2014 Chevrolet Spark
2014 Chevrolet Spark

New For 2014

There's no denying that the 2014 Chevrolet Spark is a youthful car, aimed at the vibrant millennial customers GM desperately wants to lure into showrooms. That said, when stacked against some of its supersmall-car competitors -- such as the Scion iQ, the Mitsubishi Mirage, and the Fiat 500 -- the 2014 Chevrolet Spark actually looks like a surprisingly mature choice.

Vehicle Summary

The 2014 Chevrolet Spark may have been inspired by a concept shown at the 2007 New York auto show, but it wasn't necessarily designed with the American market in mind. Instead, the Spark was intended to serve as a replacement for the tiny Daewoo/Chevy Matiz. Although General Motors had indicated that the car would come stateside, it dragged its feet doing so and ultimately launched the car in North America as a 2013 model in early 2012, more than two years after the car launched in Asian and European markets.

Overview

How low can you go? That seemed to be the question that dogged GM before it finally brought the subcompact Spark to our shores in 2012. At the time, the Spark had few rivals in the market and Americans weren't exactly known for warmly embracing small cars. Then again, we'd not really been offered a supersmall hatchback with the sort of character that the Spark offers.

Inspired by a pint-size concept car from several years back, the 2014 Chevrolet Spark's design is edgy, if not a bit cartoonish. Long, large headlamp assemblies run the entire length of the front fenders, helping frame Chevy's trademark split grille. A kicked-up beltline carries into the rear doors, which hide their handles in the C-pillar trim. Opt for one of several surprising paint colors -- notably lime green, periwinkle, or pastel yellow -- and the Spark becomes all the more eye-catching.

The Spark measures twelve feet long, five feet tall, and five feet wide. That's nearly a foot shorter than the Sonic hatchback, but the Spark doesn't feel all that small -- in fact, it's not that far off from the Sonic's predecessor, the Aveo. Interior space is fairly plentiful, and there's room (and seatbelts) for four adults to sit in comfort. Cargo space, some eleven cubic feet, is better than what you'd find behind the rear seats of a Fiat 500, and those seats fold flat for larger items. Depending on the trim ordered, there might be some surprising amenities within the cabin, including heated leatherette seats, satellite radio, Onstar, Bluetooth, and a touchscreen audio system.

Perhaps the most surprising element of the Spark is its on-road persona. Its ride quality is quite compliant, even during long spells on the open highway. Its 84-hp four-cylinder has a gruff exhaust note but provides adequate pep to move the Spark along. The standard five-speed manual is perhaps the best option for wringing the most from the 1.2-liter I-4, but a continuously variable automatic transmission is optional, too. Buyers in California and Oregon also have the option of the Spark EV, which eschews the four-cylinder gasoline engine in favor of a 100-kW electric motor.

You'll like:

  • Exterior and interior style
  • Surprising amenities
  • Mature on-road behavior

You won't like:

  • Seats only four
  • Some interior plastics feel cheap
  • EV offered in only two markets (California and Oregon)

Chevrolet Trax Front Three Quarters
Consumer confusion between the similarity of Opel and Chevrolet models, and under-utilization of European production capacity prompted General Motors to announce the pull-out of the Chevrolet brand from the European market starting in 2015. But Chevrolet's pull-out from the Europe is proving to have repercussions far beyond the Continent. Many of the Chevrolet models sold in Europe were sourced from GM's production facilities in South Korea. Chevrolet's European pull-out is expected to impact GM Korea's production volume by as much as 20 percent, and foreshadowing an uncertain future for the unit, according to Reuters.

General Motors reported its strongest monthly sales figure since September 2008 and its best monthly result this year, with sales up 14.7 percent year-over-year to 275,847 vehicles. In a positive sign, GM also said that retail sales rose 22 percent last month while fleet sales (often to rental-car companies) fell eight percent. And once again, the Chevrolet Silverado was the company's top selling vehicle.
2014 Chevrolet Sonic Deep Magenta Metallic 2
To help brighten up the 2014 Chevrolet Sonic sedan and hatchback, the automaker will launch special paint colors for a limited period of time. The first new color is called Deep Magenta Metallic, and it will be followed later this year by Cool Blue.
