The early models of the Chevrolet Spark were admittedly quite odd in appearance. This was especially true when it donned orange paintwork, making it look like fruit on wheels. Jokes aside, the little Chevrolet has slowly morphed into a rather stylish number. And around 10 or so years later, the latest iteration, which is set to hit Chevrolet Philippines showrooms real soon, looks anything but weird.
The front fascia, for instance, boasts a sleek set of headlights flanking the signature two-piece Bowtie brand grille. Not only does this tie it in with the rest of the Chevrolet family; it actually makes it look a tad sportier. There are even cool LED park lights that help improve visibility, as well as up the chic factor.
Speaking of modern, The Covenant Car Company Inc, official Chevrolet Philippine importer and distributor, promises to pack the little Spark with quite a lot of niceties once it arrives in the country. The latest MyLink infotainment system will allow occupants to pair their mobile device and listen to their favorite tunes and media in a seamless manner.
Despite its smallish stance, the latest Chevrolet Spark will come with big car features, such as versatile 60/40 split-fold rear seats, power-folding and heated outside mirrors, and an equally spacious cabin. And hauling all this along is a class-leading 1.4-liter DOHC 16-valve Ecotec motor, mated to a Continuously Variable Transmission. This makes for adequate punch mixed with excellent fuel economy.
Plus, the diminutive Spark packs kit like dual SRS airbags, traction and stability control, and anti-theft system just to name a few safety features. It’s all there in the name of occupant protection.
The 2017 Chevrolet Spark is set to arrive in the Philippines in March.
