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 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...

The new Commodore is a bloody good thing… get over it

You know what they say about opinions... No, not that line, the other one – 'you’re entitled to an opinion, but you’re also entitled to be wrong'. I prefer the other one for pure entertainment value to be honest, but in the instance of the new Holden Commodore, the line I’ve just written above is much more appropriate – and accurate...

2017 Holden Commodore SS-V Redline Motorsport Edition review

In October 2016, I heard some speculation about a special send-off model of the Commodore. As time went on about what it might be, I thought to myself I had to have it. At the time I was unemployed, only on my Ps, and the model hadn’t even been announced. I took the risk and put a deposit down at my dealer at the time...

2005 Holden Commodore S review

My dad has always said that "youth is wasted on the young". But then, he also says "you have to be young and stupid before you're old and wise". I kind of float between each mantra as I reflect on what was (and still is) my favourite car I've owned. I grew up in a Holden household...

2018 Holden Commodore RS review

Overall, it's a great automobile. I selected the V6 AWD RS version that has strong pick-up and good rev range. The gear changes are smooth and predictable. The handling at both low and high speeds is sharp and precise, with minimal body roll. Driver feel and feedback are great...

2016 Holden Commodore SS-V Redline review

A Note from the Editor: A stock image has been provided with this review.  We took delivery of our SS in late 2017, and what can I say, it's fully hectic. Our family bought it so we could do burnouts. The car is awesome, and the V8 just screams, especially now with the 375 kit. I'm not sure what improvements Holden could make, but making a front-wheel-drive V6 is definitely not an improvement...
