General Motors has just launched the new 2021 Chevrolet Spark in South Korea, the home country of the automaker’s successful minicar. The sixth model year of the third-generation Spark, first introduced in early 2015, hit the South Korean market with several updates, including two new range-topping editions with more exclusive and highly customizable styling.
Specifically, the two new uplevel variants of the 2021 Chevrolet Spark for Korea are called Red Pick and My Fit. Both are special editions based on the Premier trim level, but with appearance enhancements that emphasize the sporty character of the city car and expand customization options for customers. With them, Chevrolet aims to increase the attractiveness and improve the competitiveness of the Spark against its domestic rivals.
Although the 2021 Spark maintains the exact same exterior design that was introduced with the 2019 model-year facelift, the Red Pick and My Fit versions stand out by adopting a darkened overall finish and adding distinctive detailing. This includes the black Chevrolet bow tie as well as black grille edges, rear view mirrors, 16-inch alloy wheels, and black badging.
The exterior of the 2021 Chevrolet Spark also benefits from an updated palette with up to 10 different body colors, including two new shades named Wonderland Blue and Sunset Orange. A two-tone option is also available, which allows combing the selected base tone with a black roof, as well as multiple accessories and unique accents to give the car unique personality.
All versions of the 2021 Spark continue to be powered by the naturally aspirated 1.4L LV7 I4 engine offering 98 horsepower and 94 pound-feet of torque. The engine can be coupled to the same transmissions available in the current model: a five-speed manual and a continuously variable automatic.
The 2021 Chevrolet Spark is now available through the South Korea dealer network, with a total of six trim levels and an improved list of standard features. Notably, the seat belt warning system now functions for both rows of seats, while the cabin benefits from new LED lighting and eight airbags. The starting prices of each 2021 Spark variant in the South Korean market are as follows:
