2018 Holden Commodore VXR review

Rear-wheel drive and V8 power are gone. So, is there any compensation for keen drivers to be found in the new V6 AWD Holden Commodore VXR that replaces the SS-V as the flagship Holden?

2018 Holden Commodore: CarAdvice reader drive day

The new, imported 2018 Holden ZB Commodore is now officially on sale Down Under, and it has left many wondering if it lives up to the iconic nameplate of its home-made predecessor. Holden boss Mark Bernhard encouraged skeptics 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 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 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...

Top 5 comparisons of 2017

2017 is almost over. It's time for Christmas parties, sunshine and rose-tinted reflection on the year gone by. But here at CarAdvice, we aren't taking our foot off the pedal just yet – instead, we're taking the chance to look back at your favourite comparisons from this year. 5. Ford Ranger XLT v Volkswagen Amarok V6 Highline "The space between working ute and family SUV is getting greyer...

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...

2018 Holden Commodore recalled for seatbelt fix

Holden has recalled the 2018 ZB Commodore over concerns the outboard rear seatbelts may not be correctly installed. According to the company, the seatbelts may not operate as designed in an accident, putting passengers in the left or right rear at greater risk of injury. A total of 2167 vehicles are included in the recall – a VIN list is attached here...

Supercars: Holden welcomes Ford fight

In a big day of performance news for Ford and its fans, Holden couldn't help but remind racing tragics of its own legend status on the track. Fair enough, too, given Ford has announced it'll race its hugely popular rear-wheel-drive V8 Mustang next year, while Holden's entry is based on a car that has hurt more than a few feelings in the Lion camp...

CarAdvice podcast 96: New York motor show hits and misses!

In the studio this week is Mandy Turner, Mike Costello, and Kez Casey. It's a New York motor show themed car news this week. The Genesis Essentia and Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak concepts have been revealed. The sheets have been pulled back on the 2019 Audi RS5 Sportback and Honda Insight, and a group of popular SUVs – Hyundai Tucson, Toyota RAV4, and Subaru Forester...

2016 Holden Commodore SV6 Black Edition review

Aussie rear-wheel-drive Commodores are not long for this world, which is a huge shame because the latest and greatest Commodore is truly world class. Yes, the model tested here is not the cracking Redline with that mighty LS3 V8 and viscous exhaust, but with drive-away pricing for the SV6 Black Edition of $37K back in 2017, this perhaps was the pick for the 'everyday' Australian...

2013 Holden Commodore SS review

As a basic variant of the hero performance car, the base SS is a good solid introduction into the segment. Well appointed from factory and with good performance, the SS is a great base for those who can’t afford or justify the upper-spec models like the SSV. The 6.0-litre is a solid engine with plenty of power out of the box, while offering plenty to those who prefer to tweak it in search of some more fun...

2004 Holden Commodore SS review

After the first drive, I loved it. Being that my current Holden Commodore SS is modified, it makes it that much better. The 5.7-litre LS1 responded really well to some basic modifications: Pacemaker extractors, high-flow cats, Pacemaker cat-back exhaust, VCM Performance over-the-radiator cold-air induction and a MAFless tune...

2018 Holden Commodore VXR review

A quick note before I jump into the review. In case you haven’t read my other Owner Reviews, I’m a 14 year old from Sydney with a passion for cars. The Holden Commodore is to Australia what the Volkswagen Beetle is to Germany - it’s the car that defines the nation...
