2017 Holden Colorado and Trailblazer engineering development drive

It's not uncommon for members of the public to spy pre-development vehicles being driven around the traps by manufacturers ahead of their launches. It's less common when the vehicles being driven are not produced in Australia. And, it's even less common when we're allowed to drive them...

2015 Holden Colorado 7 LTZ Review: Sand driving

Sponsored by Holden. Life is busy - too often we plan to do something on the weekend, get away from it all, escape the everyday - and rarely do. But what if you actually did all those things?

2016 Holden Colorado 7 LT (4x4) review

I bought my Colorado 7 18 months ago with 9000km on the clock and nine months old. It replaced my bought-new 2011 Suzuki Grand Vitara. It is now sitting at 35,000km after two outback road trips. It is pretty much stock except for some decent-quality larger all-terrain tyres and iDrive. It has been very reliable and hasn't missed a beat...

I do not like MyLink. Having to connect your phone to it every time to get a nav system working sucks...

The handsome exterior was matched with a 5...
