Chevrolet introduced two excellent models at the New York Auto Show, the Malibu and the Spark. The 2017 Chevrolet Spark is a city car that this year arrives with improved exterior design. It will actually be based on a revised design language which further means that it will be more aerodynamic, better looking, and better equipped. Not only its exterior will be significantly changed, there will be a lot of changes inside and under the hood. The first generation of the Spark arrived in 1998. With the new generation of the Spark, Chevrolet has big shoes to fill, because the current model recorded sales of 1.1 million units sold since 2009.

2017 Chevrolet Spark Exterior
The most obvious change you will see on the new 2017 Chevrolet Spark is the front fascia. The carmaker updated it in accordance with its current design language. The massive headlights are removed by horizontal and much sleeker units that kind of look like Malibu’s or Impala’s headlights. They have also redesigned the trademark dual-port grille which now looks sportier and surrounded by more chrome. The fog lights haven’t changed their position but they got refreshed surrounds.
The rear end has also been changed considerably. It has a revamped hatch with smaller glass area. Also new are more angular taillights. The side profile of the car has also been changed. The vehicle now has a new character line extending across the front door and handle. This time, the new Spark is 1.6 inches lower which makes him sleeker compared to the vehicle it replaces. New exterior colors will be available, including Splash, Toasted Marshmallow, and Kalamata.
