Chevrolet revealed the 2017 Spark Activ ahead of the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show as another option for subcompact buyers looking for more of a crossover-like experience. However, those in Australia who may like the idea of a more rugged Spark will be disappointed.
“The Chevrolet Spark Activ looks like a great car, however we have nothing to announce at this time. Holden will concentrate its small SUV offering on the recently announced redesigned Trax,” Mark Flintoft, Holden spokesperson, said.
While Australia misses out, Europe also gains a more rugged subcompact. The Opel Karl Rocks takes a nearly identical formula with a raised ride height of 0.4 inches and trail-inspired body panels.
