Daily Telegraph (Sydney) rates Falcon vs Commodore

What I would consider a fairly high level comparo. A bit inconsistant too, as the intro paragraph explains that Exec is not available with front power windows, but the third journo says they can be 'factored' in to get a price close to Falcon and the Commodore picture is a bloody VX (how stupid is that?) No mention of the 15" vs 16" wheel sizes either.

The verdicts?

Kevin Hepworth: No question that Ford has not only made up the ground it had lost to Holden but has stuck a nose in front. That will not mean much to Holden faithful but for Blue Oval fans disenchanted by the AU, it is time to come home.
James Stanford: Both cars are competent, value-for-money family cars. The Falcon is simply much better.
Gavin McGrath (he who thinks Exec has optional front power windows): A Commodore buyer who upgrades to the VY will be very happy with the improvements and would remain happy unless he has a drive of the Ford. That's because the VY is a great car - but the BA Falcon is just that little bit better.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for a life. - Andrew Brown

It went from the Falcon being a real taker to the VY - but as we move along, the VY appears to be gaining on the Falcon.

I dont understand it, is it because Holden is just Holden?

I am very much suprised the daily tele favoured the Falcon as much as they did. To me they have alway come across heavily Holden biased.

None the less, another victory to Ford!
