Chevrolet‘s Spark is already scheduled to hit American soil as a 2013 model year in mid-2012, but now we may have confirmation that Americans will receive GM’s 1.2L, inline-four with 80-hp and 80 lb-ft of torque. In exchange for its lack of power, the Spark will deliver around 46-mpg based on a conversion from the European cycle.
The U.S. will actually be the last market the Spark will be sold in. It’s already currently available in Asian, Europe and South Africa. The American Spark will receive a couple of other changes including a larger grille, a larger lower intake and removal of the side-repeater turn signals on the front-three quarter panels.
