City Car Matic Suitable for Women Price 100 Million

2017 Chevrolet Spark Matic, Price 130 million (OLX)

In recent years, it seems that PT General Motors Indonesia (GMI) is focusing on SUV products. Call it the Chevrolet Trax and Chevrolet Captiva. In fact, only Orlando represents the MPV segment. They look reluctant to ‘play’ in the hatchback class. Not anymore. Last February, along with the launch of the Chevrolet Trax faceli¡, GMI also launched a new model of the Chevrolet Spark. The changes that are applied can be considered comprehensive. Starting from the exterior design, interior, to the engine with a larger capacity. From the exterior, we like the new design of the Chevrolet Spark, which is now not as quirky as the previous model. The design is made calm with a style that is easily accepted by many people. Compared with the previous model of the Chevrolet Spark, the sharp line pull actually makes it stiff. The stern design is also considered less attractive to Indonesian consumers. If you pay attention, the fascia at first glance looks like a combination of the Hyundai i20 and the Hyundai Grand i10. Is it because the Chevrolet Spark is also made in Korea? I don’t think so. The projector lamp model, similar to that of the new Trax, is fresher. There are also ‘U’ model daytime running lights (DRL) extending to Spark’s headlights. Immediately move on to the interior, to start trying the driving impression of the Chevrolet Spark. We like the comfortable sitting position. Visibility is also good. The driver’s seat has a height adjuster, which makes it easier for us to get the best driving position.

We ignore the various interior features first, because we are so curious about what the impression of the new engine will be. Turn the conventional key, and the 1,399 cc 4-cylinder Ecotec engine rotates smoothly. This is one of the significant changes to the new Spark, it uses a new, bigger engine because the previous generation Spark used a 1,206 cc unit. Power also increased to 98 hp from 82 hp. The new engine uses aluminum material for the cylinder block and cylinder head which reduces the overall weight of the vehicle. The exhaust manifold is even attached directly to the cylinder head. The goal is clear, to reduce the weight of the machine. Immediately we tried this car, around the limited area that has been provided. The initial impression is that the torque boost of 124 Nm is strong enough to blow this car. Because it combines with the CVT transmission, power delivery also feels smooth. How about handling? Due to the limited test area, at this time we cannot fully conclude the handling characteristics. However, we really like the steering wheel response which feels fast. Regarding the suspension slam, its character is similar to that of the new Mitsubishi Mirage. The banting feels just right, not soft but not stiff either. The steering wheel response is fast with moderate suspension kick, it feels like the Chevrolet Spark will have a combination of pleasant handling and comfort. This new Spark has an overall height dimension of 45 mm lower than the previous model. But, we think the headroom that is served is still good. When sitting in the back seat, the legroom tends to narrow. We think the dashboard design is still similar to the latest Chevrolet style. Boxed design that looks not boring. The quality of the cabin workmanship is also quite good. Unfortunately there are still some plastic materials that seem less luxurious. Most notable is the silver plastic on the steering wheel, which we think tarnishes the steering wheel design which is actually good. Regarding other features, this car is also equipped with a manual headlamp leveling like in the Chevrolet Captiva. The head unit is also similar to the Captiva, which already supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay features. Regarding safety features, there are dual SRS airbags, ABS and EBD brakes.
