Did you know there's something very wrong with the Australian automotive industry? We are not referring to the fact that Ford and Holden decided to close every manufacturing plant from the Land Down Under in a few years' time. We're referring to a matter of utmost importance from our point of view.
As it happens, the Holden Barina, which is the Aussie variant of the second-generation (T300) Chevrolet Sonic / Aveo, has received what Holden calls the Trio exclusive package. The Trio is basically a limited edition run of the subcompact hatchback, with production capped to a mere 450 examples.

Now imagine this scenario - you're at a boring social event organized by the company you work for. There you see the sexiest chick you ever laid your eyes upon. She strolls to you, then you dance, laugh and then comes the time for everybody to go home. She doesn't have a car and asks for a ride. And while you both walk to the parking lot, she poses a question.

"Hey stud, what car are you driving?" I'm pretty sure you can imagine that "A limited-run Holden Barina" is not the type of answer expected. The limited-run part will make you look like a pretentious prick, while the Holden Barina is a volume product that doesn't even scratch the low-end of premium motoring.

To boot, the Holden Barina Trio is just a fancier Hatch CD specification model that adds fog lights, an electric sunroof and a seven-inch touchscreen media system. Not exactly limited-run specialness, innit?

Editor's note: put your money where your mouth is and get a Commodore VF. That hottie will love it!
