The Holden Barina nameplate has been around in Australia since 1985, and it currently adorns a pair of 1.6-litre petrol-powered small hatchbacks. The Barina range was rationalised in late 2016, with prices cut and the sedan version given the… boot? Current prices range from $8,800 for the Barina LS (5YR) to $17,160 for the Barina LT (5YR).
It shares category space with the similar-but-different Spark, with both cars sourced from GM’s plant in Korea. Holden’s Melbourne-based design team was responsible for the more 'grown up' design update that was added to the car in 2016.
