Sporty small hatch comparison : Mazda 3 v Ford Focus v Holden Cruze v Hyundai i30 v Nissan Pulsar

Almost anyone can throw on a pair of gym shorts and runners and look reasonably sporting in the checkout line at Coles, and the same is true with cars – the addition of alloy wheels, a spoiler and foglights can suddenly make your small hatchback look at least a bit athletic. As ever, though, it's the muscles beneath the clothes that counts...

2016 Holden Cruze SRi Z-Series Hatch Review

Read the full article here. Don’t judge a book by its cover. It’s a mantra imparted by generations of mild-mannered grandparents and other learned and worldly individuals, to encourage the younger set to look past what is immediately presented and discover true value beneath. It has been applied to people, environments, media, books (obviously) and in the case of the 2016 Holden Cruze SRi Z-Series, cars...

Small Car Comparison : Toyota Corolla v Mazda 3 v Holden Cruze v Hyundai Elantra

Small sedans are generally not quite as popular as small hatchbacks in Australia. The newly released Toyota Corolla sedan is expected to snare only a 20 per cent share of the nameplate’s sales this year, while the Hyundai Elantra is outsold by its i30 sibling five-to-one...

2010 Holden Cruze CD Review

Just reached 90,000 kms and transmission needs replacing. Spends more time in the workshop since 50,000kms on the clock. Should have been recalled as a dud and not allowed on the market. A waste of my money and time. Probably the reason Holden closing in Aus. It,s only good point is the comfortable drive and holds the road well...

2014 Holden Cruze SRI V Review

Very happy with my SRi-V. Now two years old and 32000k on clock and not one problem. Stunning roadholding with the 18x8 inch wheels and Bridgestone tyres. One interstate trip of 4000k and six others of 2000k ... a real pleasure. Good boot fits my wife's wheelchair with ease. Auto is smooth and intuitive. Do not understand the vitriol of people who have obviously not even driven one...

2015 Holden Cruze SRI V Review

Hard but responsive ride and corners really well whilst maintaining a very lateral position. Can't get the fuel consumption under 9lt per 100kms even though 70%+ of driving is up and the freeway.
