The Spark is the smallest car sold in the United States as a Chevrolet. This inexpensive five-door has seating for four and a small hatchback-accessible storage area. A 1.2l four-cylinder engine produces 85-bhp and can be paired with either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission.

The Spark is offered in LS, 1LT, and 2LT trim levels. The LS model is very basic omitting common features like power mirrors and power windows/doors. The 1LT is more reasonably equipped including these features. The 2LT model adds heated leatherette seats for a more upscale look.
