The ultra-small and savvy subcompact known as the Spark truly has a lot of traits to appreciate: it is the vehicle that Car and Driver deemed “chock full of value,” and possessing nearly perfect road manners. It is absolutely a car for those looking for a bargain, and shamelessly promotes itself as such. There is no shame in fulfilling a very crucial area of demand in the current marketplace: those consumers who are looking for a reliable vehicle, and don’t want to have to break the bank to attain it.
The Spark is now adding four new exterior colors to its selection range: Passion Fruit, Orange Burst Metallic, Caribbean Blue Metallic, and Raspberry. With the designation GUO for color code and the touch-up paint code WA-695D, it’s an ultra-cool way to ring in the coming of fall, when thoughts of cinnamon, apple, and trees with colorful leaves are a sign of annual change that we all look forward to in droves. During the past decade, new car buyers are realizing all of the awesome options at hand for color customization, and many are straying from what was once considered traditional.
All of us on staff here at Jim Butler will be bringing you back the Spark to be available in LS, LT, and 2LT trims, and the Activ model will make its return as well, with plastic outer-body, and a .2-inch higher ride than other variants. As before, it will come with a 7.0-inch touchscreen sporting Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, built-in 4G LTE data connection with a powered Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth, backup camera, and 10 airbags. This is a great selection for the daily driver who does not have any interest in supporting the massively gas-guzzling club’s “mountain-moving” mantra, and wishes to have a safe, efficient, and modern means of getting from A to B.
The Drive Confidence Package for next year’s model includes forward-collision as well as lane-departure warning. There is also an automated emergency braking feature: in the event the car senses that you may be about to encounter a crash, it will apply the brakes for you, or cleverly augment the driver’s braking inputs to avoid dangerous impact. If you move up to the 1LT trim, you are the lucky recipient of 15-inch alloy wheels, power windows and locks, keyless entry, cruise control, heated and power side view mirrors, LED daytime running lights, and the vast sea of versatile entertainment known as SiriusXM satellite radio.
The 2LT trim is where things really heat up: it comes equipped with leatherette seating, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with silver accents, a proximity key, push-start ignition, rear parking sensors, heated front seats, an upgraded instrument cluster display, and exterior chrome trim. You can’t go wrong in any urban area with a car that delivers an EPA-rated 29/38 mpg city/highway, fulfilling a longstanding commitment on behalf of Chevy to always pack an Earth-appreciating punch within the realm of fuel efficiency. We invite you to come down and see how Chevy did not forget about performance when loading up so much into a small package: the Spark is on track to win over many urbanites with a desire to keep things scaled down, and we deem it an absolute and ultra-efficient success!
