2018 Chevrolet Spark

Pros: City-friendly minicar dimensions; maneuverability; connectivity/infotainment features

Cons: Limited cargo room

CG Says: The 2018 Chevrolet Spark is unchanged. Spark is Chevrolet’s smallest subcompact. The petite 4-door hatchback has seating for four. Two versions are offered: conventional LS and LT models and SUV-flavored Activ which adds a 0.4 inch raised ride height, roof rails, and unique trim. An Ecotec 1.4-liter 4-cylinder with 98 horsepower is the sole engine, and is available with either a 5-speed manual transmission or a CVT automatic transmission. The EPA estimates the Spark will achieve up to 39 mpg in highway driving. Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning, Side Blind Spot Alert, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot are available features. The Spark is a solid competitor in its segment.
