2018 Holden Commodore RS long-term review: Farewell

Few cars have divided readers' opinion as much as our long-term Holden Commodore RS. But after bidding it farewell, those who've actually driven it can't help but be impressed.

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...

Holden Commodore Long-Termer: Part 2 - Farewell

And that, friends, is the end of our time with the Holden Commodore RS we borrowed as a long-term test car. What did the team think of it? Find out here, and catch the full story here.

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.

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 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...

Holden Commodore future in doubt as General Motors axes its US twin

The future of the Holden Commodore is in doubt, with insiders claiming it is likely to come to an unceremonious end about 12 months from now, bringing down the curtain on a tumultuous 42-year run. However, Holden says the Holden Commodore is here to stay despite the shock announcement in the US overnight that its identical twin, the Buick Regal, will be phased out next year due to weak sales driven by a buyer shift to SUVs...

2020 Holden Commodore spied with less camouflage

2018 Holden Commodore RS review

This is my first Holden. I have previously never considered one. Call me names, but I thought the Australian made cars were shoddily built and I remember my brother owning one in the 90's that came with a 3 month warranty when brand new and fell to pieces on the fourth. Maybe the later cars were better but my rental car experiences of Commodores and Falcons were unconvincing...

2007 Holden SV6 Ute review

I was growing tired of riding my bike during the wet season (I live in the tropics) and having to sit in damp clothes for eight hours every day. After owning motorcycles for four years, it was time to get another car. My lifestyle meant I needed a ute to cart my bike around and for also going to the rubbish tip...

2016 Holden Commodore SS-V Redline review

When I told my wife I was going to get a Commodore, she didn't think much of it - actually, she thought I wasn't serious. I had a barely two year old Mazda 3 SP25 GT which was fine, but uninspiring. It didn't do anything wrong - but as someone once said, "If you can park your car, and walk away without looking back, you've got the wrong car...

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...
