AA New Zealand Motoring Writers Guild Car of the Year 2016
The AA NZMWG is considered by many to be the most prestigious of the Car of the Year awards to win, so it is with huge pride to announce the new Holden Spark has been selected as one of the ten finalists.
It could be said that the new model is proof that biggest in not always best. The exciting new small car offers outstanding value for money as well as many features, for standard, which often aren’t included on larger and more expensive models.
Holden Spark comes with six airbags which helps deliver a five-star safety rating, while cruise control and remote central locking add to creature comforts.
A 7-inch touchscreen displays Holden MyLink infotainment with phone projection featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto/Bluetooth. Satellite navigation is also delivered via phone projection.
Electronic Stability Control including Hill Start Assist provides further functionality, while a three year warranty and three year road side assistance creates further peace of mind.
Spark features a zippy 1.4-litre engine with combined fuel economy as low as 5.2l/100km. All of this in the Spark LS, from only $16,490 RRP.
For those who want even a little bit more from their small car, the top of the line Spark LT adds keyless entry, keyless start, rear-view camera and rear park assist.
As part of the awards, motoring enthusiasts have a chance to vote for their own favourite car in the people’s choice award, with some great prizes up for grabs. Visit aa.co.nz/voteandwin to give your support to the smallest car in the finals.
