Motor Trend has concluded that the highly anticipated 2013 Chevrolet Spark won't be much of a factor in the U.S. auto market because it's too small to be attractive to American buyers.

Our feisty colleagues at GreenCarReports have taken that blanket assertion to task, pointing out that the Spark is around the size of the MINI Cooper, which is surely no slouch in showrooms. And furthermore, if gas prices creep up, SUV-lovers might be willing to downsize their American dreams.

On the other hand, Chevrolet and General Motors have taken a lot of flack in recent months, and it'll be a while before they're back in everyone's good graces. Walk through John Voelcker's assessment and add your own $.02 to the mix.

  1. The problem with the Spark isn't with its size, but the fact that it was largely designed and engineered by Daewoo, like the current Chevrolet Aveo.
    The Aveo and other products sourced from Daewoo (the Suzuki Forenza, Reno and Verona) have all been extremely disappointing and easily the worst cars in their respective classes. The fact that the Chevrolet Spark was also designed by Daewoo does not bode well for the car.
