Chevrolet Spark Two Years From U.S. Launch


The model Chevrolet showed offers a good idea of what the one slated for the U.S. will look like, and we checked out its seemingly ready-for-sale interior.


The Spark’s cabin is fairly basic, but keep in mind that it’s supposed to be an entry-level car, like the current Chevy Aveo. It has some interesting design cues, such as a dashboard accented with the exterior color of the car and an analog/digital instrument pod similar to the one in the Aveo RS show car.


The Spark’s front seat offers enough travel for a taller driver to get comfortable, and headroom is good. Even with the seat adjusted for a tall driver, another tall passenger could make a go of it in the backseat for a short trip, though anything longer might lead to protesting of knees being pressed against the back of the front seat and limited thigh support. Headroom isn’t bad in the back of the Spark, either.


Chevrolet was tight-lipped about the Spark’s U.S. engine specifications, but it is still two years away from arriving at U.S. dealerships. That’s a long time in the auto business, especially with Ford’s Fiesta small car scheduled to hit dealerships later this year.
