Now­wood­enit be nice ...

Some bright spark has de­signed this for gen Y, writes Paul Gover

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Onroad -

IS THIS the way the Holden Spark will look when it gets to show­rooms? Not likely, but it shows the youth­ful fun fac­tor on tap for a car to be sold along­side the Ba­rina at GM Holden deal­ers.

The woody wagon look was added to the Spark in Europe as a sum­mer teaser and a way to lure gen Y buy­ers to the car, which car­ries a Chevro­let badge on the other side of the world.

It will have a sim­i­lar starter spot when it reaches Aus­tralia, as Holden goes for a dou­ble-edged ef­fort with the Ba­rina and Ba­rina Spark next year.

There is no news yet on the likely price or ar­rival of the new mod­els, but the new Ba­rina — called the Chevro­let Aveo — is al­ready be­ing tested and Holden is be­lieved to be wait­ing for the new­comer be­fore go­ing two up in the baby-car class.

At­ten­tion-grab­ber: the Chevro­let Aveo with its wooden liv­ery, which is just for fun.
