We are presenting to you the opportunity to view the industry's most detailed independent video review on this model - in effect, a virtual test drive - which is what we've included above, compiled by industry experts.
Designed to appeal to younger customers, the Spark has sharp edges and trendy front and rear lights. Although every model is a five-door hatchback, because its rear door handles are neatly integrated into the C-pillar, it has the styling of a three-door. However, the basic LS model isn’t as smart as the more expensive models, because it comes with black door handles, mirrors and rear spoiler. Further up the range, these are body-coloured, while the grille surround is chrome, but you need to go for the most expensive LTZ model to get standard alloy wheels.
There’s a good feeling of space in the front of the Spark – partly thanks to the abundance of headroom – but it’s not so generous in the back, where adults will feel cramped on anything more than a short journey. The boot, too, is tiny, and its 170-litre capacity is less than you’ll find many of its rivals. Fold down the rear seats – 60/40 split on every model – and you have 568 litres to play with, but that’s still less than in many city car rivals.
The Chevrolet Spark has a reasonably firm ride, but it won’t send every bump through to the cabin. There is some body roll through corners, but the car finds good grip and feels relatively nimble – partly thanks to the fact that it’s relatively lightweight. However, there’s no getting away from the fact that other city cars provide a better balance of abilities.
