"Giving the Barina a sports version called the RS makes sense, it's already a fun car."

Stuff.co.nz Logo

"Using the same 1.4-litre iTi turbocharged four-cylinder found in the Holden Cruze, you get 103kW and 200Nm of torque. When it comes to handling, the RS is surprisingly perky..."

The New Zealand Herald Logo

"On the engine front, smaller is better. Though giving away 200cc in capacity on the Suzuki, Barina has but a three kilowatt advantage on 103kW but grunts up on torque, with 200Nm being a 40Nm advantage..."

Yahoo New Zealand Logo

"The RS will be available only as a hatchback with the six -speed manual priced at $26,490, with the six - speed auto $1500 dearer. That means it's cheaper than the Suzuki Swift Sport and Ford Fiesta Eco..."
