The automaker’s small car effort adds its third piece of the puzzle with the Spark, a car 14-inches shorter than the Sonic. The five-door hatchback, which arrives summer 2012, features a 1.2-liter, four-cylinder engine with either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic. According to Winnipeg Used Car Dealers, Chevrolet plans on marketing the mini car to young city dwellers because of its diminutive size.
Following the trend in putting more content in smaller cars, Chevy includes several standard features including a seven-inch color touch screen radio capable of displaying smart phone-based navigation, media and contacts for hands-free calling, available heated seats and the availability of MyLink on upper trim levels. According to Winston Salem Used Cars, MyLink is GM’s media management system, which can link to Bluetooth capable phones to stream music from Internet radio outlets including Pandora and Stitcher, along with navigation that can be displayed on the system’s screen.
Air condition, power windows and 10 airbags are standard across the range. Fuel economy numbers haven’t been established, but Chevrolet expects Spark to get very good city mileage and be competitive in the mini car segment. Pricing is yet to be announced, but will come below the Sonic, which sells for about $14,000.Visit Car Dealerships In Bremerton for more information, or contact your local Chevrolet dealer.
