2011 LA: 2013 Chevorlet Spark makes us wonder how small cars can get

Chevrolet pulled the sheets off their latest effort, the 2013 Spark, earlier today at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show. The Spark is smaller than the Sonic and makes us wonder just how small GM can go.

The 2013 Chevrolet Spark poses as the company’s first ever city car and is powered by a 1.2L DOHC four-banger that’s good for about 85hp and 82 lb-ft of torque. Both can be mated to either an optional 4-speed automatic, or a 5-speed manual.

Pricing has yet to be released, but we could expect it to hit your local dealers sometime in the middle of 2012.
