    Barina

    Just been 'playing' and looking at www.chevrolet.com , came across the Kuwait cars and the Barina (Astra g in disguise, but with a different and quite pleasing front end.

    Yeah the Barina is the Corse in Australia, New Zealand - I was trawling through the images - this is much more astra than corsa - and only called the Barina in the Middle East

    OK - its no GSi - I just liked the variation on styling withthe lines below the lights, and the upright looking fog lights

    Its a halfway car - neither a Corsa or an Astra by the looks of it.

    Look at the A pillars , and it has Astra looks (sweeping in to the bonnet line), but the door handles and lights are decidedly Corsa C)

    Come on - someone on here must be going to Saudi Arabia on here?

    ITS A CORSA SEDAN

    They have alsways made them, but never sold them in this country and that is the new corsa C version.
