New for 2019

Chevrolet updated the Spark with a redesigned front fascia, grille, and headlights. New features include two illuminated USB ports, an updated infotainment system, white interior lighting, and available low-speed automatic emergency braking.

Trim Levels

The Spark is Chevrolet's most affordable passenger car, positioned below the Sonic, Cruze, Malibu, and Impala.

2019 Spark LS: The Spark's base trim includes 15-inch steel wheels, a rear spoiler, two USB ports, Bluetooth, a 4G LTE hotspot, a 7.0-inch touchscreen, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay.

2019 Spark 1LT: Move up to the 1LT and the Spark adds 15-inch alloy wheels, power windows and locks, keyless entry, cruise control, heated and power side view mirrors, LED daytime running lights, and SiriusXM satellite radio.

2019 Spark Activ: Building off the Spark 1LT's features, the Activ goes for a rugged look with unique 15-inch alloy wheels, front and rear fascias with lower black body moldings, revised suspension with a 0.4-inch lift, fog lights, roof rails, heated black leatherette front seats, and Activ badging.

2019 Spark 2LT: The Spark's top 2LT trim comes equipped with leatherette seating, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with silver accents, a proximity key, push-start ignition, rear parking sensors, heated front seats, an upgraded instrument cluster display, and exterior chrome trim.

Performance and Fuel Economy

The front-drive 2019 Spark is powered by a 1.4-liter I-4 that produces 98 hp and 94 lb-ft of torque. When equipped with the standard five-speed manual, the Spark delivers an EPA-rated 29/38 mpg city/highway (29/37 mpg with the Activ trim); fuel economy increases to 30/38 mpg with the optional CVT (30/37 mpg with the Activ trim). In Motor Trend testing, a CVT-equipped 2016 Spark hit 60 mph in 10.7 seconds and stopped from 60 mph in 120 feet.

Safety

In IIHS testing, the Spark received the highest rating of Good in the moderate overlap front and side crash tests. The Spark's Driver Confidence package consists of automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and forward collision warning.

Utility (Cargo Space and Interior Room)

The subcompact Spark holds only 11.1 cubic feet of cargo behind the rear seats and that expands to 27.2 cubic feet with the seats down. Front- and rear-seat legroom is 41.7 and 33.0 inches, respectively.

Technology

The 2019 Spark comes well-equipped with standard tech including an updated infotainment system, a 7.0-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, two USB ports, Siri Eyes Free (if your smartphone is compatible), and a 4G LTE hotspot. A six-speaker audio system and SiriusXM radio is optional.

What We Think

In a First Test review of the 2016 Chevrolet Spark, we felt the hatchback had plenty of grip in the corners and provided a mostly comfortable ride, but the car got unsettled with large potholes. As you'd expect of a car with less than 100 hp, acceleration is weak with four passengers, but the front seats are supportive and comfortable. We enjoyed the easy-to-use infotainment system with a 7.0-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Road and engine noise is apparent on the highway but the six-speaker audio system did a good job of drowning it out. We concluded by saying, "The bottom line is that the 2016 Chevrolet Spark is more than just a bottom-line car. It's one of the more efficient cars on the road, and it handles like Chevrolet didn't forget about performance."
