2017 Chevrolet Spark OVERVIEW
The new 2017 Chevrolet Spark, in its second year in a new body and with an array of safety features, is one of the best tiny cars available in America. It performs an excellent job at parking and zipping around urban frontiers. The Spark is the smallest Chevy you can buy. The car is offered in three trim levels: base LS, mid-range 1LT, and top-of-the-line 2LT.
The car possesses more substantial and adult looks, slightly more power, and some sophisticated features which are never found in other minicars. This distinguishes it from other cars of its category. Looks-wise its snub nose gives more presence while accent lines break up and the interior is provided with conventional instruments and a standard 7-inch touchscreen in the center of the dash.
2017 Chevrolet Spark-EXTERIOR
Outside, the metal sheet is shrink-wrapped over cabin with wheels pushed out towards corners. As compared to the outgoing model, the car has a more defined and prominent hood and nose, featured with elliptical headlights that sweep back around the top corners of the hood, almost to the base of the windshield.
Its vertical grille and the horizontal bar give it more presence and stance than the outgoing model’s wedge-shaped front. It’s still a very small car but it appears less toy-like and more adult and serious now. The slabby sides are broken up by accent lines, and further visual interest is provided by taillight lenses that protrude from the body.
2017 Chevrolet Spark-INTERIOR
Inside 2017 Chevrolet Spark doesn’t appear to offer much space but its tall stance gives enough headroom to accommodate four actual passengers, who will sit upright and close. Cargo space is acceptable for such a small car. The dashboard and doors still use body-color panels on some versions. The center of the dashboard gets a more traditional center stack. The small instrument cluster features a new dot-matrix LCD display between actual gauges and looks traditional. The center of the dash holds a 7-inch touchscreen display for the Chevrolet My-Link radio system.
The front seats look small but are well-bolstered in just the right places. The seats are slightly lower now. A rearview camera and rear parking assist sensors are standard on every model. Various new camera-based optional safety systems are offered as options, including lane-departure warning, side blind-spot alert, and forward-collision alert. These features make the car worth driving.
2017 Chevrolet Spark-ENGINE AND PERFORMANCE
Under the hood, the power train is present, which is a 1.4 liter 4-cylinder engine further paired to either a standard 5-speed manual gearbox or an optional continuously variable transmission.
The CVT will give you better gas mileage, but adjustments to EPA calculations this year have cut its fuel-economy ratings this year against last. The engine produces an output of 98 horsepower.
2017 Chevrolet Spark-PRICE
The starting price is expected to be around $14,000. The economical pricing of the car is the reason why too many customers are attracted towards it already. The car is expected to stand high in front of its rival car models.
