2018 Holden Calais-V Tourer review

Holden spins its upmarket wagon into an all-road adventurer with the Calais-V Tourer. Following a formula familiar to Adventra owners thanks to all-paw grip and SUV styling, the Tourer serves the needs of Aussie families in a new way for the Lion brand.

Fifty years of Holden Wagons - 2014 VF Calais Sportwagon v 1964 EH Special Wagon

The Holden Commodore Sportwagon is the only Australian-built station wagon you can buy. Wagons have been important to Australia, so James takes a look at two cars, fifty years apart - the 2014 Holden Calais V Sportwagon and the 1964 EH Holden Special Station Sedan. When the EH was on sale in 1964, Australia had a population of only 11 million people and was still a couple of years away from having decimal currency...

Holden Calais V v Subaru Liberty 3.6R Comparison

The Holden Commodore and Ford Falcon were long the default options for families wanting a bucketload of space, a sporty drive and a powerful six-cylinder engine. And let’s not forget the somewhat less inspiring Toyota Aurion, too. Sometimes forgotten though, and somewhat pushed off to the side, is the mid-sized Subaru Liberty — especially in 3...

2005 Holden Calais review

I bought the 2005 Holden Calais as it was advertised on Carsales for $6500 and it was perfect in every way: leather seats, cruise control, climate control and paddle-shift auto, and just looked awesome. But I talked the guy down to $4500..

2014 Holden Calais V Review

I've owned my 2014 Calais V for 6 months now. I have to say I love it. I was debating with my wife about what car we should buy and we narrowed it down to a Honda Accord, VW Passat Highline, and a Mazda 6.

2007 HOLDEN CALAIS Review

Now 5 years old, the original VE Calais is extremely good value if not without some unexpected wear and tear. The high output 3.6 provides fair economy on the open road averaging 9.3L/100km with 12.3L/100km around town. The 5 speed auto is lightyears ahead of the old 4-speed with changes hardly noticeable on the upshift and manual control responsive and obedient during downshifts...
