Chevrolet Spark was created to replace a successful model like the Matiz and so successful in the old continent, these are cars to beat the traffic, or at least to make it more bearable. The main target of the small car is to compete hard city car sector increasingly dominated by the Fiat Panda. The little model is 3.60 meters long and 1.60 meters wide and the Spark has strength with agility. The three-spoke steering wheel in the hands, turns tighter become a formality and parking is very easy, thanks to a power steering designed for city driving and suspension designed to soften the stresses of the more disastrous asphalt.
YOUNG DESIGN: not so hard to notice the Spark between other cars, it soon becomes clear that has a strong personality because of the typicsl Chevrolet grid that features the front along with large clusters. Very young and modern design, in some ways even aggressive, with 15″ alloy wheels, metal bars of the roof and a semi-spoiler at the bottom of the two bumpers.
INTERIOR: regarding interior, great is the instrumentation with the analog speedometer and digital tachometer on pure motorcycle-style even if the ice blue lighting, which extends to the radio and climate controls, is reflected on the windows when driving at night . Missing, as well as on other cars, the engine temperature gauge, and also buttons computer are so poorly positioned to force the hand to pass between the spokes of the steering wheel to activate them. The center console is embellished with material similar to carbon fiber, and convince the lacquered inserts starting from the dashoboard to the front door panels.
FUEL EFFICIENCY: the Spark LT city-car claims a very good fuel-economy performance, thanks to a 1.2-liter petrol engine. Chevrolet reports a fuel consumption of 5.1 liters per 100 km on the combined cycle with pricing at 12,000 euros. Although the engine is rated at 81 HP and pushes a 900 kg car, has a markedly non-sporting performance and the 111 Nm at 4800 rpm confirms it. 164 km/h is the top speed, but you need long time to get them
