A bit too tall but I love it. I like those creases and the fact that it looks tailored for young people: fun and simple.

So far so good. I wonder if Holden has any plans to bring this to Australia?

Aside from the garishly HUGE headlights, this is a winner. 8/10
All you need is love and aTVR.

Again i am in the minority here i guess, i see nothing "great" about this small car. As swizzle said tha headlamps are garish and look like a cartoon version of the Corsa, the wheels in comparison to the BIG front look tiny and the entire body of the car looks tall and boxy, perhaps even more than the previous gen Fiesta. I don't expect quality inside to be class-leading either given this is probably aimed at the budget side of things. Maybe i am too harsh on this, dunno, its not that i find it utterly crap or anything, its ok, just nothing special compared to the vast majority of existing Euroepan and Japanese cars IMHO. 5/10 from me

There's just a little bit too much going on with that design. Too many angles going in too many directions.

... and ugh, that Nissan Pathfinder / Jeep Compass "hidden" doorhandle.

I like the idea, but not the execution. Maybe I'm just used to seeing more "calm looking" small cars.

So, are we gonna get it in the USA?

If I am not mistaken, Chevy Spark is already being sold as a different car in many Asia, Europe, and Latin America markets. That particular car is also sold under Daewoo as the Matiz.

Unless this is intended to be the replacement of the current Spark, the better question to ask is, how would the name work as a global vehicle?
YES, I drive a Yugo!!!

I like it, but those roof rails exaggerate the already tall proportions. Without those, I think the car would look much better. As for the headlights, they're probably a bit too big already but I have more of an issue with the weird black triangle behind the light cluster. What's the point of it? they could have just had the headlight cover the whole trapezoid area, and even though the part where that black triangle is would not have any function, it would look better (and more like the concept). I also think the car would look better with pull-type door handles instead of those c. 1995 ones (I think the hidden rear handles are cool though).

The complaints I have are just details really; Overall, it looks good (and remember too that this is a city car, so it's more appropriate to compare this with the Panda, Agila and Ka than the Corsa and Fiesta).
