1990 Ford Falcon EA Wagon

Ford Falcon EA

The front suspension on the EA Falcon was new from the ground up and offered a better ride, handling and longevity. The "variable assist" power steering was far superior to the XF model, and offered the added benefit of delivering a tighter turning circle (the QE2 putting a XF to shame). Unfortunately for the EA reliability issues were soon to surface and the model quickly gained a bad reputation with the Australian motoring public. Some analysts believe it was Ford's desire to get the new model to market quickly, without first ironing out the bugs, that caused the problem.
1990 Holden VN Commodore

Holden designers and engineers took a wind tunnel-influenced Opel Omega design and altered it substantially and ingeniously to create the VN Commodore; widening, re-styling and re-engineering to meet Australian criteria. Interior roominess, torquey performance and chassis dynamics topped the list. Reflecting an emphasis on aerodynamics as a way of improving performance and fuel consumption, the VN offered such features as flush-fitting side glass, steeply raked windscreen and low-profile headlights.
