Posted on Oct 25, 06:11PM | IBNS

Automobile major General Motors India launched the all-new Chevrolet Spark on Thursday.

The popular small car is more sporty and stylish than ever before, with several new exterior features and interior amenities.

The Spark is available in Petrol and LPG Options.

Speaking on the occasion, Lowell Paddock, President and Managing Director, GM India, said: "The all-new Spark will build on the success of its predecessors and stand out against the competition in India's rapidly growing small car market."

"The introduction of the all-new Spark reinforces GM's commitment to continually roll out new and upgraded products that exceed the expectations of car buyers nationwide," Paddock added.

New Spark will be available in six vibrant colours; Velvet Red, Caviar Black, Linen Beige, Sandrift Grey, Summit White and Misty Lake.

The all-new Spark is powered by an economical yet powerful S-Tec engine, which was developed exclusively for the nameplate.

The four-cylinder 1.0-litre petrol engine delivers peak power of 63 PS @ 5,400 rpm and peak torque of 90.3 Nm @ 4,200 rpm.

The engine includes many new-age innovations such as Sequential MPFI, a Dual Distributor-Less Ignition System (DDLI), a Motorized Throttle Intake System (MTIS) and an Advanced Optical Sensor.

The all-new Spark LPG variants come with a next-generation sequential injection-type LPG kit.

It offers several advantages, including no engine backfiring while changing to LPG mode or back to petrol for a smoother ride, good fuel economy, low running cost, better power and pick-up, and lower emissions compared to the competition.

The all-new Spark comes with a three-year/100,000-km standard warranty, which is an industry first in its segment.

In addition, customers can opt for a unique add-on service maintenance package, the Chevrolet Promise Cost of Ownership Program, which provides free maintenance for three years or 45,000 km (whichever comes first).
