    The original Holden Astra

    Yes, sad as it may seem, this here is the original Holden Astra. Based on the rather vile design of the Nissan Cherry. It sucks. Same way the Alfa Romeo Arna




    Arna

    CRAP SIGNATURE

    Coz the Barina originally was a Suzuki Swift/Cultus from the late 80's until they began to use the Corsa B as their copy.

    Oh, the Nissan was here called the Pulsar which was the copy till the late 80's. Then the Astra F came along and didn't sell well at all.

    A lot of 4WD have bull bars and also roam in the city. I personally would also have one on though it wouldn't be nice on the otherside should one get knocked over by one.
