Its wheelbase stretches for 2345mm.
Editor's Take : The front row space in the Spark is good and even the quality of the plastics is decent. It being tall, the headroom is decent.
The modeling beauty of a company like this has been tried, tested and built on the very soundest measurements. Their vehicles are a blended marvel of class and comfort served together in one exalting cabin feel, and this model is no different. This is a car that carries a delicate build but a strong spirit. It has an inner atmosphere complete on all features and a cabin aura that soaks in the finest for its passengers. The cabin is decorated for the most intense ride environments a machine could promise. The machine builds a homely world inside of it with the aid of all aspects of the cabin. Large comfortable seats exhaust the needs of the passengers. They are also molded and stitched with the finest materials put together. Fine wood accents together layer the interior, with imprints of the best metallic materials as well. The seats are electrically adjustable, and have support functions including headrests and armrest. Premium leather upholstery decorates the inside of the vehicle, completing the comfort offered by the seats and the atmosphere of the inside. A finely designed dashboard sits upfront, integrated with all the functions of the vehicle. Cool wood inserts form the dashboard and door panels, making for a far more luxurious feel within the cabin. The stylized, steering wheel has the emblem of Chevy adorned atop it, and is incorporated with features to hone the control for the driver. Well finished, coolly shaped AC vents bring the best circulation of the environment and the air inside of it.
The cabin is designed to host the highest of elegance in terms of comfort, and it succeeds on all rounds possible. The fine leather stitching, the modern finishes and additional leather highlights come together to bring the most refined of atmospheres for the passengers to together bask in for the length of the drive. The advanced instrument cluster gives the driver access to the internet, music and to even scribe letters with a mere swipe of a finger. In addition to this, the seats are redesigned with thigh support, meant to ensure the firmest support and positioning for the passengers when seated.
Although this model is small on its external appearance, it is still large and spacious from the inside. It ensures that all men are comfortable inside it, regardless of whether tall, broad or lanky. The seats are wide and well cushioned, equipping its passengers for the best ride quality throughout. The well laid out interior space builds the most fulfilling aura for all the occupants, going alongside a large trunk space to seal its features off in all.
Editor's Take : The acceleration of the Spark is decent and is good even while driving in daily bumper-to-bumper city traffic.
This is a vehicle with a good and steady build. However, although it is small and compact, its speed and acceleration capacity do not fall short. It can score as a powerful model in its segment. Its 1.0-litre engine can boost it to a top speed of 153 Kmph, probably better than most of its variety. Furthermore, it can race from naught to 100 Kmph within just 15 seconds, which is a rather remarkable figure.
Editor's Take : The performance of this 1.0-litre engine is good and we should forget the fact that it isn’t built for outright acceleration.
The 1.0-litre engine surpasses is quite peppy and has a displacement value of 995cc. The might of this powertrain is also expressed through a max power of 61hp, and a peak torque at 86Nm. The capacity of the engine translates smoothly into raw power with the help of an excellent 5-speed manual transmission gearbox. All of this channels the best performance for this compact machine. It can soar to a top speed of 153 Kmph, and can gun the 100kmph mark in about 15 seconds.
Editor's Take : The mileage of the Spark is good, and hence it is competitive in the A+ segment.
A company like this is advanced in its grasp of the trade, and as a result, its engineering capacity resounds on every feature of the vehicle’s build. It invokes a good performance with its vehicles, but at the same time, it also ensures that the mileage and fuel savings are not left out. A precision of harmony between these two fundamental and vital elements is secured with the high grade engineering this company commands. This is always sealed with all other models of this company, but with this model, it goes many miles further. This is a car that has a rather sub-standard speed capacity, along with a trim and timid build. As a result, the mileage and fuel savings are honed to the sharpest possible measure. This model boasts possibly among the best mileage values, standing tall at 16.2 kmpl. It gathers its fumes and makes for a ride experience that combines function and form, along with the best interests of the passengers, driving towards the best quality one could ask for.
Editor's Take : The power of the Spark is good for its engine size and when compared to competition. On paper also it is good enough.
