GM is preparing replacement for Chevrolet Matiz. New small car will look like a cocept named Beat which was very well accepted by audience at 2007 New York Auto Show. This will be truly global car, offered on all continents under different GM badges.
Firts test examples were caught by reporters in China.

Body design looks rather intriguing to me. This will compete with the new Toyota iQ mini-car-these will become large sellers, I think, because of the continuously-high gasoline prices that loom ahead.

OK, a disclaimer - I was never a GM fan...........I grew up around Fords and I ended up gravitating towards Honda/Acura. Sure, the Camaro/Firebird was always cool (and the new Camaro is seriously a beautiful car) but I never had a desire to own a GM product.....................until now. I LOVE the new Camaro, but the new Spark is perhaps even MORE attractive. I say this because the Spark manages to be cool, confident and agressive (but not garishly so) - in a very compact package! The interior is ESPECIALLY impressive - it is the most un-chevy interior I've ever seen (and it doesn't look like a rehashed Daewoo interior either)!! Lots more pics and info at............http://spark.chevrolet.com

In the meantime I am posting a pic of the interior.........FINALLY a small car with automatic transmission, climate control, power everything - a small car with luxury features!!
