Holden Barina Sparks up for show

Pricing, full specifications and features will be announced at the Australian Internatioonal Motor Show, however Holden will make the price tag as sharp as possible ? possibly under $13,000.

The Barina Spark five-door hatch – rebadged from the US Chevrolet Spark – will join the Chevrolet Aveo-based Barina as the second car in the local line-up.  The Chevrolet car is built on the new global GM-Daewoo platform derived from the Daewoo Matiz.

The interior fit-out includes a ‘motorcycle-inspired instrument cluster’ mounted on the steering column, blue backlighting and colour-coded inserts in the dash and door trim.

The 1.2 litre DOHC four-cylinder engine is tipped to develop around 60kW of power and 110Nm of torque, delivered to the front wheels via a five-speed manual transmission.

Holden says fuel economy is 5.6 litres/100km - the most economical in the Red Lion range, while emissions are estimated to be about 119g/km of CO2.

Pricing, full specifications and features will be announced at the show, however Holden will make the price tag as sharp as possible – possibly under $13,000 to grab sales from other budget cars like the Hyundai Getz.
