The Five Points of Holden Barina

The new Holden Barina is here but is it worth looking at?

Holden Barina 3 Door

Five Good Reasons

    • 1. At $12,990 it’s cheaper than this time last year

2. It comes with a 1.6 litre motor as standard

3. It handles well in tight spaces

4. Standard equipment includes airconditioning, power windows, adjustable steering wheel, driver and passenger airbags and adjustable driver’s seat

5. It has excellent fuel economy 6.9 litres per 100km for the manual and 7.8 litres per 100km for the automatic

Five Bad Reasons

1. It’s not the same car as this time last year. Last year’s Barina was built by Opel – this year it’s built by Daewoo – enough said

2. The manual gearbox could be better

3. At least one motoring writer has described cabin as filled with “low rent plastics”

4. The quality does not compare well with others in its class

5. It only comes with a 3 year or 100,000km warranty
