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.

4x4 Tips: Gearing up for the Victorian High Country

The Victorian High Country is a magical place, one of the best off-roading destinations on the planet. It's full of awesome tracks, picturesque camping, and the type of wilderness usually only available when places are hard to get to. If you've got a 4x4, you're well on your way to visiting the High Country in your own time, and on your own terms...

2019 Holden Trailblazer Z71 review: Off-road

500Nm, 4x4 ability and room for seven souls aboard. Is Holden's Trailblazer the forgotten option for adventurous families?

2019 Holden Commodore Calais V Tourer: Reader review

Anyone who frequents our comments will know readers don't always agree with the expert reviews published on CarAdvice. Our team of road testers and journalists are lucky to drive lots of cars, but that also means we approach things from a certain angle.

2019 Holden Acadia LT AWD review

Holden’s new seven-seat SUV is a worthy alternative to the ubiquitous Toyota Kluger and Mazda CX-9, and miles ahead of the old Captiva.

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.

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...

2018 Holden Colorado LTZ review

500Nm of torque, 1000kg of payload and some handy tech inside. But is the Colorado better than the sum of its parts?

2019 Holden Acadia review

It's been two years since Holden announced the Acadia seven-seat SUV would come to Australia from overseas division, GMC. Now, given the local treatment, the Acadia is ready to challenge the seven-seat large SUV segment.
