THIRST 8.3L/100km THE LOWDOWN There are some tasty performance cars in the Commodore family but the basic Evoke is just fine for family travel and beats the Ford Falcon on all fronts. It is incredibly refined, safe and well equipped, and drives particularly well. The basic 3.0-litre engine has about enough go and is fairly light on fuel. It’s a pity the VF has arrived when so few people want big cars.
