If you're looking for a car that's small and efficient, with the creature comforts typically found on much more expensive cars, the 2019 Chevrolet Spark could be just the car for you. Its small size and good outward visibility make it a breeze to park. Excellent smartphone connectivity technology is another draw since every Spark comes standard with a touchscreen infotainment system that has Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration.
The 2019 Spark's small four-cylinder engine is best suited for around-town use. A CVT automatic-equipped Spark takes over 11 seconds to get to 60 mph from a stop, so highway on-ramps require some planning. Surprisingly, the Spark is agile around town and delivers a well-mannered ride overall.
While it's noisy, the Spark compares favorably with other cars in the class. The seating position is upright, with minimal lateral support. The rear seats are best suited to smaller passengers.
Yes, the Spark is small, but its interior layout is functional. The high roofline gives it decent access and visibility. But other subcompacts offer more rear legroom.
There's minimal cargo room with the rear seat in use. But fold the seats down, and there's enough storage to tackle the typical sorts of errands that suit this subcompact hatchback.
The infotainment system adds to the Spark's modern vibe. The menus are intuitive, and the graphics are sharp. The touchscreen supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. You can also get onboard Wi-Fi through the OnStar system.
