    Chevy Spark Chop


    Here is my idea of what the Spark should look like. I have waited for the looks of this car to grow on me, but I can never get past the headlights.
    Top image- Chopped Version. Bottom Image-Original.
    Changes:
    -Headlights: removed black plastic triangle at top of lights and moved turn signal
    -Greenhouse: flatenned window line in line with headlight, lowered windowline to aid rear passenger visibility, added window where old rear door handle was
    -Body: added second body-colored door handle, removed turn signal repeater

    Let me know what you think!

    nice, the head lights were always a bit over exaggerated for my liking.

    I'm not convinced that having a second door handle on a subcompact adds to the visual appeal.

    Four door coupe designs with hidden access allow the manufacturer to provide the look of a two door coupe without significantly changing the design and manufacturing.

    The one minor change I'd like to see with the Spark is to make it look like a Corsa.

    Thanks CrunkedRL and mattyman1010. I am glad you like the changes.

    I'm not convinced that having a second door handle on a subcompact adds to the visual appeal.
    ne_one, I agree that the hidden door handle, when executed properly, can look very nice. I think the Seat Leon is the best example of a truly invisible door handle. However, after I lowered the window line, the black plastic piece that the door handle was in became too large to look nice. I always prefer more "real" materials like glass and metal on the exterior of a car instead of plastic.
