Based on a developed Korean model that is considered too small for American drivers, the Chevrolet Spark now makes sense for post-recession and young buyers getting their first real job. This Chevrolet entry-level hatchback is fuel-efficient, and its dimensions are friendly to urban times. Further, weighing barely more than a ton, the 2018 Chevrolet Spark is one of the cheapest cars available. And most importantly, the 2018 Chevrolet Spark has the real car driving characteristics and features that are not affordable by other cheap economy cars.
The 2018 Chevrolet Spark is a four-passenger four-door subcompact hatchback sold in four trims: LS, 1LT, Activ and 2LT.
The 2018 Chevrolet Spark is powered by a 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 98 horsepower and 94 pound-feet of torque. Power sent to the front-wheel via standard five-speed manual transmission or an optional CVT. The CVT features a unique design that can regulate engine power through one of two settings, rather than the single output design of most CVT. One setting simulates lower gears when the driver demands quicker acceleration, while the other mimics higher gears for open-road cruising.
In track testing, the 2018 Chevrolet Spark wit CVT accelerated from zero to 60 mph in 11.3 seconds, making it one of the slower cars in its class. EPA fuel economy figures with the manual transmission at estimated 33 mpg in combined driving (29 city/39 highway), the Activ trim at (32/29/38). The CVT rated at 33 mpg combined (30 city/38 highway) and (32/29/38).
