As the time of year begins to edge into the season where the next year’s model details are being leaked, there is no shortage of curiosity about the invigorating and punchy Chevy Spark. A completely restyled front end delivers a new fascia, grille, and headlamps on LS, 1LT, and 2LT models. Projection-style headlamps are added, as well as LED daytime running lamps on 1LT and 2LT. A completely updated face and new available active safety technology add a new vibe of confidence and quirk to the front-running mini-car that is the current triumphant sales leader in its segment.
Customers have been easily swayed by the excellent value offered by the Spark and the excitement of getting into an affordable car that offers reliable connectivity and safety. Newly available Low-Speed Forward Automatic Braking can help drivers reduce the severity of low-speed front-end collisions by applying the brakes, or enhancing the braking job already being performed by the driver. The awesome new styling details are an ideal boost to the vehicle’s appearance, with a rich use of chrome in the grille, helping the popular car further bear a resemblance to the rest it’s siblings in the Chevy car family.
Dual-element taillamps on the rear are on deck to help with the signature brand cue mood, and one of its best traits is the ability to choose between many various bright and mood-lifting color choices. The 2019 Spark is offered in LS, LT, 2LT, and ACTIV trim levels, with the ACTIV sporting a 10mm ride height increase. All available trims feature standard A/C, 10 standard airbags, and a camera system with the rear-vision system. Low-Speed Forward Automatic Braking is a segment-exclusive addition to the Driver Confidence Package, working hand-in-hand with the already-in-place Forward Collision Alert, and Lane Departure Warning. The demographic that this car is truly striving to reach and appeal to is going to go absolutely wild over the standard Chevy infotainment system: it features phone integration compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, limited trial of OnStar Service, and access to full connectivity at no additional cost, all under the guise of the stellar MyChevrolet mobile app.
The prior model’s USB port and Auxiliary jack are now replaced with two illuminated USB data ports, and the cabin is now basked in light courtesy of the True White color hue. New colors added to the available choice are Orange Burst Metallic, Passion Fruit, Caribbean Blue Metallic, and Raspberry. Power is generated with a 1.4 DOHC engine, paired with a manual transmission, or continuously variable transmission. We have loved the privilege of representing the most awarded and fastest-growing brand the last four years overall here at Jim Butler, and we are consistently excited to see upgrades for this budget-friendly model. Come test drive the car that Road Show claimed “boasts one of the most impressive color palettes in the entire product range”, and experience automotive greatness on an entirely savvy and eco-friendly choice!
