months back the Chevrolet beat did show up as a concept in one of the auto shows and it was mentioned as the next generation spark!!
if so im sure teh spark might lose its cute touch and get into a mean looking car but then i do like it.

The rear of the car does resemble the Civic . The front of the car does look a bit like New Accord

The new Optra looks handsome. Rear is definitely Civic. The side window/glass area and the C-pillar, where it blends with the boot is almost Audi-ish in profile. AC vents on the dash look like they have been lifted from an SUV.

Got one more spy pic . Its the side profile. It gives totally different picture here. IMO it looks more like New Accord from front and Present Corolla from rear. Phew its resembling every car from every direction. Lot of inspirational design!
