The Chevrolet Spark has been around for quite some time now and it has not got any changes and unlike big brother the Beat, it is not exactly a futuristic looking car. Those things might change when GM introduces a new look Spark by end of this year. This is not a all new model or having any engine changes but a mid-life facelift to spruce things up a bit.

Chevrolet in 2012 has launched the new Spark with a lot of changes. General Motors has revamped the styling of the new Spark which now features the Chevrolet corporate grille upfront with the bow-tie logo in the center.

Towards the rear the bumper and the tail lights have been sculpted with a  refresh in mind. The interior of the car remains the same with the instrument cluster in the center of the dashboard.

Chevrolet has gone ahead to please its customers by providing various good features in the car and thus the car brings very good level of kit to its buyers such as center mounted stop lamp, door ajar warning display, central locking and optional ABS and driver side airbag. Spark brings basic amenities like the air conditioner with heater. Chevy Spark hatchback also has power steering, power windows and rear defogger and remote fuel filler release.

Pros Great Looks, comfortable, silent engine

Cons High maintenance, pathetic service

Chevrolet Spark is a good car, but only if you want to keep it for less than 3 years. It is comfortable, good looking, and has a silent cabin. But all this comes at a steep price. ServiceSpare part prices are exorbitant when compared to MarutiHyundai vehicles of similar price range. Irrespective of what is shown on website, anything not mentioned there costs a fortune. For example, pair of fog lamps with fitting costs Rs. 4500. AC Condenser costs 6000. A simple wheel alignment and balancing job will set you off by 1000 rupees. I've driven the car for just 6500 km, but have already visited workshop 5 times for various problems in 5 months. GM believes in selling and forgetting. After sales is practically non existent, and the company is slow to do any repairs under warranty. So you will be expected to leave car with them for days for any minor repair. Spark inherits the poor anti rusting protection from Matiz. Exhaust pipe has already started rusting in my 5 month old car, and I've observed rust in sharp under body parts. It is only a matter of time that the body paint will start bubbling. AC of spark gives frequent problems. Comfortable inside and silent cabin features of Spark get nullified as one has to drive with windows rolled down during midday, when the AC is as good as non existent. I pressed GM workshop (Regent Automobiles, Mathura Road) to fix various glitches (headlight bulb fusing, AC not working, central clock getting reset frequently), but was politely reminded that I was expecting too much from their lowest end car. Before buying this car, please give me a mail, and I'll explain my horrible experience in detail to anyone willing to hear. I've spent 4 Lakhs of my hard earned cash on Spark LT model, and there are simply no buyers at even 3 lakhs, just 5 months after the purchase.

Chevy Spark Quite decent !!!!!!!!!!
Posted on 8 Sep 08 at 6:32 am

Pros Good mileage, & a great valued car according to price

Cons cant say less comfortable but yes not upto the mark.

Hello friends, I have gone through the reviews which has already been written by my good friends & i found some of them too be the most shocking me myself owns a Spark LS model since last 5 months i drove it about 5000kms but hasnt found any of the foibles my friends are talking about even i am in contact with 2 of my friends & they feel the same way i did. it has a great mileage even with Ac on.i want to clear one thing most importantly that it posses the best AC in its class. engine is silent & very smooth. there is no feeling of vibration in the steering even on the bumpy drives. it is offereing most of the features which u can only be able to take in above 4lacs vehicle. we r very much satisfied with the quality of spark which it is providing. 63ps at 5500 rpm what more with 14.7kmpl in city average great AC a decent looking car.... i think so i think that most of you are fully aware of the fact that GM is the world no.1 company in automobiles as far as serive is concerned once the car has been sold u have to go thru the miffs of the dealer. but still i will strongly recomend u spark if u planning for a great valued car i.e abot3-4lacs. A great car & i will also recomend to those people who r giving negative reviews that guys u r having a defected piece or u r talking about some other car.......

SPARK LPG Problems
Posted on 24 Nov 10 at 11:21 am

Pros Great Looks and less jerks , so comfortable

Cons LPG Filter Kit problems

GM India has really done a lot to produce eco-friendly cars like SPARK LPG. AVEO& BEAT with LPG version may come next year.Took a SPARK LPG version more than an year back in Kolkata. But unfortunatley the SPARK LPG version has some REAL PROBLEMS with the LPG Factory fitted KIT. This has been done by a third party which GM India knows. Almost after every 2 months it starts giving problems with the LPG Filter. It gets choked and the car stops in the midway when it tries to change automatically to LPG Mode. In petrol mode it runs fine The workshop experts hv also got frustated with it. Hope GM India helps in Changing the LPG Kits.
