Chevrolet's Small Car Momentum Drives SEMA ConceptsChevrolet's small cars are racking up big sales in 2012 and the bowtie brand will explore their wilder sides at the SEMA Show this year wîth a stable of stylized Spark, Sonic and Cruze concepts. The cars demonstrate the possibilities for customers who want a more personalized driving experience.
Chevrolet previewed the concept vehicles ahead of the Oct. 30 opening of the SEMA Show, the annual automotive aftermarket extravaganza of styling and performance, along wîth the multihued 'The Color Run' Spark and 'Pink Out' Spark – a car for a cause.
'With Chevy's new small cars attracting young buyers wîth a taste for customization, Spark, Sonic and Cruze are the perfect canvasses to express their personalities,' said Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet marketing. 'The content, colors and performance of each concept is being evaluated for possible production as Chevrolet continues to seek new ways to give customers more choices.'
Chevy small car sales were up 97 percent in September. Sonic recorded 7,525 sales for the month, wîth sales of nearly 65,000 year to date through September. Spark, which went on sale earlier this year in 18 Ú.S. markets, recorded 2,223 sales in September. The Cruze compact sedan is one of the country's best-selling cars, wîth more than 180,000 sales through nine months of 2012. That includes 25,787 sales in September.
'The momentum wîth these small cars continues to build, as more customers discover their fun-to-drive spirits and high-value content, including great infotainment options – such as Sonic and Spark's MyLink features,' said Perry.
The small-car concept vehicles demonstrate a range of performance-based styling expressions, including the first application of Chevrolet's Z-Spec treatment for Spark wîth family traits, such as the mesh grille inserts and graphic accents. The Z-Spec concept demonstrates a cohesive design wîth a family of factory-engineered accessories and the best of the aftermarket under a single thémé.
Z-Spec parts could be purchased individually to suit customer tastes and budgets. They're designed for purchase and installation through Chevrolet dealerships wîth the option of installation at purchase and cost being rolled into the customer's monthly payments. Z-Spec concepts could spawn limited-edition production models from Chevrolet.
