2015 Chevrolet Spark Preview

Sparking some interest Automotive columnist: , Updated:

Pros: The 2015 Chevrolet Spark is a youthful city car built in South Korea by GM DAT, a division of General Motors. Despite its small size, four adults can sit inside. Expect superb maneuverability around town, in addition to great fuel economy.

Cons: The gasoline engine lacks gusto and therefore affects the car's performance. Pricing is up slightly from the 2014 models, yet not much has been added or changed in the Spark since the previous year. 

2015 Chevrolet Spark Price and Fuel Economy: There are three trim levels to choose from this year, from the base LS (with manual transmission) $13,845 including freight and destination charges to the top-of-the-line 2LT (with a CVT) $20,970 including freight and destination charges. 

Expect to burn an average of 6.8L/100km with a manual Spark, and 7.0L/100km with the CVT.

Improvements and Changes: A major upgrade for the 2015 Chevrolet Spark was the introduction of OnStar coupled with the ability to make your little city driver a hotspot with 4G LTE WiFi connectivity -- and it’s standard across all models, regardless of trim level selected. 

2015 Chevrolet Spark Powertrain: The Chevrolet Spark is equipped with a 1.2L 4-cylinder engine that produces 84 horsepower and 83 lb-ft of torque, either through a 5-speed manual transmission (standard) or a CVT (optional). 

Comparing the 2015 Chevrolet Spark: Nissan MICRA, Honda Fit, Ford Fiesta, Mitsubishi Mirage.
