Update: Holden Barina Spark Review
Holden has launched the all new Barina Spark light car at the Sydney Motor Show. Sitting underneath the current Holden Barina, the Spark will make use of a 1.2-litre petrol engine with 59kW and 107Nm of torque. It manages a combined fuel economy figure of 5.6-litres per 100km.
The Spark is only available as a five-door hatch but promises to do wonders for Holden in the rapidly growing light-category. Prices start at just $12,490 for the base model and top out at $13,990 for the CDX. The Holden Barina Spark will go head to head with the Nissan Micra and Suzuki Alto.
“This is a very style-conscious market and what we have here is a really fresh and energetic design that breaks the ‘cute car’ mould. There’s nothing look-alike about Barina Spark, which underlines its appeal as a city car with attitude. The safety story is aa big plus, given that Barina Spark is one of the only cars in its class with electronic stability conntrol and six airbags as standard fitmment.” Holden Executive Director of Sales, Marketing and Aftersales, John Elsworth said.
