Chevrolet Spark 2018

Chevrolet Spark comes under mini car category with an impressive low price tag as compared to others in the league.  Chevrolet Spark which was introduced in 2016 received a face lift in 2018 like its other siblings in the Chevy family. The 2018 Chevrolet Spark therefore falls under considerations whenever shopping for a budget car in minimal price with maximum features and safety standards. While it may not be great in terms of speed and performance which is understandable since it’s a mini car made for better mileage with less amount on the sticker, but it drives you through the day efficiently.


Engine & Power:

Chevrolet Spark drives with 1.4L four-cylinder engine combined with 5-speed CVT transmission. This small engine enables the car to produce 98hp in total. The Indian and Korean version of Chevrolet Spark come with 1.0L however to the rest of world the Spark comes with 1.4L engine as standard. The Chevrolet Spark is a small car which means it’s easy to park and run some errands, easy to get through the city in addition to behaving nicely on the highways too. Now it may not get you the best of power from the wheels but the 30 mpg in city and 39 mpg on the highway accounts for that. The Spark come equipped with technologies from expensive cars such as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, foldable rear seats for making more space and being offering enough to do a longer drive. However when it comes to the cost there are some cons as well that come with such inexpensive car. There is not much legs pace at the rear seat along with low head space above for adults at the back. The slower acceleration is the most annoying and compromising thing you have to deal with while pushing the accelerator.


Driving Experience:

At the push of full throttle it takes about 11 seconds to 60 mph from rest. However the driving isn’t as bad as one may believe it to since it glides swiftly on the road. The mini car don’t offer the best in terms of luxury and comfort so does the Spark with its upright seating position and relatively tighter seating at the back as discussed earlier. However it does come with a relatively good interior looks for the price along with technological gadgets on board to keep you entertained.

Chevrolet Spark comes with bunch of features in the cabin and on the outside such as Bluetooth connectivity with voice controlled calling, an infotainment system with good graphics and navigation. As for the safety and braking the Spark is equipped with ABS brakes, traction and stability control. Whereas on the inside it has SRS airbags for front twinned with side-impact airbags for front and rear both. Thus in terms of safety Chevrolet Spark provides needed satisfaction.

Chevrolet Spark is offered in four different trims at present.

Chevrolet Spark LS:

The LS version is base model with minimum sticker price of $13,220. This gives you a manual climate control, 7-inches infotainment system with rear view camera, music system with 6-speakers. Whereas an extra $1000 gets you a sunroof as well.

Chevrolet Spark 1LT:

The 1LT version is by far the best version to buy which saves you right amount of money with adequate amount of features. Therefore the 1LT version is best choice if you agree upon buying Chevrolet Spark. The 1LT trim goes for $15,120. This gets you keyless entry, a cruise control, steering wheel with internal control buttons and power window/locks with optional sunroof.

Chevrolet Spark ACTIV:

A leather wrapped steering wheel with heated front seats comes in the Activ trim. The ride heights is also raised along with some changes in the exterior as well. It goes for $17,495

Chevrolet Spark 2LT:

The 2LT is most expensive trim for the Spark but for other rivals it’s still the cheapest. It costs $16,220 with bunch of options like parking sensors, push-start, departure warning, forward collision warning etc.

The Verdict:

While the Spark offers such lower price it is an ok car for running errands and parking at tight spaces. However when it comes to value of money let’s just say it is not the best choice. The other competitors with a little price over can get you much nicer cars like Mitsubishi Mirage and Kia Rio. Both of these offer more space with greater engine performance. So the Chevrolet Spark might not be the best buying car.
