Chevrolet has unveiled the 2013 Spark, ahead of its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

Virtually identical to the international variant, the North American Chevrolet Spark has a revised grille, restyled headlights and modified bumpers. There are also new taillights and 15-inch alloy wheels.

Inside, the cabin is relatively straightforward but highlights include a motorcycle-inspired instrument cluster, color-coordinated trim and power windows / air conditioning. On the options list, there's heated leatherette seats and the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system.

Power comes from a 1.2-liter four-cylinder engine with 85 hp (63 kW / 86 PS) and 82 lb-ft (111 Nm) of torque. It can be paired to a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic.

Pricing hasn't been released yet, but the Chevrolet Spark will be launched during the middle of 2012.
