Chevrolet Spark will undergo a facelift soon. According to an industry source, the refreshed version of General Motors India’s entry-level model will be launched by September 2012. When contacted, P Balendran, vice president - Corporate Affairs, GM India gave no details but said “We keep upgrading our products regularly so that they avoid brand fatigue.”

The Spark, launched in 2007, will undergo cosmetic changes only which, in other words, would mean redesigned exterior parts like headlamps and both front and rear bumpers. The facelift is expected to push up Spark’s sales, which have seen a decline 2011-12. The Spark is only available in petrol and given the buyer preference for diesel, sales of the Spark have fallen. In 2011-12, the car sold 23,183 units as compared to 34,602 units in the previous year.

The problem is The new Beat is the next gen Spark, GM would not bother to invest money in developing a new car only for our market.
The best they can do is to get a cost efficient product from there Chinese partner SAIC who also happen to own 50% of GM India operation.

Agree with you, they won't design a complete new car for our market. What will be the changes you think are going to be their because its a facelift ?
I don't think much would be changed, I guess the interior colors bit of features and from exterior the tail lamps would change to the Spark electric ones.

Why do you say that? Is it your perception that all chevy's are poor or have you had a bad experience with their product's?

Re: Chevrolet Spark Facelift Coming Up in September

it totally depends on one's experience. if one has a bad experience , he will feel negative for the company.

i test drove the polo diesel. hated its gearbox. for some reason always got stuck in reverse gear. skoda also have similar gearbox but didn't have any problem in skoda. but vw.

so for me polo sucks :P
