Chevrolet Phils. unveils 2013 spark

The Covenant Car Company Inc. (TCCCI) - Chevrolet Philippines, the exclusive distributor of Chevrolet vehicles and parts, recently introduced the new 2013 Chevrolet Spark. The smart and fun car that provides the unique combination of style and function is rejuvenated with interior and exterior upgrades.

With the 2013 Spark's enhanced grille and fog lamps, the mini passenger car exudes more attitude than ever. Its 14-inch, 10-spoke alloy wheels project a sleeker and bolder stance that is sure to make heads turn. The rear design of the Spark is improved through the new LED mounted spoiler lamps and clear lens tail lamps. Its interior is enhanced with a new seat trim design and silver accents in various key instruments of the car. The modifications add class to the overall aesthetic design of the Spark.

Equipped with a 1.2 or 1.0L engine, the Spark is capable of delivering a maximum output of 22km/L fuel efficiency rating. The result is based on the fuel run test conducted by Roadwise - a third party agency recognized by the Automobile Association of the Philippines (AAP). Thanks to its Continuous Variable Valve Timing (VVT) technology, it adjusts airflow in and out of the combustion chamber under all engine speeds, which makes for better fuel economy and lower emissions. The Spark also has an electric power steering that uses an electric motor instead of an engine-driven belt resulting in a lighter overall workload and better fuel economy.

Though categorized as a mini-passenger car, the five-door 2013 Chevrolet Spark provides a spacious interior that can accommodate up to five adults. It is designed with passenger comfort in mind while still offering great cargo space. The Spark's second row seats are capable of a 60:40 folding split ratio that accommodates payloads that have unusual shapes and sizes. The 2013 Spark still comes in three variants: 1.2L manual transmission, 1.0L manual transmission and 1.0 automatic transmission.

Even with the upgrades, all three variants retain their 2012 prices - P548,888 for the 1.0 MT and P598,888 for the 1.0 AT and 1.2 MT. The Chevrolet Spark is packaged with a five-year or 100,000-km whichever comes first warranty program and a free three-year roadside assistance service.

It comes in seven eye catching colors: Switchblade Silver, Carbon Flash Metalic, Green Cocktail, White, Honey Yellow, Urban Titanium Grey and Pink.
