2018 Holden Commodore RS long-term review 5: On the highway

“It’s not a real Commodore, mate!” A statement enthusiastically communicated to me in a predominantly negative fashion. It was delivered by a gentleman in his late 20s, wrapped in hi-vis yellow and I suspect loyal to the lion of old. This was apparent due to his choice of transport – a horrifically modified six-cylinder VT Commodore with the obligatory Chevrolet badges...

2018 Holden Commodore RS long-term review 4: The sales rep

While we spend our time at CarAdvice reviewing cars for a living, there are plenty of other owners out there who spend as much, if not more, time in their vehicles as we do. Plenty of them are CarAdvice readers or listeners to the podcast and radio shows too – truck drivers, couriers, hire car chauffeurs, tradesmen and, of course, sales reps...

2018 Holden Commodore RS long-term review 3: Around town

Our long-term Commodore drew plenty of attention when it lobbed in the CarAdvice garage for its extended stay. The wider CA team flocked to pore over its lines, critique its interior, and generally get a feel for Rüsselsheim’s finest export to Australia...

2018 Holden Commodore RS long-term review: Cabin comfort and practicality

We already know the new European-designed Holden Commodore is smaller than the Aussie-built large sedan it has replaced, in our minds, if not our hearts. The question is, how much smaller? And will you really notice? And at first sitting, not really. There’s still ample room for four adults to travel in comfort...

Long-termer: Introducing the 2018 Holden Commodore RS

Introducing our latest long-term test car, the 2018 Holden Commodore RS liftback sedan.

2018 Holden Commodore review: RS Sportwagon 2.0 petrol

Holden wagons had been ferrying Australian families around long before the term ‘SUV’ emerged in the late 1980s. The traditional, lower-riding body style may be a niche choice on the road these days, but that hasn’t stopped the variant being part of the all-new Holden Commodore range imported from Europe. Jez explores the new offering.

2018 Kia Stinger v 2018 Holden Commodore

You've seen us pit the new Kia Stinger against the now-retired VF Commodore, so how does the new European-imported Commodore VXR go against the turbocharged V6 Stinger?

2018 Holden Commodore: CarAdvice reader drive day

Holden boss Mark Bernhard has encouraged skeptics of the new Commodore to "drive the car and then have an opinion", so we ran a CarAdvice competition where 27 of our readers were given the chance to do just that at the Holden Proving Ground in Lang Lang.

2018 Holden Commodore RS Sportwagon 2.0 petrol v Mazda 6 Touring Wagon comparison

What’s the difference between a medium and large wagon? More in size than price if you use the Mazda 6 and Holden Commodore cargo-haulers as examples. While the new, German-sourced Commodore stretches nearly 19cm beyond the Japanese 6, their respective RS and Touring variants are split by just $900...

2018 Kia Stinger 330Si v Holden Commodore VXR comparison

It's on again – less than six months ago we put the 2018 Kia Stinger 330Si up against the Aussie-built 2018 Holden Commodore SS-V Redline, and the results were surprising. In that test, the Kia Stinger blew us away with its performance and standard level of equipment. So much so that we gave it the win by a nose over the Australian favourite...

2018 Holden Commodore LT review

Let me start off by saying this isn't my car. I am a Used Car Manager, so I am in and out of different cars all the time. Part of my job once a month or so is I do a round trip of roughly 800km in a day, which includes going up over the Tasmanian Midlands. It is one of the great driving roads in the country, and gives you a great feel for a car, so in saying that, here is my review...

2018 Holden Commodore RS review

At risk of igniting the 'Is it a Commodore?' debate in the comments section, I decided to write this review. But first, some context. I am a Holden fan through and through. Sitting in the garage now is a 2017 Commodore Redline alongside a 1973 GTR Torana. In the driveway, a 2008 VE Commodore. Before the VE Commodore, I owned a Commodore...

2004 Holden Commodore Executive review

You can tell a football fan by the jersey they wear, an Olympian by the flag they bear, and a coffee snob by the quality of their Keep-Cup, so surely you can tell a car enthusiast by the car that they drive? Right? My fear is that if the mantra rings true, I’m almost as much of a car enthusiast as I am a rocket scientist. That is... I’m far from one...

1995 Holden Commodore Executive review

I was after a Commodore for a bit of a project and my first car. I have always liked the Commodores and I was getting my Ls in six months, so I started looking for one. I really liked the ’90s era Commodores, especially the VR–VS series, so when a one-owner 1995 VS Executive popped up, I had to go and have a look...
