October 21, 2014

Holden has just announced a new ‘Trio’ option pack for the Barina, combining three extras into one price for added value.

The pack introduces Holden’s MyLink infotainment system to the Barina for the first time, allowing drivers to access the in-car digital radio apps such as Pandora, Stitcher, and TuneIn, as well as enabling handsfree calls, all via Bluetooth connectivity.

One of the standout items for buyers will be the factory fitted electric sunroof, which comes just in time for summer. Also included in the Trio pack is front fog lamps, giving the Barina a boost in front-on visual appeal and increased visibility in bad weather, and a ‘Trio’ badge on the back.

Normally priced at over $2000 (if bought separately), Holden is offering the Trio pack for $1000 to the first 450 customers for 2014. Holden’s director of marketing, Bill Mott, said,

“The Barina is already an exciting, energetic and appealing small car but with the ‘Trio’ pack we dial up the fun a little more.

“The introduction of MyLink gives drivers a wealth of technology at their fingertips, and will allow them to experience a premium feature, without the premium price.”

The Trio pack is only available for Barina CD hatch models, with prices kicking off at $15,390. All models are covered by a three-year/100,000km warranty.

So far this year Holden Australia has sold 5060 examples of the Barina, giving it 6.5 per cent market share. It competes with rivals such as the Hyundai i20 (11,285) and the Mazda2 (10,143).
