Apr 01 2015 06:35 PM | New York Auto ShowAside from the Mailbu, Chevrolet has another showing for New York; the 2016 Spark.
The Spark's exterior appears to been molded around the Sonic, while borrowing the front grille from the SS. Chevrolet says the model rides on a longer wheelbase and that the vehicle has been dropped by 1.6 inches to improve aerodynamics. Inside gets better materials and improved technology.

Power comes from a 1.4L EcoTec four-cylinder with 98 horsepower - an increase of 16 percent when compared to the current 1.2L engine. Drivers will have the choice of either a five-speed manual or CVT.

The concept gives us a preview into the upcoming Civic which will be coming out this fall. Riding on a longer wheelbase, Honda's designers gave the Civic a short front overhang, long hood, a greenhouse that has been set back, and a small rear end. This look gives the Civic an athletic look.
"Charismatic, connected and athletic, our goal was to create a design that is emotional and sporty yet with a sense of timelessness and simplicity," said Guy Melville-Brown, Chief Exterior desi...