This car maker has proved its point with regards to speed and performance capacity, with machines that boast engine and might like few others on the road. However, this is a car that is made for a softer and more human touch in its make, and as a result, its performance capacity is perhaps not as hard-wired as the other models of this company, and of premium brands in general. This model has a 1.0-litre engine that has an impressive displacement value of 995cc, which one would term as ‘impressive’ considering the segment of vehicle that this is, along with its size, build and its overall purpose. Furthermore, it guns a peak power of 61bhp, which is also pretty decent for its class. Its peak torque stands at 86Nm. All of this put together, it can touch rather good top speeds and acceleration points.
Editor's Take : The Spark’s range topper gets all-four power windows, music system, power steering and even AC. The music system supports USB and aux connectivity.
It is gifted with a host of other benefits that make for an organic and fulfilling drive. It has an advanced radio system, complete with stereo, USB, CD player and all the fundamental features that passengers today regard a vehicle to be able to dispose of. Dual tone interiors and the so called ‘optimax’ cabin as its manufacturer names it, together ensure that the drive is kept flawless with all comfort features ever taken care of. An ambient foot well lighting gives the ride a touch of brilliance as well.
Editor's Take : The handling of the Spark is decent and even the brakes are good on it.
It has a set of firm brake calipers arming the front and the rear brakes. Disc brakes arm the front and the rear brakes are gifted with drums. The suspension system is also top notch. The front axle has McPherson strut with anti roll bars. The rear axle has the standard torsion beam axle. In addition to this, the overall mannerism of the car, compact, well trimmed and all-stable in its design, ensures that the drive is kept tightened always. Therefore, the handling of this compact machine is sealed to its very best.
A vehicle from this company is expected to whoosh past all borders in its build. This model does not compromise, and is complete with the best safety measures needed to rule the roads. It is equipped with tight seatbelts, keeping the passengers strapped-in always. Also, well cushioned airbags give them ample protection at all times. Furthermore, the body format of this vehicle is a mighty, impact resistant one, meant to absorb collisions to the maximum extent possible. The braking system is up-to-date, ensuring that nothing is thrown aside. The suspension system is also tightened and kept well poised always, and the best stability in driving is put forth always. All of this and more together ensures that everything is kept under the tightest control for the driver, and that mighty performance and elegance are wrapped up with the finest safety qualities possible.
It has a set of 13 inch steel wheels, presented in an stunning format. A well enabled set of tyres to go along with it. The wheels and their fenders further enhance the overall appeal of the car.
1. Great performance, especially for its segment.
2. Lavish and well sculpted build, attractive exterior format.
3. Polished interior format, giving the best comfort features and accessories to its passengers.
4. It is very cheap, possibly among the cheapest builds ever.
5. Technologically advanced and sophisticated from both inside and out.
1. It is a very weak performer when put forth before other contenders.
2. Compared to other models of this company, it lacks elements of comfort and luxury.
3. Weak mileage when weighing it on its performance and size scale.
4. It has a low ground clearance.
5. Possibly among the smallest cars ever made.

General Motors today introduced a Limited Edition version of its entry-level hatchback- Spark in India. Priced between INR 3.44 to 3.99 lakhs (ex. Showroom, New Delhi), the hatch has received some minor updates inside as-well-as on the outside. “The stylish, frugal and spacious city car with superior SMARTECH engine technology appeals to all aspirational first-time buyers and young nuclear families across India,” said Arvind Saxena, President and Managing Director of GM India. “With the launch of another limited edition model with more features, GM India has sought to exceed the expectations of its customers,” Mr Saxena added.
Following the global reveal of the Spark Electric Vehicle in Los Angeles last year, Chevrolet's all-new battery-powered mini car will be presented to a European audience for the first time at this year's Geneva Motor Show. The car will be sold in select European markets as of 2014.
Chevrolet has announced at the Los Angeles Auto Show that by early next year, the US versions of the Chevrolet Spark and Sonic/Aveo will incorporate the Siri software. Through the cars’ standard Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system, customers with a compatible iPhone (4S and newer) running iOS 6 can direct Siri to perform a number of tasks while they safely keep their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel. To further minimise distraction, Siri takes hands-free functionality even further with an Eyes Free mode that enables users to interact with their iPhone using nothing more than their voice while keeping the device’s screen from lighting up.
