While the big ticket item for Chevrolet at the Paris Motor Show will be the Trax SUV, the company will also be showcasing a line-up of enhanced models, with one of these being the updated third-generation Spark hatchback, revised for 2013.

The facelift gives the five-door compact a new front, with a redesigned dual-port grille and front bumper as well as restyled head lamp covers and fog lamps providing the change.

The car also gets redesigned 14- and 15-inch alloy wheels, and at the rear, the high-mounted LED third brake light is now integrated into the spoiler above the window, resulting in improved rear visibility for the driver.

As for the interior, changes include new decor elements as well as a remodeled centre console, replete with enhanced storage space. No changes to the specifications of the two S-TEC II engines available for Europe, the 68 PS 1.0 litre and 84 PS 1.2 litre continuing on as is.
