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. 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...

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.

2018 Holden Colorado LT review

The Holden Colorado doesn't get the plaudits it deserves in the face of relentless Ranger and HiLux sales. Holden fans love it, but you should consider it if you're in the market for a dual-cab 4WD.

Going to extremes in the Holden Colorado Z71 Xtreme

Remember 1992? To be more accurate, do you remember a certain special edition Holden released in 1992? See if this rings a bell. The Holden Barina Sportsgirl. That’s right, this was Holden's attempt at taking its player in the popular small hatch back segment and trying to convince consumers that this particular Barina was more special than a standard Barina...

2018 Holden Calais review

Strip away preconceptions and the Holden Calais hatch presents as a highly competent mid-sized car with notable dynamics, though does the value quite stack up?

2018 Holden Commodore RS long-term review: Introduction

If cars suffered from identity crises, then the all-new ZB Holden Commodore would spend much of its life in therapy asking the question, ‘Who – and what – am I, exactly?’. Decried and denigrated since landing on our shores from Germany earlier this year, the Opel Insignia-based flag bearer for Holden hasn’t been met with acclaim...
