On Sale: 2011 Chevrolet Spark

Published Feb 12, 2010

LONDON — The all-new 2011 Chevrolet Spark has begun reaching European dealers. It's priced from around $10,900, including local taxes. This figure includes standard air-conditioning and power accessories.

At the car's European media launch, General Motors confirmed that versions of the Spark also will be built in the U.S. and India. The Spark was launched in India in January as the Chevrolet Beat, priced from $7,200. The five-door hatchback initially went on sale last fall in Korea.

When the Chevy Spark arrives in North America, most likely as a 2012 model, it will be the smallest Chevrolet in the brand's U.S. portfolio. The five-passenger Spark measures only 143 inches long, nearly a foot shorter than the Chevrolet Aveo hatchback.

It's built on GM's global minicar architecture and aimed primarily at city dwellers. GM says the Spark will be sold in more than 100 markets around the world by 2013.

In Europe, the Chevrolet Spark is available with two gasoline engines: a 67-horsepower 1.0-liter unit and an 80-hp 1.2-liter unit. Both engines are rated at 46 mpg on the combined European driving cycle and emit 119 g/km of CO2. A five-speed manual gearbox is standard.

Inside Line says: Not quite as small as a Smart, the 2012 Chevrolet Spark should be an interesting alternative for frugal shoppers and first-time buyers when it arrives in the States. — Paul Lienert, Correspondent

What a terrible, vile, disgusting car. The should have named it the Chevy Hitler-Mussolini-Stalin-Pol Pot-Seacrest, that is how atrocious this car is.

Except it actually doesn't look horrible and could make waves in the size class.

:lol:

Well, I saw half a dozen of these being unloaded from a trasnport truck last Thursday in Lisbon and it's not that bad. It looks horrible in silver, looks great in the metallic green colour seen in the 1st pics we saw, and it looks good in refrigerator white and in the blue colour featured in the article photos.

If you want your V8 engines you had better show some love for this car. You don't have to like it just respect it and hope it sells. In todays world you need to take the bad with the good.

Did they just replace the front fenders with Headlights?

Alas, with the demise of Pontiac, no new G2 based on the Spark. :( But this is an opportunity for a Buick Sparrow.

+1. The more tiny cars they sell to the masses, the more potential for V8 enthusiast models.

Which is sad, given the runaway success of the G3 which is what (according to C&G) Jesus, Mother Theresa and George Washington would drive.
