    Holden does it again

    I thought this is a clever approach to advertising by Holden for the new Barina RS

    When will Caddy give me a chance to buy one?

    Fantastic!

    Perhaps GM needs to consider promoting some Holden marketing employees to GMNA, because they're churning out some fantastic stuff. The creative is good (likely an agency), but so is the strategy that's coming from Holden.

    In addition to that - I think I like the Barina name better than Sonic.

    I agree, they could do wonders with Chevy.

    Well done by everyone - the guys included but is this seen on TV? I haven't seen it yet.

    One of the things that was mentioned during the launch of this model Barina was they wanted to steer it away from being known as a "female" car, and personally i thought the best thing they could do for that was to call it a Sonic (which I prefer). But i guess being from the US you probably don't associate "Barina" with the previous successful marketing campaigns aimed at women.



    ...Honestly though, Can't wait to get a drive of an RS. I really love the CDX I've been driving around.
