2018 Holden Equinox LT 2.0T review (video)

2018 Holden Commodore VXR vs Kia Stinger 330Si: Sports sedan comparison (video)

Jun 21, 2018

The affordable large sports sedan market has changed dramatically. For starters, you can forget Australian made. And, technically, most sedans aren’t even sedans these days; in the case of these two, both feature a sporty...

2018 Holden Calais Tourer vs Subaru Outback 3.6R: Adventure wagon comparison (video)

May 22, 2018

So, here we have two very unlikely rivals. From Japan it’s arguably the pioneer of the jumped-up wagon vehicle style, the Subaru Outback, and from Germany we have the all-new Holden Calais V Tourer. Both...

2017 Holden Commodore SS V Redline Ute review (video)

Jun 15, 2017

The 2017 Holden Commodore SS V Redline Ute is a significant car for many unfortunate reasons. It is the full stop on a story that began 83 years ago with the first ute, and 69...

2017 Holden Trax LTZ review (video)

Apr 27, 2017

A new year, a new 2017 Trax for Holden, with the brand’s littlest SUV coming in for some nip-and-tuckery. A sleeker new corporate front end now adorns the mini crossover, which means it no longer...

2017 HSV Clubsport LSA vs Lexus GS F: V8 sedan comparison (video)

Apr 07, 2017

2017 Holden Astra R review (video)

2017 Holden Colorado LTZ Space Cab review (video)

Oct 13, 2016

The facelifted 2017 Holden Colorado LTZ aims to maintain a steady market position in the 4×4 ute segment and right some criticisms of the outgoing model. During the course of 2017, the Thai-built workhorse will...

2016 Holden Calais V Sportwagon V8 LS3 POV review (video)

Sep 03, 2016

So, we were planning on a comparison with the Calais V and the new Skoda Superb 206TSI. Both of which offer similar performance and at a similar price. However, Skoda cancelled our booking at the...

2016 HSV GTS GEN-F2 review (video)

Jul 20, 2016

It saddens us to say this but reviewing the 2016 HSV GTS GEN-F2 will probably be the last time we test an Australian V8 sedan with over 400kW. Let’s go over it one last time...

2016 Mitsubishi Mirage vs Holden Spark: City car comparison

Jul 20, 2016

Some new city cars in the lower end of the pricing spectrum are marketed in a way that is heavily skewed towards young women. The 2016 Mitsubishi Mirage LS and 2016 Holden Spark LS have...

2016 Holden Insignia VXR review (video)

Jul 10, 2016

This week we sampled the 2016 Holden Insignia VXR; a car which signals Holden’s return to more sophisticated, European offerings, and one which may hold several clues to the all-new 2018 Commodore (or whatever it...
