Holden’s New Spark
It may not be ‘news’ to many that the SUV market is currently booming in Australia, but with so many Australians becoming more cost-conscious, the small car market has managed to keep a presence, especially for young drivers and families with second vehicles. So this month we take a look at the all-new Holden Spark.
Previously known as the Holden Barina Spark, Holden have dropped the Barina name plate and have stuck with Spark as a rather fitting name for their bantamweight hero which is due to arrive in showrooms in April.
The new Spark is around $1,100 more expensive than the previous Barina model, priced from $13,990 plus on-roads. Targeted at first-time buyers, it includes an attractive range of class-leading technology such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Siri Eyes Free voice recognition and 7” touch screen. The new Spark also has more customisation options, a zippy 1.4i engine and locally tuned mechanicals.
The Spark will be available in two variants, the LS and the LT. In base LS guise, the Spark features central locking, 60/40 split-fold seats, driver information cluster, steering wheel audio controls, air-conditioning, MyLink infotainment system, USB input, electric power steering and 14-inch steel wheels.
Safety features include ESC, ABS and traction control and hill-start assist.
Buyers stepping up to the LT will gain keyless entry, push-button start, leather-wrapped steering wheel, Sportec seat trim, white interior highlights, rear parking sensors, a reversing camera, cruise control and 15-inch alloy wheels.
People who are considering the Holden Spark should also consider the Nissan Micra, Mitsubishi Mirage, Suzuki Celerio and the soon to be released Kia Picanto.
