The 2012 Chevy Sonic has replaced the lame Aveo in the Chevy lineup and production recently kicked off at GM’s plant in Detroit. Although the Sonic is currently the smallest car in Chevy’s U.S. lineup, GM is planning an even smaller model next year. It was already expected that the U.S. was slated to get GM’s other small car the Chevy Spark, but now we’ve received the official confirmation.
GM has confirmed that the Spark will join Chevy’s U.S. lineup by the middle of next year as a 2013 model. The Spark has been on sale in markets outside of the U.S. where it’s powered by small 1.0L and 1.2L engines, but it hasn’t been confirmed what will power the U.S. version. It remains to be seen if U.S. buyers will want a new Chevy that is smaller than the Sonic and Cruze.
