HOLDEN'S new range-top Barina CDX will start from $20,490 plus on roads when it arrives in showrooms at the end of this month.

The Barina CDX, previewed at last month's Australian International Motor Show, features include the all-new Holden MyLink premium infotainment system, heated front seats as well as a new six-speed automatic transmission in both hatch and sedan and recommended retail price of $20,490 and $20,990 respectively.

Holden marketing manager for small, medium and electric cars, Emma Pinwill said pricing for the new model represents great value for the small car buyer.

 

"At only $2500 more than the equivalent CD model, the CDX represents great value and is loaded with a high level of specifications and features," she said.

MyLink is Holden's entertainment system which runs from a seven-inch colour touch-screen rwhich contols music, videos, photos and contacts for hands-free calling.

Launching with the StitcherTM Smart Radio embedded application, the Holden MyLink system will be supported in the future with additional apps that offer drivers added information and entertainment options, such as Pandora Internet Radio, TuneIn Radio and BringGo Navigation.

In addition to Holden MyLink, Barina CDX highlights include: 17-inch alloys, front foglamps, reverse park sensors, leather steering wheel and transmission shifter, Sportec seat trim, heated front seats, trip computer, storage tray under front passenger seat and chrome exterior accents.

There will be seven colour choices, two shades of white, grey, silver, red, blue and black.
