A couple of prototypes of the next-gen Chevrolet/Opel Spark have been caught on camera by our spy photographers.

A couple of prototypes of the next-gen Chevrolet/Opel Spark have been caught on camera by our spy photographers.

The new Spark will likely be introduced early next year and could spawn an Opel/Vauxhall version taking into account General Motors will retire the Chevrolet brand from Europe at the end of 2015. The new Opel is expected to be launched  at the beginning 2016 and would confirm rumors about an entry-level model slotted below the Adam.

Seen here are two prototypes which indicate there will be two distinct models that will share the same platform. They both have a sloping roofline and an upward sweeping beltline while the front fascia and air intakes are unique to each model.

In Europe the new Spark will allegedly cost less than 10,000 EUR (8,300 GBP) whereas the U.S.-spec model will probably cost just about the same as the current generation which kicks off at 12,170 USD.
