LARGE sedans packing a V8 are per-
fect transport for families needing to
cart around three children or less.
When the block of metal under the
bonnet of the Calais V is a 6.0l generating
260kW of power and 517Nm of torque,
packing in passengers and luggage is not
It certainly makes for smooth cruising
The six-speed automatic transmission
has a triptronic function, which is better
left in full automatic because of a half
second or so delay in gear changes when
Handling was what would be expected
of a large family-sized sedan, with little
body roll felt during cornering.
The Calais V is a comfortable steer.
And it is packed with technology to make
life easier for drivers and passengers.
The car tested had two DVD screens,
with the front unit also containing a col-

front parking sensors, a rear view camera,
leather seats, dual zone climate control
and ample leg and head room for rear
The boot was large enough but the
opening was quite narrow and could
make the stowage of wider items difficult.
Being a V Calais it has 19 inch alloys,
dual exhaust with chrome tips, front fog
lamps and a discreet boot lid spoiler,
which all set it apart from a standard

Holden Calais V V8
Engine: 6.0l V8 producing 260kW and
517Nm of torque.
RRP before on roads: $61,990 as
The 6.0l in this car was an Active Fuel
Management (AFM) engine, which pro-
fesses to only use all eight cylinders when
it needs to and saves fuel.
A small digital readout at the bottom
of the speedo tells the driver when the
vehicle is using four or eight cylinders.
Four cylinder mode was only seen
during throttle off, down-hill travel and
relatively flat, easy coasting.
If fuel consumption was lowered it
wasn't noticeable on this test.
However, owners might notice a dif-
ference if they've driven a similar Holden
vehicle not fitted with a V8 AFM engine.
Whichever way you look at the Calais
sale at a price not affordable to everyone.
It does everything you ask of it quite
well and has plenty of grunt and gadgetry
to keep drivers and passengers happy on
If you want more than basic transport
with more power and luxury than most
people will ever need, then consider it as
one of your options for the parking space
in your shed.
