Chevrolet introduced the Spark in 2013 to underpin its car lineup and attract young buyers looking for super-compact, ultra-inexpensive transportation. This car also served as a platform for Chevy's first electric-vehicle experiment, but the low-volume Spark EV (covered in a separated buyer's guide entry) was only sold from 2014 through 2016. For 2020, the Chevrolet Spark is unchanged following a refresh last year.
The Spark comes in LS, 1LT and 2LT trims. All three are powered by a 1.4L four-cylinder engine, which comes with a manual transmission in LS and 1LT configurations, which can be optioned to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) that's standard in 2LT.
LS comes fitted with 15-inch steel wheels with covers, a rear spoiler, two-speed intermittent front wipers, a four-speaker stereo, two-way manual front seats, Bluetooth, a 7.0-inch infotainment system, tilt steering, and tire pressure monitoring. A Spark LS optioned with the automatic transmission also brings air conditioning, which is standard in both LT trims.
1LT adds aluminum wheels, heated/power-adjustable side mirrors, LED daytime running lights, a six-speaker stereo, cruise control, power door locks, keyless entry, satellite radio, and power windows.
2LT brings chrome exterior trim, forward collision alert, automatic braking, lane departure warning, a sunroof, heated front seats, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, rear park assist, and leatherette seat trim.
Chevrolet's fuel consumption estimates are 7.9/6.2 L/100 km (city/highway) with the automatic transmission, and 8.0/6.2 L/100 km with the stickshift.
