Earlier this week Holden announced the release of Barina Spark – a 1.2-litre five-door hatch city car that’s a little smaller than the other models in the Barina range. You can read more of the information and see an interior photo that was provided at the time of that initial announcement here.
Today Holden released even more information about equipment and pricing levels for the Barina Spark and it’s obvious that Holden wants to claim a big chunk of the light-car segement.
