2013 Chevrolet Spark
2013 Chevrolet Spark

New For 2013

The Spark is an all-new model for 2013.

Overview

The Chevy Spark is the latest entry in the minicar segment, and although it came late, it’s notable for offering four doors, something no other vehicle in this class has. Although the interior reflects the vehicle’s low base price, bright body-color trim—the Spark comes in several eye-searing hues—distracts a bit from the cheapness. Power windows, but not power door locks or mirrors, are standard. Upper trim levels add a seven-inch color touchscreen and a USB port. The high roofline provides plenty of headroom, even in the back seat. Built in Korea, the Spark was modified for U.S. duty with stiffer front dampers, larger (fifteen-inch) wheels, and electric power steering. The 83-hp, 1.2-liter four moves the 2237-pound car with some gusto—until you add a couple of passengers. The steering is quick and precise—the way we wish the Fiat 500’s felt—without being twitchy. Early yet subtle stability-control intervention keeps the car pointed in the right direction through midcorner bumps. The throws of the five-speed manual gearbox are smooth if a bit too light (a four-speed automatic is optional). Chevrolet promises that fuel economy will be “competitive” with the likes of the Scion iQ and the Fiat 500, meaning it’ll be no better than in a subcompact car. The real story, then, will be the electric version that Chevy will offer next year.

Safety

Knee, head, side, and front air bags; ABS; traction and stability control; a tire-pressure monitoring system; hill-start assist; and OnStar are standard.

You'll like:

  • Four doors
  • Copious rear headroom

You won't like:

2013 Chevrolet Spark 2LT Front Right View 1
I like to imagine the Chevrolet team practicing some Stuart Smalley-style self-affirmation as they launched the itty bitty Spark. High in General Motors' downtown Detroit headquarters, I can see a room full of marketers starting every meeting by chanting in unison: "It's good enough, it's big enough, and doggone it, people are going to like it."
2014 Chevrolet Spark EV Left Side 1
The 2014 Chevrolet Spark EV will start at $27,495 before government incentives when it goes on sale this summer. Those eligible for a $7500 federal tax credit could pay just under $20,000, while state incentives could lower the price to as little as $17,495. In California, the Spark EV is eligible for the HOV lane without additional passengers.

The 2014 Chevrolet Spark will have one significant powertrain change when it arrives in showrooms late this summer: the optional four-speed automatic will be replaced by a continuously variable transmission.

The Chevrolet Spark EV is officially a small car with big numbers: the electric minicar was just rated at 119 MPGe combined, making it the most efficient electric cars available to the public today.
