Chevy spark, great small vehicle for singles or couples without kids
The Chevy spark is a reliable vehicle. Ideal for someone without kids. It is pretty small so car seats don't fit great in the back seat. The ceiling is also pretty low so if you're tall I would recommend it.
The car gets good gas mileage but the tank is very small so you have to full up often. There is a really nice touch screen console. You can listen to the raid or connect a bluetooth device. You can make calls via bluetooth as well. There is a backup camera with options for a grid or just the camera. If its bad weather (snow, rain, mud, slush) the camera does tend to get covered so you have to wipe it off often. The back up camera is great quality and very helpful. The windows and locks are all manual. You can only unlock the car from either the passenger or drivers door. It's a 4 door vehicle. Not much trunk space. It is a very reliable car, it handles well, accelerates reasonably.
The Chevy spark: flashy and functional.
The Chevy spark gives you so much bang for your buck! While it is only a 4-cylinder, it is got so many fun bells and whistles that I love, and the visual details are so cute and unique. I rely heavily on apple play, and love the acceleration and zippiness the car has because it is so light. There is surprisingly a good amount of room inside, including in the backseat and under the back hatch. All my groceries always fit nicely.
Car appears small but does not feel small once inside. Very smooth ride.
The Chevy sparks strengths can be found in other subcompact cars, however I still love my spark and wouldn't trade it in. It is small, easy to park, but it does not feel small once you get inside. The ride is incredibly smooth, however if there is harsh weather like strong winds, you are definitely able to feel it. Pretty happy with my purchase and how efficient it is.
Put a Spark in your life!
Very good gas economy. Not much horsepower though. Car drives very smooth and nice ride. It includes all tech like Bluetooth and Apple connect for navigation etc. Cloth seats are comfortable with lumbar support. Hatchback and plenty of room to fit our fishing gear in the 4 door vehicle. Headroom could be better in the back seat for taller people.
The Spark, a surprisingly comfortable small vehicle.
The Chevrolet Sonic has very low ground clearance. The mileage is good but it only has an 8 gallon tank. It handles very well. I really like the back up camera. It shows a wide area. It has a surprising 5 cup holders. There is only seating for two in the back seat, but my 6 foot tall son can ride back there comfortably.
Low cost on fuel and very roomy
Even though these cute sparks look so small they actually are very roomy. Lots of back seat room and trunk room. They are very dependable and great on gas. We took this car on family vacation and saved a tons on main fence. Also the Wifi option in the vehicle is so great to keep the kids and adults entertained.
Small and good on gas, drives well
It's small but reliable and good on gas. I love the way it drives and how it can fit into small parking spaces. I guess a drawback is the small size but I don't need it to be too big. The trunk space is surprisingly bigger than people usually think. It doesn't have power locks or windows but that's nitpicking.
2016 spark Chevrolet spark review.
I have not had any problems whatsoever. The spark is a subcompact but tides much bigger. I have gotten 34 mpg since I bought it 2.5 years ago. That encompasses city and highway driving. The air and heat both work great. I have nothing bad to say about the spark. Go out and buy one. You will not be sorry.
It has plenty of visibility as far as windows go.
Just bought my car. It is a lot smaller than I wanted but it is great on gas. The spark has enough room for 4 and seems to be comfortable for even the people in the back seat. It is nice that the back seats lay down and it has plenty of room for groceries. It is easy to drive and handles very nicely.
Consider your options before buying a Spark
The car is great on mileage, it fits in tight places, and perfect for a couple. The challenge is that the back seat is very uncomfortable and small, it is not forgiving if you hit a pothole or curb by accident, and the sun visor is way too small. It's super affordable on gas, parts, and insurance.
