GM Korea and Chevrolet have issued invitations for a new vehicle reveals, and the brand plans to show off the new Spark locally.
The invite did not provide details on the new Spark, presumably a 2019 model, but Chevrolet Korea will reveal the pint-sized vehicle on May 23.
It’s unclear if the new Chevrolet Spark will boast a reworked design, powertrain changes and more. Chevrolet recently revealed the 2019 Spark for North America, which adds an updated front fascia with a larger grille opening, more fluid lines and headlights integrated with the grille itself.
The powertrain is unchanged for 2019; a 1.4-liter four-cylinder LV7 engine provides the go, and a manual or continuously variable transmission (CVT) automatic handle shifting duties.
As for additional features, there aren’t any for North America, but Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking joins the optional Driver Confidence Package.
The vehicle reveal follows turmoil at GM Korea. The automaker and state government recently agreed to a $7 billion bailout package to keep the entity in business. The local union also agreed to numerous concessions.
