All models of the Barina are rebadged versions of other cars, including ‘Suzuki Cultus’, ‘Opel Corsa’ and most recently ‘Chevrolet Aveo’. The model has also taken inspiration from Daewoo ‘Kalos.’

Recently Holden has decided to celebrate the model’s almost three decade old run by producing a special limited edition model known as the ‘Barina Trio’.
