Holden Barina (Vauxhall Opel Corsa) Petrol Diesel 2003 2006

About the Holden Barina

The fourth-generation XC Barina was released in April 2001, based on the Opel Corsa C. It was available in Barina 3 Door and Barina 5 Door models with a 1.4 litre 16-valve engine. In September of that year an SRi model with a new 1.8 litre engine joined the line-up. The Barina was awarded the Wheels Car of the Year award for 2001.

In 2003 a decision by Peter Hanenberger (then Holden's managing director) led to the importation of higher-spec SXi three-door and the CD five-door models, to boost sales. The SRi remained unchanged. These newer models did not provide a boost to sales in the face of increasing pricing competition in the market. In 2004, the 1.4 litre models were downgraded, reverting back to their original Barina 3 Door and Barina 5 Door model names.

In the 2008 Used Car Safety Ratings the XC Barina was rated as providing an "better than average" level of occupant protection in the event of an accident, with ANCAP rating the model four out of five stars.
