Chevrolet has stepped into the tiny city car market to compete against the imported vehicles in the genre already. The car Chevy will use to combat the likes of the
is called the
. It will go official on November 16 at the Los Angeles International Auto Show. The small car is aimed at urban drivers that want a highly maneuverable vehicle that fits into tight spaces and gets good fuel economy.
The little car might be small, but it is loaded with safety features and entertainment options. The car has ten standard airbags and OnStar. It also has a 7-inch color touchscreen radio that can display the navigation data from a smartphone. The touchscreen can also display media and contracts as well for hands free calling.
The car at first glance looks like a two door hatchback, but actually has four doors with the handles for the rear doors hidden in the pillars. Chevy is offering the car in some non-traditional colors with yellow, blue, green, and what appears to be pink along with more traditional black and white.
The tiny engine under the hood is a 1.2L 4-cylinder with a scant 85 hp. That engine is coupled with a 5-speed manual or optional 4-speed auto.
“Spark is for buyers who want much more than a ‘cute’ small car – they want a car that can be personalized, is dynamic and fashionable, and delivers a lot of value for the money,” said Chris Perry, vice president, global Chevrolet marketing and strategy. “Spark’s vibrant exterior and interior colors make a fashion statement, but it is also affordable, safe, maneuverable and very fuel-efficient.”
The car will come with the MyLink infotainment system on 1LT and 2LT versions adding Bluetooth capability and access to content on the smartphone. When the car is stopped the screen in the entertainment system can be used for streaming video from a smartphone.
Pricing information is unknown at this time.
