Chevrolet plans to showcase Beat Bubble and other models at Frankfurt
Chevrolet will be showcasing a host of new convenience and safety enhancements to its line-up at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. Among the design highlights is the new Spark Bubble edition, which is sold in India as the popular Beat as Chevrolet has the erstwhile Daewoo Matiz edition being sold as the Spark here.
"We constantly strive to give our customers great value for their money," said Dr. Thomas Sedran, President and Managing Director, Chevrolet Europe. "This year, we are adding the new Chevrolet MyLink connected radios, more safety and comfort features as well as new engines with lower emissions, such as the 1.7L diesel with 99 g of CO2 per 100 km in the Chevrolet Cruze saloon," Sedran added.
In select European markets, customers can order the new Spark Bubble, a special edition of the popular city car. It carries a sporty bumper, side rocker moldings, 15-inch white painted alloy wheels as well as frisky white or pink-colored Bubble decals on the front fenders. The center console and inserts have been styled to match the cheerful color pattern on the exterior. The seats are made of leatherette. Moreover, Chevrolet's most successful European model will provide improved safety, thanks to standard Electronic Stability Control (ESC), and meet Euro5+ emission criteria.
Inside, the instrument cluster and trims have been restyled. A new radio with Bluetooth connectivity is standard on most trim levels. The interior also features a CD player as well as USB and aux-in jacks. For audio streaming and hands-free calling, steering wheel controls can be used.
At the show there will also be a new Chevrolet Aveo, Chevrolet Cruze and Chevrolet Orlando and finally a turbocharged petrol variant (1.4L) of Chevrolet's small SUV, the Trax, which will become available with a front-wheel-drive layout as of this autumn in Europe.
