A new version of the Chevrolet Spark subcompact hatchback will debut alongside the new 2016 Chevrolet Malibu sedan. The 2016 Chevrolet Spark, as seen here in a teaser photo, will also be revealed at the Seoul auto show in South Korea on the same day the car arrives in New York.

Research

The 2016 Chevrolet Spark is said to have a “sleeker, more aerodynamic profile” than today’s model, and the teaser photo hints at a slightly more angled nose and hood, with a more curved roofline leading toward its nearly vertical rear. A large grille opening is, as on most new Chevrolet models, bisected by a thick body-colored bar below the Chevrolet bowtie badge, while angular headlights have running lights extending onto the car’s front fenders.

The Chevrolet Spark is sold in 71 countries worldwide under various labels, including Daewoo Matiz and Chevrolet Beat, with South Korea its most popular sales region, followed by the U.S. and Mexico. The affordable car helps Chevrolet attract younger buyers, as more than a quarter of today’s Spark buyers are under 35.

Currently, the Chevrolet Spark is offered with an 84-hp 1.2-liter inline-four engine and either a 5-speed manual or a continuously variable transmission. Chevrolet also offers an all-electric version of the Spark, which has an 82-mile driving range. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety said the Chevrolet Spark is one of only two subcompact cars (the other is the 2015 Honda Fit) to ace the agency’s small-overlap frontal crash test.
