The Holden Nova was a compact car that was produced by the GM-Holden-Toyota alliance, known as United Australian Automobile Industries (UAAI) in Australia between August 1989 and 1996. The alliance, and therefore the car, was a result of the failed Button car plan which attempted to rationalise the Australian car manufacturing industry. The Nova was sold and marketed under the Holden nameplate, although it was a badge engineered version of the Toyota Corolla, receiving minor stylistic changes. Unlike the Corolla, the Nova was sold only as a four-door sedan and five-door hatchback.

In all years, the Nova was outsold by the Toyota Corolla in Australia, and from 1996 car was replaced by the Holden Astra.[2]

First generation (LE, LF; 1989–1994)

The LE and LF series, based on the Corolla E90 were sold between 1989 and 1994. The LE was offered with Toyota's 1.4 litre 60-kilowatt (80 hp) engine (hatchback only) and 1.6 litre 67-kilowatt (90 hp) engine, in Holden's traditional SL (hatchback only), SLX and SLE trims.[2] The LF Nova, available from October 1991, added fuel injection to the 1.6 litre unit, now rated at 75 kilowatts (101 hp).[2] The SLE hatchback was replaced by a GS model, although SLE continued as a trim on the sedan, then in October 1992, a fuel-injected 1.8 litre 85-kilowatt (114 hp) engine was offered for the GS hatchback. The 1.4 litre option and the SLEs were unavailable from 1993.

Second generation (LG; 1994–1996)

The LG Nova was sold between 1994 and 1996, although a smaller range was offered. The SLX trim level was equipped with a 1.6 litre 78-kilowatt (105 hp) engine, while the GS trim level denoted the fitment of the 1.8 litre engine. Four-door sedan and five-door hatchback options were offered for both levels, and all engines featured fuel injection.
