The Chevrolet Spark has been updated for the 2013 model year with a new flagship specification and fresh styling details. An urban delivery vehicle, the Spark Pronto, has also been added to the range.
The revised Spark sees a number of exterior and interior styling enhancements including a larger grille, new headlamp design and turn signals integrated into the side mirrors. Alloy wheels in 14- or 15-inch sizes show off new designs, while new tail lamps, a restyled bumper and triangular chomed tailpipe are visible from behind.
As with the LS models, cars bearing the new LT designation will carry a roof spoiler and high-mounted brake light as standard. Specific to the LT is an optional ‘sports style decal’ kit in white, silver and black for the bonnet, roof panel, tailgate and roof spoiler.
For 2013, the Spark’s interior is updted with new fabrics and designs, the centre console’s ergonomics and styling have reportedly been improved and the interior trim is matched to the car’s exterior paint finish.
Specification levels across the range are high; the entry-level Spark Campus introduced late last year comes with aircon, ABS and EDB, dual front airbags and central locking.
Along with Campus, L, LS, and LT specification levels, the Pronto delivery vehicle also forms part of the Spark line-up. Pronto has a payload of 275kg with the rear passenger and boot area converted into a flat cargo area. The driver and front passenger area is separated from the load space by a tubular divider.
All models are powered by a four-cylinder 1.2-litre engine generating 60kW/108Nm. GMSA quotes a fuel consumption figure of 5.4 litres/100km and CO2 emissions of 129g/km.
