Chevrolet has released details concerning the 2013 Chevrolet Spark ultra-compact hatchback ahead of its debut this week at the Los Angeles International Auto Show. The 2013 Chevrolet Spark is a "mini car" that will represent the smallest automobile ever sold by the domestic brand in the United States, and which will be positioned underneath the well-received Chevrolet Sonic in the automaker's lineup.
The 2013 Chevrolet Spark, which is currently available for sale outside of America, will offer seating for as many as four passengers inside a four-door hatchback design that integrates its rear access points into the body work to give it the appearance of a coupe. Like the MINI Cooper, the Spark offers a stanced-out, wheel-at-each-corner design that improves stability and maximizes interior volume (up to 31.2 cubic feet of total storage room behind the two front positions). Chevrolet has given the Spark a somewhat sporty appearance, with aero-inspired exterior trim and an host of eyeball-grabbing colors that further add to what the brand is hoping will be the vehicle's youthful charm. The Spark is aimed primarily at young, first-time car buyers.
