The new Camry is a nice bit of kit in sports trim, easily the best looking model to date, whereas the current Commodore regardless of spec level is a big step backwards compared to its predecessor.

I can't believe i'm saying it but i'd probably agree. The new Camry looks ok imo. Probably not as good dynamically as the ZB, but with nothing better than an NA V6 you'd never want to flog the thing anyway.

423 ZB Commodores sold in March 2019 compared to 516 sold during March 2018.


Time to euthanize the brand.

Actually they only sold 406 ZB’s as the other 17 which made the number 423 were VF 2’s.
