Launching with the StitcherTM Smart Radio embedded application, the Holden MyLink system will be supported in the future with additional apps that offer drivers added information and entertainment options, such as Pandora Internet Radio, TuneIn Radio and BringGo Navigation.

In addition to Holden MyLink, Barina CDX highlights include: 17-inch alloys, front foglamps, reverse park sensors, leather steering wheel and transmission shifter, Sportec seat trim, heated front seats, trip computer, storage tray under front passenger seat and chrome exterior accents.
