The Chevrolet Spark may not be one of those cars you immediately think of when you're in-market for an all-new set of wheels, but for many it may be the only choice.

That's because it is an affordable option that simply provides the utility to get from point "A" to point "B."

Not everyone can afford all of the bells and whistles we take for granted in the luxury space.

In a company-issued release distributed today, Chevrolet announced that the all-new 2016 model year Spark will make its very first appearance at the 2015 New York Auto Show (NYIAS). In addition to New York, the Spark will simultaneously appear in Seoul.

Considering the Spark moves the most units in South Korea, followed by The States, it only makes sense to do the reveal this way.

Good on ya, Chevy!

A Spark of Sophistication

Chevrolet's redesigned global minicar to debut in Seoul and New York on April 2


DETROIT – The all-new 2016 Spark will debut on April 2 at the Seoul and New York auto shows, Chevrolet announced today.

A sleeker, more aerodynamic profile and a progressive take on Chevrolet's signature design cues will give the redesigned Spark a more sophisticated aesthetic that reflects the changing tastes of the global minicar market.

"The new Spark's design has evolved and grown up with the segment," said Michael Simcoe, GM International vice president of Design. "The youthful whimsy of the original Spark is still in its genes, but it is conveyed in more traditional proportions that reinforce the customer's refined expectations."

Chevrolet has sold more than 1.1 million Sparks around the world since it went on sale as the Beat in India in late 2009. Today, the Spark is available in 71 markets worldwide, selling the most in South Korea, followed by the United States and Mexico.

Spark is attracting younger and first-time car buyers to Chevrolet with 26 percent being under the age of 35.

Sales of the Spark in the U.S. are up 32 percent in the first two months of 2015 versus the same period in 2014.
