GM came close to being no more and Holden may well have gone with them. Holden sales have never been stronger so how does their current range sit against the more expensive imports?

The UK made Astra Sportwagon joins the Astra sedan, and the Polish-made hatch, in Holden’s new car launch assault. The new NG Commodore, Acadia SUV, and HSV’s Camaro will round out this year’s cavalcade. Until the NG Commodore is launched, heavy is the head of Astra, as it wears Holden’s passenger car crown alone. First, a few titbits about Astra: [...]

Holden is addressing any perceived negatives by leaving the past behind and launching a swag of new models including the new five-seat Equinox, small/medium SUV. It (eventually) replaces the old Korean-manufactured Captiva and gives Holden a strong contender against the likes of Mazda CX-3 and Toyota RAV4. Out of a GM plant in Mexico, Equinox is a handsome looking [...]

Holden Equinox: We also chat with Holden’s Natalie DAVEY

Holden Equinox. Never has a vehicle been so important for an auto maker. In Australia, there are Holden people, and Ford people, or at least, that’s the way it used to be. With the loss of local manufacturing, GM-Holden is now no different to any other retailer in Australia. Despite the loyalty built over a number of years, buyers [...]

If you go back five years the only 4WD wagon on the market that was based on a Ute was the Mitsubishi Challenger. Since then the market has changed dramatically with Isuzu and Holden starting the new trend, then Toyota and Ford followed and Mitsubishi replaced the Challenger. Now there is a good choice of robust, quality, reasonably priced [...]

It isn’t often I feel sad getting in to a car, but a thick veil of gloom came over me this week when I took the HSV GTS R out for a quick run. This is the last every Australian built HSV, period. The Zeta platform supported Commodores for the last 2 “generations”. Although the VF Commodore built on [...]
