While we can’t for the day the Chevrolet Spark is available in showrooms across the U.S., certain countries around the world already have the pleasure of being able to buy the fun city car. Most recently, India’z ZigWheels got some quality time behind the wheel of a Spark and came away with a very positive review – commending the design and handling of the city car, but somewhat downplaying the engine’s performance.
As you may know, the Indian car market puts much more emphasis on price compared to U.S. and European car buyers. In the end, this translates to different standards upon which to evaluate vehicles (read: soft-touch materials a not a priority).
The all-new Spark has begun production at the Halol Plant in India. GM India hopes that this all-new mini car will boost sales and lead to a significant increase in market share, given the division’s recent sales numbers in the country. When the all-new Spark goes on sale in India, the current-generation spark will move downmarket (read: price reduction) to become the Spark Classic. The two vehicles are not related.
