An SUV-inspired version of the 2017 Chevrolet Spark called Activ has been launched, boasting trail-inspired features like skid plates, a bolder front fascia and revised suspension that raises the ride height by nearly a half-inch. The new model also features roof rails, rocker moldings and standard fog lamps.

“The new Spark Activ is all about adventurous fun and style,” said Steve Majoros, Chevrolet director of car and crossover marketing. “It has an attitude, while still offering the sophisticated, efficient and connected driving experience customers have come to love.”

Well-equipped, under $20,000

Among the features included in the package are black, heated leatherette seating and leather wrapped steering wheel, 7-inch touchscreen with Chevrolet MyLink connectivity, rear vision camera, 4G LTE hotspot, air conditioning, cruise control, remote keyless entry, steering wheel controls and power windows.

The Spark is powered by a 98-horsepower 1.4-liter engine driving the front wheels through either a 5-speed manual or CVT automatic.  Fuel economy is estimated at 29 mpg city and 37 highway with the manual and 30 city/37 highway with the CVT. The Korean-built minicar has 27.2 cubic feet of load space behind the front seats when the rear bench is lowered.

The 2017 Chevrolet Spark Activ is priced at $16,945 for the manual and $18,045 for the automatic. Prices include delivery.
