Compare Chevrolet Spark and Hyundai i10

Key difference: The Chevrolet Spark and Hyundai i10 are both city cars that are priced competitively in various car markets of the world. Distinctions between these two cars are on the lines of their make, performance, capacity, fuel economy, etc.

The Chevrolet Spark can be understood as the gradient of Daewoo Matiz, which was produced by Daewoo Motors until its take over by General Motors, the American car maker. The take over took place in the year 2002, since when General Motors has been producing and selling the Daewoo Matiz under its own brand name 'Chevrolet Spark'. The car has been sold through its three generations, the last of which was launched in the year 2010. Comprising of the typical five door hatchback style, the Spark is sold across the world by different names such as the Matiz Creative in South Korea, Chevrolet Beat in India, Holden Barina Spark in Australia, etc. The car is not exactly loaded with features, but does enough to serve a family of four adequately. Sporting a funky and fluidic design, the spark packs in a powerful engine with an impressive displacement capacity of 995 cc. Largely available as a petrol run vehicle, the Chevrolet Spark has also been presented in its diesel variant in some select countries of the world. With a healthy fuel tank capacity of 38 liters, the Spark is almost the perfect hatchback for a pleasant weekend outing. However, the car surprisingly falls short in the fuel economy department, with a meager mileage capacity of 21 kmpl. Nevertheless, the Chevrolet Spark still manages to score big on style, and is reasonably potent in performance.

The Hyundai i10 is the successor of Hyundai’s hugely popular Atos, which is also known as Santro in different parts of the world. Manufactured at Hyundai’s Chennai plant in India, the i10 was primarily targeted at the Indian car markets, especially because of the comfort and affordability factors often associated with hatchback cars in the country. Hyundai handles its domestic, as well as the international exports of the i10, from the Chennai plant itself. The Hyundai i10 has been in production since the year 2007. Boasting of standard contemporary features such as a power steering and central locking system, the i10 is available in its petrol, diesel and LPG variants. This 5-door hatchback car comprises of a distinctly developed Kappa engine, which proves really resourceful to curb the harmful CO2 pollution emanating from the vehicle. The robust 1.1 liter kappa engine is provided with two engaging options of a 4-speed automatic transmission, or a 5-speed manual transmission system. In addition, the car also contains a host of useful elements such as, a sun roof, remote locking, fog lamps, rear defogger, rear wash pipe, adjustable steering wheel, wheel covers, etc. Hyundai has designed this car with a smart and sleek finish to go with its availability in some vibrant gloss and matte colors. All in all, the Hyundai i10 is quite a fashionable car that has the passenger’s pleasure at its heart.

Comments

Many of the features and specs for Chevrolet Spark in UK,US,etc. (Beat in India) are wrong, including engine capacity, power, torque, car dimensions, tyre size, etc. I should know, I own one. Looks like you have mixed it up with the smaller Chevrolet Spark in India.
