Chevrolet makes minor exterior tweaks to Spark

First revealed during the 2015 New York International Auto Show, the current-generation Chevrolet Spark seems ripe for a bit of a facelift. It looks like the folks over at General Motors agree and have given the B-segment hatch a refresh for 2019.

Distinguishing the revamped Spark from the current model is a bit more chrome at the front. The large bumper air intake gets thicker chrome surround and a more prominent plate holder. Also, its bumper has a reshaped front apron, appearing sharper and more chiseled than before.

There's more chrome near the headlights too, and give the impression of being connected to the grill. Foglight housings have been changed, so too were the lights and there's also reshaped LED daytime running lights to show off a new signature. New wheels are also part of the updates for 2019.

Inside, the cabin is largely carried over, although Chevrolet Indonesia says that the MyLink infotainment system has been given a bit of an update for the small car. In Indonesia, the Spark comes with dual front airbags, hill start assist and stability control as standard.

Also carried over is its engine. It's the same 1.4-liter, four-cylinder mill with variable valve timing. Power outputs are slightly different from Philippine-spec models. According to Chevrolet Indonesia's official website, it makes 98 PS and 124 Nm of torque. Local-spec Sparks meanwhile put out 99 PS and 128 Nm of torque. Transmission options include a five-speed manual or a continuously variable transmission.
