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 CVT automated transmission. At just 144 inches long, the Spark is about 10 inches shorter than cars like the Mazda2 or the Toyota Yaris. The Spark is about 15 inches smaller than the next largest Chevrolet, the Sonic. 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.

What Changed:

A CVT transmission replaces the optional 4-speed automatic.
