Chevrolet pulled the sheet off the face-lifted 2013 Chevrolet Spark this morning, and also disclosed a bit about what we can expect upon its American and Canadian launch.
It’s now been confirmed that GM will implement a bitty 1.2-liter Ecotec four pot that will deliver 83 horsepower for the gas-powered U.S.-spec model. It will come standard with a five-speed manual, while an automatic transmission will be made available. Obviously, fuel economy is the main focus with this here powerplant. To top it all off, Chevy has also announced that the Spark will be available in an electric variant at a later time.
While the engine power is nothing to get excited about, Chevy noted in the press release that options for the 2013 Spark will include Chevy MyLink, Bluetooth, heated leatherette seats, chrome accents, and alloy wheels. Not bad for a car designated to compete with the Fiat 500 and Scion iQ.
