Next-Generation Chevrolet Beat Spied

Snapshot: In an unexpected turn of events, the 2016 next-generation Chevrolet Spark (Beat in India) has been spied without any sort of camouflage.

In an unexpected turn of events, the 2016 next-generation Chevrolet Spark (Beat in India) has been spied without any sort of camouflage. It is expected to be unveiled in the second half of this year. Being firstly introduced in 2010, the Spark aka Beat would undergo full model changeover in Korea and USA. Although, in India, the company has different plans and the Indian model would be lying on a different platform.

The new-generation Spark, spied in the pics, uses the same platform as the new Opel Karl/Vauxhall Viva. The all-new five-door entry-level model Viva/Karl would have its world première at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, next month. As far as the Indian market is concerned, the company is not in a mood to use this platform, instead it is looking forward to an ‘Amber’ platform developed mainly for emerging markets like Brazil and India. However, this Amber platform based small hatchback, which would replace the Beat in India, would not be launched in Indian markets till 2017.

Going by the spy-shot, the 2016 Spark gets totally refurbished at the outside. Coming to the front fascia, it boasts a new bonnet, revamped headlamps, sleek radiator grille, redesigned bumper with bigger air exhausts and fog lamps. Chrome linings can be noticed on the grille, air dams and fog lamp in-housings. As for the side profile, it seems as if there are several crease lines running along with the car's body. However, like the current model, this next-generation model too has rear door handle mounted on to the C-Pillar. Reportedly, it would be powered by a 1.0L, 3-cylinder, turbocharged petrol engine, which would develop a maximum power output of either 90 bhp or 115 bhp, while dishing out a peak torque performance of 166Nm.
