30 March 2017
Ten years ago, Chevrolet introduced a small, no-frills city car known as the Spark. Back in the day, the compact Chevy provided the basic transport requirements for those who needed to get in and around town.
Then change happened when Chevrolet Philippines – The Covenant Car Company Inc. (TCCCI), the exclusive importer and distributor of Chevrolet automobiles and parts in the country, unveiled the next-generation Chevrolet Spark in 2011. It was sleek, had peppy performance, and made people notice. Its strong following was further pushed by the model’s appearance as Skids in the Transformers movie franchise.
Now, the Spark comes in its finest form.
The All-New Chevrolet Spark, officially launched at the Manila International Auto Show 2017, is about to ignite a passion for fun motoring in an otherwise mundane segment. In fact, the All-New Spark is set to #SparkYourDrive.
Longer, wider, and lower, the all-new Chevrolet Spark boasts a sportier stance that makes a bold statement. This is highlighted by Chevrolet’s signature dual-port grille flanked by large sweptback projector-type headlamps with LED daytime running lights. The face alone conveys a truly confident demeanor.
The Spark’s good looks are further enhanced by spiffy 15-inch alloy wheels that give the mini car its confident stance. The added exterior dimensions pay off handsomely in terms of interior room. The larger cabin means more space for you and your passengers to lead an active lifestyle. The hatchback configuration with flexible 60/40 split-folding rear seats allows various cargo and passenger arrangements. It’s the perfect vehicle for the millennial on the move.
The all-new Chevrolet Spark is available in seven different and fun colors: Mint My Mind, Brimstone, Pull Me Over Red, Son of a Gun Gray Metallic, Black Meet Kettle, Summit White, and Switchblade Silver.
The newly-designed lightweight Dual Overhead Camshaft (DOHC) 16-valve 1.4-liter Ecotec four-cylinder motor in all-aluminum frame promises brisk and zippy performance while being frugal at the fuel pump. Putting out 99hp and 128Nm of torque, the little motor is more than adequately equipped to keep up with your fast-paced lifestyle.
Putting that power to the front drive wheels is Chevrolet’s vaunted Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). The smart gearbox promises quick responses while maximizing fuel efficiency. The engine-transmission combo is guided by an Electric Power Steering System that makes quick work of tight city streets while remaining stable and composed out on the open road.
Thanks to Chevrolet’s 7-inch touchscreen MyLink Infotainment System, smartphone pairing and mirroring is a cinch. Now, you can use your phone and stay connected to the world while still keeping your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.
It also got a new smart feature – heated and power-folding side mirrors that give drivers added convenience and help keep them aware of their surroundings at all times. Plus, keyless entry makes locking and unlocking the vehicle a simple “press of a button” affair.
Built using the latest technology and conforming to the strictest standards, the all-new Chevrolet Spark is a car that’s right at home anywhere in the world. More than 1 million customers in some 40 markets around the world, including the US, Canada, and Korea, can attest to this. This is backed up by J.D. Powers’ Quality Assurance Survey, which has bestowed the Chevrolet Spark with the Highest Ranking for a City Car honors.
The all-new Chevrolet Spark promises to protect occupants and pedestrians with its extensive suite of safety gear. Apart from the usual dual SRS airbags and antilock braking system (ABS), the little Chevy gets traction and stability control, as well as anti-theft alarm and immobilizer. The former keeps drivers in control during slippery conditions, while the latter set protects your precious investment while parked.
The all-new Spark is backed by the Chevrolet Complete Care Program to give the motorist on the move a worry-free drive. The all-new Spark comes with the Chevrolet 5-year warranty program or 100,000 kms., whichever comes first; automatic enrollment to the 24/7 Chevrolet Emergency Roadside Support for three years; access to 24/7 Customer Care Hotline; guaranteed one-hour express service for select services; and non-stop service for the always on-the-go motorist.
This program comes with every new Spark that rolls off the Chevy showroom.
The all-new Chevrolet Spark is now available in authorized Chevrolet dealerships nationwide. Pricing for the Spark is as follows:
Avail of the all-new Chevrolet Spark P68,000 all-in low down payment promo until June 30, 2017 only. Per DTI-FTEB Permit Number 3094. Series of 2017.
