2013 Chevrolet Spark Mini Introduced at LA Auto Show

2011 LA Auto Show

Chevy’s mini car has debuted in LA and is set to hit the showrooms midway through next year.

The only car in its range to offer a 7-inch color touchscreen radio capable of displaying smart phone based navigation, media and contacts for hands-free calling, the 2013 Chevy Spark mini car is a sporty 4-door hatch that is trying to crack the US and Canadian markets. Aimed at city dwellers and first-time buyers, it boasts 10 standard air bags, in addition to a host of award-winning safety technologies; excellent fuel efficiency; and maneuverability.

It also offers more passenger and cargo room than the Fiat 500, Scion iQ and Smartfortwo and is the only car in its segment to provide a five-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty. The 85hp 1.2-liter engine is linked to a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission and both the 1LT and 2LT models will have the exclusive MyLink infotainment system when they go on sale in mid-2012. Exterior finishes range from Jalapeno, Lemonade and Techno Pink to Silver Ice and Black Granite, and the interior gets ice blue ambient lighting as well as a/c and power windows.

Chris Perry, Vice president of global Chevrolet marketing and strategy said: "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. Spark's vibrant exterior and interior colors make a fashion statement, but it is also affordable, safe, maneuverable and very fuel-efficient."
