Yet another small Chevrolet is making an impact at this years’ SEMA show in Las Vegas. This time it’s the smallest member of the Chevy family – the diminutive Spark. Set for launch in the US, the Spark is difficult to picture on American roads because of its town-car attributes.

This new generation is slightly bigger than its predecessor, which should help the situation. The car has angular lines and big headlights that are accentuated by the bow tie grille. The designers for this Z-Spec Concept would have their work cut out for them to turn this pumpkin into a worthy carriage. The Z-Spec program was launched by Chevy to give small car customers the opportunity to factory-customize their cars in a fun unique way

"The Chevrolet Spark will cause people to rethink their perceptions of what a small car can be – particularly when it comes to design and performance," said Paul Arnone, lead designer. "The Spark Z-Spec concept incorporates a blend of Chevrolet-designed exterior and interior enhancements."

These parts, like the items for the Cruze Z-Spec Concept, will be available through local dealers and can be built-in to your monthly payments. That makes this car very appealing to those on a budget that want to stand out form the crowd.

Exterior Mods

The exterior features very few mods, yet they are simple and effective. The first thing that strikes you is the very loud Tangerine Metallic Orange paint work that’s sure to get you noticed. To break up the citrus assault, are white mirror caps with hydrographics and 17” lightweight BBS wheels, also in “Icy White”. The grille also gets some working over with new inserts and color coded trim. The best exterior addition is the rear spoiler that gives the little car some much needed street cred.

Interior Mods

There is more of the same inside, with the Tangerine theme carried through on the trim and stitching. Leather Recaro bucket seats replace the boring old items, while a flat-bottomed, race-inspired steering wheel now resides in front of the driver. Adding to quality feel is a custom-milled billet gear knob and matching floor mats complete with the Z-Spec logo.

It’s a pity none of the above will actually make the Spark go any faster as the 0-60 in the little run takes around a day. Food for thought maybe?

It’s really cute, and I can’t take it away from Spark-Z. The interior is just a small proof of what Chevrolet can do their newest and future line-ups of vehicles.

I like this a lot because of its immensely innovative style.

This is a mixture of cutesy and aggressiveness. The large head lamps oddly complement its mini body. The overall design is fantastic!

I’d love to see this one in person even on the road. This one is really so cute and an irressistable car! but how about its engine performance?

I have to agree with them, the white spot that they add really gives the aggressive looks and add beauty on it. I just hope that the next issue on this sonic Z-spec they also elaborate the interior features on it.

It impressed me a lot, but I must say that the wheel is the exception of that impressive features of it. Moreover, it really looks cool and cute on its dimension.

Chevy concept is so damn cute, but I’m not impressed with the wheels of it. I didn’t find it suited on the appearance of this vehicle. Moreover, I’m already impressed on the other features that this one has except on its engine.

Chevy Spark is really a cute concept car and had a unique styling. Can’t wait to see this one on the road, I bet it can caught everyone’s attention.

The platform of this Chevy Spark Z-spec is really a cute concept from chevrolet! It impressed me a lot but I must say that the wheels are the exception of that impressive features of it.

It is the smallest Chevrolet hatchback that I saw. It is an effective way for Chevrolet to promote this car, since they offer a customize way for the car in the much-awaited SEMA Show. The interior of the car is great. I like the blending of color. It makes the car appears so neat.

Funny!haha it seems that they were insisting on making such an awesome, unique, angst, aggresive and etc. on a small car like this, but I’m still impress with this.

The car have an impressive styling and look. However, it would be better if they have a offer higher figure for its speed performance.

  (762) posted on 08.1.2011

Well, it seems that they don’t have any plan to make a production version of this vehicle. The exterior is kind of impressive but I don’t think that it would be a good choice for hatchback.

  (647) posted on 05.5.2011

Well, I don’t have any against with small cars for it deliver a good fuel economy.
And I think this is the best time to used this car since there is a crisis in fuel. BTW, the design and styling of this car is clean and decent.
