Chevrolet Spark 800
Chevrolet Spark 800 PreviewRumors and speculations have been rife since a really long time about an all-new Chevrolet Spark hatchback with a smaller 800cc engine to rival the likes of Maruti Suzuki Alto 800, the Tata Nano, the Hyundai Eon and the recently launched Datsun Go. It was back in 2010 when a General Motors’ official had confirmed the development of a smaller Spark 800 with a launch time frame of the next two years - which, means that the said model was supposed to be on sale in 2012.
So far though, there hasn’t been any concrete signs to suggest the model’s development. Except for a test mule that was caught back in September 2012. Upon more digging, several sources believe that such a model is indeed, under development and we should expect to hear details about the same in the coming months.
Chevrolet Spark 800 Platform
The current Spark has been in the Indian market since 2007 and got a minor facelift in 2009. It is being powered by a 1.0-litre, four-cylinder, S-Tec petrol engine that is rated 63PS of max power. General Motors we hear, is looking to replace the engine in the new Spark with an 800cc unit, keeping the rest of the aspects of the car unchanged. Which seems like an easier task, than having to go back to the drawing board and coming up with an entirely new model. We don’t know yet for sure, what will happen of the current Spark, once the 800cc model arrives in the market. Anyhow.
Chevrolet Spark 800 Engine Specifications
the engine downsizing will allow General Motors to price the new Spark 800 competitively, down by at least Rs 30,000 than the current version. Furthermore, the new 800cc, 3-cylinder engine is also expected to be more fuel efficient than the current Spark.
