  • First Drive: Holden Astra Sedan

  • Now THATS a Supercar: Holden’s 2019 Commodore Supercar revealed

    The 2018 Holden Commodore Supercar has been revealed in a digital mock up released by Holden and it looks bloody fantastic. If you thought the closure of the Holden factory was going to slow the company down, think again – I for one reckon it looks great. This is...
  • Commodore Tourer announced: The AWD Adventra is back!

    The more I see of the Opel Insignia derived all-new Holden Commodore the more I start to wonder if I’ll miss the big Aussie beast, and today Holden have released details of an all-wheel-drive Commodore Wagon they call the Tourer – I’m calling it Adventra 2.0. Holden has had...

  • The $50,000 fully electric car set to change the market

  • RIP HRT: Holden partners with Red Bull Racing for 2017 Supercar season

    The idea of Holden withdrawing its support for the Holden Racing Team seemed extreme when it was first floated recently – but now it’s all set in stone – if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em as they say.  From 2017, the Triple Eight Engineering Red Bull Racing Team...
  • A Holden Bolt is possible – Chevrolet confirms right-hand drive potential

  • Quick Fix – 2015 Holden Calais V Sportwagon VFII V8

    Ok so we know Holden has gone all out when it comes to the latest VFII Commodore, especially if you’re the type that just must have a V8. A 6.2-litre LS3 engine now adorns the newish front end of the 37-year-old iconic nameplate. It’s damn loud too, with a...
  • 2015 Holden Astra VXR – EFTM Quick Fix

    It’s time, time to get over the fact General Motors has dumped Australia as a manufacturing outpost. While Holden fans may find that statement about as easy to swallow as a golf ball, there is life after the Commodore et al. Over the coming years Holden has 24 vehicle...
  • Reality Check: The car-tech features missing from the Tesla Model S

    Last week Tesla released version 7 of their in-car software which enabled some pretty amazing “Autopilot” features for owners.  The hype in the tech world is pretty extreme, but perhaps a reality check is needed and we should consider what Tesla don’t have and ask why?...

  • The Garage – Holden Colorado Space Cab LTZ

    The prospect of a rugged off-road warrior that can deliver Mum and the kiddies around mid-week is the reason why pick-ups are no longer the sole domain of those wearing fluoro shirts. The Holden Colorado has always delivered well, but struggled to shrug off an inherent agricultural edge that...
