A little bit too loud for a car of this size.
They took away the cute factor of current spark(which i am not a big fan of either).

i dont know why 2010 spark looks funny. but aggresive front though.
and why all the car makers are making the rear end flat like splash.

Car looks futuristic adds spice to the small car segment.

I somehow feel there is more of the Suzuki Splash inherited in this design of the new spark.

Suzuki - GM collaboration shares designs too I guess. This car is more Splash+WagonR+New Aveo (front) than anything else!

+1 to that. Looks kind of angry to me, but could look good in flesh. Love those alloys though.

Do we see a common GM (well atleast GMDAT) language evolving here?

hey guys ,did you know..
this is the Beat and was designed by DC for GM(seems they liked his creativity)!!
its was a big scoop one and half years back!!
im sure so much of it is going to get stripped down and its obvious!

Oh dear. Too many curves. Doesn't go well with a cute small car image at all. I really hope this is not the final design.

It looks, well...different. Should be interesting to see in flesh.

Such loud designs work in the segment this car is intended for. Good job. And although GM will not be around, hopefully Tata can and should buy the rights during the GM bakruptcy. Tata needs a car between Nano and Indica Vista. This would be perfect.

They will defintely tone it down by the time it is launched, and that would be a pity. There is so much "cute" on the road these days, its sickening.

Remember what happened to the A star and kizashi concepts(from the spy shots)? totally emasculated by the time they hit production.
