HOLDEN BARINA Used Car Review

Pros

Cons

  • Neat exterior design
  • RS variant injected some welcome pep into Barina
  • Improved connectivity from 2016 onwards
  • Decent driving manners of XC generation (2001-2005) and latest model
  • Interior quality and equipment lacking prior to 2016
  • 1.6-litre engine is old and lacking performance
  • Struggles to stand out against some strong class contenders
  • Sporty RS was more warm hatch than hot hatch
This is general information and should not be relied on as purchasing advice.

  • Common FAQs
  • The Holden Barina's petrol engines can both run on a range of unleaded fuels and can achieve consumption figures as low as 6.6 L/100 km. The Suzuki Swift can beat this by boasting combined cycle figures of just 4.8 L/100 km.
  • The Holden Barina's six-speed auto can hit a lightning speed of 182 km/h and go from a standing start to 100 km/h in 10.8 seconds. This is fractionally slower than the Kia Rio GT Line that can hit 100 km/h in 9.78 seconds.
  • Holden Barinas carry two engine variants with a 1.4-litre four-cylinder turbo driving the RS and 1.6 -litre fuel injected engines powering the LS, LT, X CD, CDX and CD R Pack models, delivering 85kW of power and 155Nm of torque.
  • A 2001 Holden Barina with a manual transmission and 300,000kms on the clock can be found on Gumtree for as little as $1,000 or choose a 2015 six-speed auto hatch from $12,990. By way of comparison a 2015 Toyota Yaris could be yours for under $10,000.
  • The Holden Barina, produced for the Australian market in South Korea by General Motors, has developed a reputation for good looks and equally good fuel economy and performance. It compares favourably with others in its class including the Ford Fiesta.

Servicing

SIMILAR MODELS TO HOLDEN BARINA

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: HOLDEN BARINA (2011 ON)

The first thing to check on any automatic Barina is that it selects all the gears properly and without hesitation. Count the gears as the car shifts up through them.

Don't forget to make sure Reverse selects promptly from Park, too. On the road, make sure the gearbox isn't slipping or flaring between gears as this is a sure sign of a worn gearbox.

Check the area around the coolant pump for leaks and check that the coolant level is correct in the expansion tank.

Barinas were also hard on engine mounts and a car with a broken mount can often be identified by a clunk when selecting a gear or when driving over a bump that sets up a vibration which feels like it's shaking the whole car.

Check that everything electrical in the Barina works as it should, too.
