Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.
You can interpret our ratings in the following way:
5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.
4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.
3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.
2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.
1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.
2019 Chevrolet Spark OVERVIEW
The 2019 Chevrolet Spark continues to carve out a place for itself in a niche segment. This microcar is the smallest Chevrolet model and it has a good infotainment system. The Spark is roomier inside than it appears from the outside. It's best utilized as a city car because it's slow no matter how it's driven.
What's New for 2019
For 2019, the Chevrolet Spark receives a restyled front fascia, including a new grille and headlights. The LT models now have LED daytime running lights. Wheel and paint changes also roll out. Inside, the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system is new. Lastly, this model receives available low-speed forward automatic emergency braking.
Choosing Your Chevrolet Spark
Under the hood of the 2019 Chevrolet Spark is a 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that generates a 98 horsepower and 94 pound-feet of torque. Chevrolet pairs this engine with a five-speed manual gearbox or to a continuously variable transmission.
The 2019 Spark isn’t as efficient as you might think it is. A number of larger models return better fuel efficiency than the Spark’s 29 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway (33 mpg combined) with the manual gearbox or 30/37 mpg with the automatic (also 33 mpg combined).
Chevrolet offers the 2019 Spark in LS, 1LT, 2LT and ACTIV trims. Standard features include a rear vision camera, 10 air bags, OnStar, a 7-inch color touch-screen display, Bluetooth, Siri Eyes Free and smartphone compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The available packages are limited to just two: An Interior Protection Package ($175 with all-weather floor mats and an all-weather cargo mat) and a Winter/Summer Floor Mats Package ($250).
We know most people will buy the Spark with the automatic transmission. So, right off you need to make an allowance for the $1,100 upgrade, no matter what the trim. The base LS has a good infotainment system, but if you want such features as power windows and power door locks, you’ll begin your search with the 1LT trim.
February's incentives aren't as strong as we've seen in recent months but that doesn't mean there aren't great offers. Cash rebates remain particularly strong with models... View All Chevrolet Lease Deals
