2015 Chevrolet Spark What's new for 2015? 
2015 Chevrolet Spark

The Spark microcar gets a tech upgrade for 2015 with the addition of 4G LTE and Wi-Fi connectivity that turns the car into a mobile hotspot to keep the driver and passengers connected. The subscription-based system is standard as part of the OnStar communications service and includes a 3-month/3-gigabyte trial.

A more efficient CVT (continuously variable automatic transmission) replaces the 4-speed in models with an automatic transmission, and all Spark minicars gain automatic headlight control. Navigation is now available through a smartphone-enabled app. The all-electric Spark EV is new for 2014 and has a range of 82 miles.

2013 Chevrolet Spark What's new for 2013? 
2013 Chevrolet Spark

The 2013 Chevy Spark is the latest entry into the A-segment market of micro-compacts. Although it's new to the U.S. market, Chevy has actually been building the Spark in South Korea for the Asian and European markets over the past few years. America's rising gas prices have made this model more relevant. That being said, the Spark's miniscule size, edgy styling and smart packaging are what really make it stand out.

About Chevrolet Spark

The 2015 Spark is Chevrolet's smallest and least-expensive car. Tinier even than the Chevy Sonic subcompact, the 4-passenger Spark hatchback falls into the minicar class, where it competes with rivals like the Fiat 500, Smart Fortwo and Scion iQ. The Chevy Spark has a low starting price around $13,000 and a fuel economy rating of up to 39 mpg, figures that will attract younger drivers and those seeking high fuel efficiency. Drivers in California and Oregon also have the choice of the all-electric Spark EV. With its four doors and pair of rear seats, the 2015 Chevrolet Spark is more practical than its slightly smaller rivals. Chevy's city-friendly microcar can turn on a dime and fits anywhere, but is not ideal for long highway commutes.

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Got great mileage on a long highway trip--over 42mpg driving 68mph for 6 hours. Did get a little cramped--had to stop and stretch frequently. Still loving this car, the smooth manual shifting, the hill assist and all the other minor details are great. Still very fun to drive, wonderful in tight parking (I'm a city dweller). there's something very basic and satisfying about driving this around town and on my commute out to the suburbs. It does become a little tricky when needing quick acceleration for merging onto the highway--this is my only real complaint. At this point my overall average gas consumption is 36.2 mpg."

Pros: "Price, interior, fuel efficiency"

Cons: "Minor blind spot"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"The interior of this car is very comfortable and spacious for how small the car looks from the outside. More importantly, the interior is very durable compared to other cars I've owned. That's important to me because I beat up cars a lot with the things I have to put in them. I feel like I'm driving a durable truck but it's just a 1 or a 1.2 L engine! You put $10 of gas in it and it almost fills up half the tank and that's all you need to put in it for 3 or 4 days, driving around the city! The hatchback causes a pesky blind spot when you're merging with traffic from the left but it's not so bad that you feel less safe the more that you drive it. You get used to it. Aside from that, it handles well, it's reliable and although it looks small from the outside, every day, there's more that I find that will fit into it!"

Pros: "great gas millage, very safe, great features"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I love this car..... Im 5'4 so this is the perfect size for me. It looks small on the outside but its roomy on the inside. I could fit 3 grown men plus me driving in the spark and no one rubbed elbows. I also have two kids and they love the car too. Car seats fit great in the spark. The initial kick off of the car is a little slow due to the 4 cyl but once you get it up it gets moving quick(good for lead foots). DON'T WORRY ABOUT SAFETY!!!I recently got into a car accident in the spark and 2 of 10 airbags deployed after being hit on the front passengers side(not at fault accident). The steering wheel and lower leg air bags went off even though i was hit on the opposite side of the car. Im going to replace my wrecked spark with a new one because i love it so much. Plus filling it for under $30 rocks! Your gas is safe too! The only way to open the gas tank is a lever by the drivers foot! So no sugar in the tank(for teens or angry exs)and no siphoning :)"
