April 2 becomes the day for the Official Launch of Chevrolet Spark Beat in US and Korea
The 2016 Spark (Beat) by Chevrolet is already creating waves with the teaser image that was released earlier, much prior to its world premiere, to be held on April 2. The car is the next generation model of Spark, and it has already been spied testing in Korea.
The Spark (Beat) was recently spotted devoid of any camouflage and that is when all its cosmetic details could be seen, and it can be said that this latest iteration shares underpinnings with the likes of Vauxhall Viva and Opel Karl. The grille sported by the fascia is a split looking design and complete with chrome embellishment. The round fog lamps in the front are also surrounded with subtle chrome linings. Near the C-pillars in the window frame are mounted rear door handles.
The luxury quotient and premium feel that the car will be seen as lent by the alterations in the cabin of the vehicle. The list of features is expected to include cruise control, infotainment system, heated front seats, sun roof, heated steering wheel and park assist. The engine powering this 2016 Spark is 1litre 3-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine. This new addition comes with an ability of churning out 90bhp or 110bhp power and comes mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. The General Manager International of design shed light on the new Spark’s design by stating that the quirkiness and youth of original Spark will be retained and to it will be added traditional proportions.
The official release of this tested model by Chevrolet will finally occur on April 2 at the New York and Seoul auto shows. Post-its official launch the model will be ready to be sold in the markets of United States and Korea. This hatchback with a highly sporty styling is bound to attract customers in India too and it is hoped that Chevrolet will soon bring this 2016 model to India too.
