The 2023 Chevrolet Spark is a city car manufactured by GM, a subsidiary of General Motors. The 2023 Chevrolet Spark is affordable and easy to use in the city and has user-friendly tech, but its cramped back seat, few safety features, and nervous highway behavior let it down. Spark avoids the shoddy interior quality that is common in such cheap cars. Although most plastics are rigid, they fit together evenly and have attractive textures.
The desirable features are limited mainly to leather trim and heated front seats. The riding position is upright like that of a crossover, with a folding armrest that keeps everything comfortable. Large front doors and raised seat height make it easy to climb into the cockpit. Unfortunately, the narrow front seats have flimsy cushions and lack lateral support. The rear seat is undeniably cramped, the front seats should slide forward for an adult to sit comfortably.
2023 Chevrolet Spark : Interior
The Chevrolet Spark is little in interior frills and hard and cheap-looking plastics throughout the cabin. The base models don’t even have features like power windows and keyless entry. On the plus side, most panels feel solid and well put together, and the dashboard layout is attractive, albeit simple. The Chevrolet Spark has one of the simplest infotainment systems you can find in a modern car. The 7-inch touchscreen impresses with its intuitive menu layout, quick responses, and smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Inside, below the screen are several buttons and buttons, and these physical controls make it easy to adjust sound and climate settings while driving. The standard infotainment system includes a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a four-speaker stereo, Bluetooth, two USB ports, and a Wi-Fi hotspot. Available infotainment features include satellite radio and a six-speaker stereo.
2023 Chevrolet Spark : Engine
The 2022 Chevy Spark is equipped with a tiny 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 98 horsepower and 94 pound-feet of torque. A five-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive are standard. A continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) is available. Despite its modest power, this engine feels lively and exuberant in the city and pulls the Spark off the line with surprising ease, especially when paired with a manual transmission. There is enough morale to keep up with the city traffic.
The engine struggles to propel the Spark to highway speeds, taking about 11 seconds to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h – and more buzz coming from under the hood than actual through-put power. The Chevy Spark gets an EPA-estimated 30 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway when paired with the CVT. The manual transmission sets this value to 29/38 mpg city/highway. That’s definitely good fuel economy, but not great. A few compact cars get better gas mileage, including the Hyundai Elantra, Honda Civic, and Toyota Corolla.
2023 Chevrolet Spark : Safety
Chevy’s small hatchback is available with some driver assistance technology, with the most notable options reserved for the most expensive model. Key safety features include a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, collision warning, lane departure warning, and automatic emergency braking.
