Overview of the Holden Commodore

The Holden Commodore was always about power and a little bit prestige. It was first seen here in 1978, truly a child of the OPEC Oil Embargo and skyrocketing fuel prices, yet still equipped with larger i6, V6, and V8 engines. While the first-generation Commodore did suffer from fit and finish problems, overall it was praised for its refined handling and ride quality. The midsize Holden Commodore was originally released as a front-engine, rear-wheel drive, four-door sedan, but eventually grew to include a five-door wagon. In the mid-1990s, there was even a two-door utility vehicle, which has come back a couple times over the years. Today's Commodore is probably more about power than ever before, especially the sport models, which offer big engines and aggressive styling, perhaps the perfect Aussie muscle car. In fact, Wheels Magazine has given Holden Commodore the Car of the Year Award five times since 1978.

Pros

Cons

  • Full-size, great for families, and especially good for rear legroom
  • Sport wagon version has loads of space but is comparatively economical
  • Holds its value well, so you'll get more back if you trade in
  • Always attractive styling
  • Big blind spots in the front pillars
  • A favourite for modifying, so used Commodores might have been fiddled with
  • Holds its value well, so you might pay more than you'd expect for others in its class
  • Expensive tyres, especially on the SS, so make sure the replacements are up to par
