Chevrolet revealed its all-new 2013 Spark mini car November 16 at the Los Angeles International Auto Show. The Spark is the only car in its segment to offer a seven-inch color touch screen radio capable of displaying smart phone-based navigation, media and contacts for hands-free calling.
A sporty four-passenger, five-door hatch updated for United States and Canadian consumers, the Spark is designed to excite first-time buyers and city dwellers with its affordability, the safety of 10 standard air bags, fuel efficiency and maneuverability and bold styling and colors. It includes hues such as Salsa, Jalapeno, Denim, Lemonade and Techno Pink.
Though compact, the Spark offers more passenger and cargo room than other mini cars such as the Fiat 500, Smartfortwo and the Scion iQ. Equipped with the 1.2L four-cylinder engine and five-speed manual transmission, the Spark will also offer its owners competitive fuel economy.
