Behind the Wheel: 2013 Chevrolet Spark LT

By Jacob Brown | July 26, 2013
Do you remember those tiny hatchbacks in the early '90s, the ones with barely enough power to get out of their own way? We don't blame you if you blocked them out of your conscience. They were miserable little appliances that were mostly purchased by cheapskates. They all but died off over the past decade, but expensive gas has led to a cheap-car renaissance. There's the insufferable Scion iQ, the better-but-not-great Fiat 500, and the Smart Fortwo, which is quite possibly the worst new car on the market. But now Chevrolet has an entrant, and we don't think it's quite like the others. Designed in South Korea, the 2013 Chevrolet Spark has since made its way to the U.S., starting at just under $13,000 brand new. With a warranty! Sure, it may not be like the others--it has four doors and a real back seat designed for real humanoids--but is it any good? Read our Road Test of the 2013 Chevrolet Spark to find out.
