The design of the new Spark received good reviews where being a 5 seater in nature, it is actually quite spacious (remember, this car has an ancestral trait of a mini-car). measuring at 143.3 inches, the front passengers can be pretty comfortable and ideally if 2 passenger are at the back, then it is ‘just nice’. The car comes with an optional 4.3 inches touch-screen system which pretty much controls on-board computer system as well as the satellite navigation system. It has a 4GB internal memory as well as a full auxiliary and USB connection. The entertainment system also allow you to connect your iPod as well as plays MP3s.

The Spark comes with 6 cubic feet of boot space which can easily be expandable to 20.1cubic feet when you fold the rear seats forward. Under the hood is a 1.0 liter DOHC inline 4 engine paired with a standard 5 speed manual transmission gearbox which at 81 horses (and 15 inch rims), gets you from zero to hundred in about 12 seconds. The standard version of the Spark comes with 13 or 14 inch rims.

The car is built in its South Korea and Taiwan Daewoo plants and this would be the second global car model after the Cruze, which is available now in Malaysia. Being a small car in nature, it is exceptionally easy to drive and whizz around and would surely be nice to have it on our roads. So far, it is being sold in Europe and plans are in place for the United States as well. But with Naza Group being appointed recently as the exclusive distributor of Chevy cars as well as plans to build a plant here, fingers crossed, there might be Sparks flying around soon. After all, Malaysians are very receptive when it comes to cars in the mini segment.
