The new Chevy Spark will make its appearance in Deutchland this coming September for The Frankfurt Motor show. This mini car made famous by Transformers 2 will be available in most parts of Europe by the beginning of 2010 will initially be offered with 2 choice of newly developed powerplant which is the 1.0 liter & 1.2 liter all aluminium petrol engine. For the moment, both power are channeled to the front wheels via 5 speed manual gearbox with the 1.2 liter variant set to make the 0-100 km/h sprint in 12.4 seconds while returning a combined fuel consumption of under 5.0lt/100 km (47+ mpg US). GM should be offering the automatic transmission variant later judging by the interior shots below. The US market will be ushering this baby GM in first half of 2011. I foresee this model following the footsteps of the Chevy Cruze that will help GM improve its financial status if GM decides to throw in a generous amount of standard kit. I personally like the aggressive front end with its over sized Chevy grill and Headlamp which seems to conjure up an athletic feeling. Rival makes will be the Nissan Micra, Hyundai i10, Kia Picanto & Daihatsu Mira.
