra sedan range. An offer too good to be true? We pitch it against the evergreen, big-selling Corolla to test the measure of the Astra's goodness.

Small hatch comparison

For all the hoo-ha about booming sales of SUVs, the so-called 'small car' segment remains the market's most popular, still accounting for almost 20 per cent of all new vehicles sold in Australia. Of this, the majority are hatchbacks instead of three-box sedans, which draw people in based on their improved practicality and generally less conservative design approaches...

Renault Megane Intens v Mazda 3 SP25 GT v Holden Astra LTZ comparison

Who would have thought there’d be enough action in the small sedan segment of the market to warrant yet another comparison test – our fifth such test since the beginning of 2016? Yet here we are, in a world where the small car is increasingly being seen as a great alternative to the mid-size sedan because, essentially, these new ‘small’ sedans offer better space for your spend than vehicles in the next segment up...

Ford Mustang GT Fastback v Holden Commodore SS V Redline comparison: Track Test

At the end of Part One of our Ford Mustang GT Fastback v Holden Commodore SS V Redline comparison – the Road Test – the 5.0-litre ‘Yank Tank’ was lagging a little behind the 6.2-litre Aussie brute. But things were most definitely still close. Now it's time to sort the men from the boys, and find out which of our two sub-$60k rear-wheel-drive, V8-powered muscle cars should rightfully be crowned the victor: the Ford or the Holden...

Ford Mustang GT Fastback v Holden Commodore SS V Redline comparison: Road Test

What the hell? Why would you put a two-door Ford Mustang up against a soon-to-be-departed four-door Holden Commodore? Well, when there's only 2kW and $2500 between them, why wouldn’t we...? Late last month we got the chance to twin-test our resident long-term 2017 Ford Mustang GT Fastback against the ageing – yet decidedly still entertaining – 2017 Nissan 370Z Coupe...

Ute comparison: Ford Ranger v Holden Colorado v Isuzu D-Max v Mitsubishi Triton v Toyota HiLux v Volkswagen Amarok

There are work utes – you know, the single-cab, budget-focused models aimed at tradies specifically – and there are lifestyle utes, those that cost $60,000 to $70,000 that are more often seen with a dude in a suit driving them rather than a bloke in overalls. In fact, we drove those types of utes in our eight ute mega test a while ago, and we've even done an extra-cab lifestyle ute comparison, too...

Mitsubishi Pajero Sport Exceed v Holden Trailblazer LTZ comparison

If you’ve outgrown your large SUV, there’s only one way to move and that’s up. And, two manufacturers battling for your hard-earned rugged SUV dollars are Mitsubishi and Holden...

2017 Holden Spark LT v Suzuki Ignis GLX comparison

The market’s smallest vehicles aren’t selling quite as well as they used to, but you can’t attribute this decline to any lack of quality on the part of car makers. Two of the best, and newest, entrants are compared here: the Australian-tuned Holden Spark from Korea, and the just-launched Suzuki Ignis from Japan...
