2013 Chevrolet Spark




These are pictures of the US version.
Which seems to be a little different than the one already on sale in most of the world.
The front end carries a much larger grille. And the interior features an available 7 inch touch screen that can display info from your phone. Including navigation.
Which looks like a pretty nice feature.
It is coming here with a 1.2 Liter engine and a 5 speed manual.
Available mid 2012 as a 2013 model.


Here is the overseas model, on sale since 2009 in most markets.

I saw a Spark parked in downtown Portland and I have to say it's very cute. It looks sporty and fun. At the same time, it looks awkward and a bit over-styled. In the end, the Hyundai Accent and Kia Rio are much more attractive and seem to be less quirky looking. Even the aging Honda Fit still looks on par with the new Spark. Also, I don't think people shopping for a subcompact would ever consider a Chevy. That's why most of the Aveos sold are rental cars. I believe that the Asians car companies will rule in this segment.

My knee jerk reaction was to hate it. But it actually looks pretty decent. I don't like the wheels though.

The front end looks like the scene in beatleguice when Alec Baldwin puts his fingers in his eyes and nose and stretches them out

Too-large bulging headlights, weird side panel slashes and indentations, tiny wheel openings and tires, a 1980s Korean econocar rear end... but hey, the interior and the front grill look great.

The American made Cruze and other Daewoo derivatives, have benefited by being upgraded for the North American market, with better safety features and higher quality interiors. We just don't have much interest in the cheap trim on many of them, and now we get something better.
