It seems that General Motors India is in no mood to take any chances. They are trying very hard to grab a large chunk of the Indian market. The recent release of the Cruz upgrade and Captiva facelift has projected GM’s intention quite clearly in the market. The General Motors is also planning to replace the existing Aveo U-VA Hatch and Sedan with the new Sail Hatchback and Sedan, which expected to occur in the next few months. The next roll on the dice is the Chevrolet Spark facelift, which is said to be arriving most probably during the time of Diwali this year.
Although the new Spark will not be incorporating any big ticket changes, the exterior is believed to be inspired by the electric Spark that was showcased last year. The interior is also believed to be similar to that of the electric Spark with the same colour scheme. Company has also tweaked with the front grille to make it broader, giving it more of a Chevrolet family feel just like the Cruz and new Captiva.
The company has also tweaked the petrol engine to make it more fuel efficient and thus giving it a competitive edge over the other competitors in the same class. The current and existing Spark is powered by a 1.0 litre engine that delivers a mileage of 12 Kmpl in city conditions and 16 Kmpl on the highway. However, the mileage is quite lower than both of its competitors Alto and Eon. So, mileage can be considered as the most important part on which General Motor should concentrate.
Beside all this, Chevrolet is expected to reveal its much awaited MPV Chevrolet Enjoy which is expected to arrive in the second quarter of the current fiscal year.
