Refreshed for 2013, Chevrolet’s iconic mini car gives you dynamic styling, features and performance. Designed for the streets, it’ll take you places other cars can’t. If you have a young family, the Spark is super safe too.
Add in a choice of colours, and four trim levels with different cloth colours, and you have yourself an urban drive that expresses exactly who you are.

Raised wheel-arch design, with single-arc roofline and high-up tail lights, presents the eye-catching Spark as agile and ready for adventure.
And now there’s a remodeled dual-port front grille and bumper to boost the effect. New-style headlamps, set into the sculpted all-metal bodywork, sharpen the streamlined, fuel-efficient silhouette.
Looks you want
Handles to the rear doors are concealed in the D-pillars – at first glance, the Spark could be a sporty three-door. To express who you are on the crowded streets, you have a choice of 8 funky colours. Premium trims offer further brilliant options – such as 15” rather than 14” alloy wheels, satin-silver roof rails, fog lamps, and a third, LED brake light integrated in the rear spoiler.
Whether you’re traveling to a movie, match or nightclub, or out of town to the country, the 5-door Spark moves you and your friends in style and comfort. Smart interior storage includes a main-console bin for items like mobile phones, and a double cup holder by the gear shift. Seat-back pockets, door bins, spacious glove box and driver-side sun visor with ticket holder keep everything you need for your journey close at hand.
Flexible cargo space
Shopping trips and weekends away are fun and easy when you can flip open the large hatch and pile everything into the 170-litre cargo space. For bigger loads, simply fold flat all or part of the back seat, boosting cargo capacity to 568 litres. Bulky sports equipment and DIY materials, party sound systems, tents and sleeping bags, festival provisions, flat-pack furniture, stuff for the home from street markets or online dealers – the Spark moves the lot.
Inside, harmonious design and smart use of every square millimetre make the Spark feel airy and spacious. A sensation you normally only get with bigger cars. Dynamically remodeled, the main console puts all controls constantly at your fingertips.
Moody lights and music
Durable and supportive, the seats have stylish contrast-fabric centres, with leatherette sides a premium option. By night, dramatic ice-blue back lights accent the motorcycle-inspired speedometer and tachometer displays. Connect your iPod or MP3 player to the USB or AUX-in port and set your own city soundtrack.
A high-performance petrol engine with 5-speed manual transmission that suits your needs:
Modern technology 1.2-litre engine – 60kW, top speed 164km/h and acceleration of 0-100km/h in just 13.3 seconds for a crucial city-driving advantage
Light on your pocket and the environment
Advanced aerodynamics and a lighter, more efficient front-wheel-drive layout mean the Spark uses less fuel, saving you money at the pumps. On an extra-urban run of 100km, it’ll consume just 4.5 litres of petrol. Add in CO2 emissions of only 129 grams per kilometre and your driving is kinder on the environment too.
Whether the Spark is your first car or your hundredth, it’s designed and engineered to give you an easy and engaging drive. Advanced suspension and hydraulic power steering make for taut, responsive handling; everything sits on a tight, rigid chassis connecting you firmly with the city streets.
Mini car, big decisions
Just 3.6 metres long and 1.6 metres wide, the super-manoeuvrable Spark takes you where bigger rivals can’t. It’s easy to park in tight city spaces, especially with the rear ultra-sonic park assist with audible alarm (available on Spark LT). And the Spark’s turning circle is a tight 9.9 meters. So if you pass someone you like, or decide you want a pizza after all, it’s easy to do a swift 180 and double back.
Your Spark is fun, but it takes safety seriously. Even if you apply the brakes sharply, each anti-lock disc engages with optimum force, boosting stability and keeping the car responsive to your handling.
Extra safe for children
Outer rear seats also have fixings for standard ISOFIX child seats. No wonder that in official, EU-sponsored tests, the Spark scored maximum points for its ability to protect infant passengers.
If you’re in a collision, the Spark’s advanced steel construction and four independent crumple zones shield the cabin and occupants from harm. 2-4 airbags provide further protection from collisions. Front seatbelts have pretensioners that tension the lap belt to prevent impacts from jerking you forwards; rear seatbelts are three-point design to ease the stress of sudden decelerations.
The Spark LT bumper styling really does make you stand out...even more with the ‘Sport Decal Package”. With four interior trim options, dependent on exterior colour choice…you have a vehicle to match your personality.
The athletic Spark stance adds to the ride and handling of the vehicle, but it adds even more to the look. The Spark LT has a standard 15-inch 5-split-spoke silver-painted wheel but can also rock an available 15-inch machined-face aluminum wheel with gray-painted pockets!
