Holden has introduced the Barina X special edition to spice up the local lineup. It brings added sporty features and equipment that boost overall value.
Based on the CD hatch in manual and auto form, the Barina X comes with an electric sunroof and Holden’s comprehensive MyLink interface. It also gets 16-inch alloy wheels in gunmetal grey, unique ‘X’ badges and decals, and front fog lights for that sporty look.
The standout for the interior is the MyLink interface. It supports various apps, including music-based Pandora and Stitcher, and TuneIn radio, as well as in-car navigation in the form of BringGo.
All of the added features would usually cost $2500, however, the company has packaged it together for an additional $1250 over the CD. Geraldine Davys, Holden’s executive director of marketing, said,
“Barina has always been a stylish light car, and now, with the introduction of Barina ‘X’ and the inclusion of MyLink, it delivers even more technology and features, without the premium price tag. The addition of 16 inch alloy wheels and stylish decals brings an extra level of excitement and flair to the Barina”
Just 700 of these special editions will hit the market, so you’ll have to be quick. Prices start at $16,640 for the manual and $18,840 for the auto (excluding on-road costs). Both come with a 1.6-litre producing 85kW and 155Nm. In manual form it offers an average fuel consumption of 6.8L/100km.
