Far too many car manufacturers believe inexpensive cars need to be boring. Chevy doesn't agree. That is why the 2020 Chevy Spark is such an exciting member of the Chevrolet lineup. This affordable compact car is perfect for when you want a reliable vehicle that is excellent on fuel economy and doesn't take up much space in the driveway. The sporty nose and the wide base make it easy to drive, while still having a stylish look.
Style and affordability come together with the 2020 Chevy Spark. The Spark comes with four available trims, the LS, 1LT, ACTIV, and 2LT, with a starting base MSRP of $13,220. All of the trim options come with either a 5-speed manual transmission or an automatic, continuously variable transmission (CVT). With 10 available colors, 10 standard airbags, and 27.2 cu.ft. of cargo space, this car packs a lot of style, safety, and storage in a compact package.
If you're in the market for this exact kind of vehicle, now is the perfect time to head on over to DePaula Chevrolet and check out the wide selection of Chevy Sparks. And don't worry, if there is a color or trim model you're interested in that isn't right on the lot, our team here will get it for you. With customer service our top priority, we want to make sure you end up in the right car for the right price.
To help keep the price down and the fuel economy up, the 2020 Spark uses a smaller 1.4 liter Ecotech 4-cylinder engine that produces 98 horsepower and 94 lb-ft of torque. If you're a fan of a manual drive option, the LS manual is not only an extremely affordable vehicle, but it's a blast to drive. Beyond the LS, the manual transmission is available across all trims, which is a rare find these days. Even if you're new to the world of manual transmissions, or have trouble starting on steep inclines, all versions of the Spark feature a hill start assist, which keeps the brakes engaged for a split second as you transition from the brake pedal to the gas pedal. If you instead spring for the automatic transmission, you'll be amazed at just how quiet the continuous variable transmission is and how smooth of a ride it offers.
The LS trim also gives you an excellent 38 miles per gallon on the highway and 29 miles per gallon in the city with a manual. The automatic transmission bumps the city mpg up to 30, and all trims feature a 9-gallon tank.
One of the biggest questions many potential car buyers have revolves around the safety features of smaller vehicles. After all, with much larger vehicles on the road today, it is important to protect yourself. Thankfully the Spark doesn't cut down on safety and security features, even with the smaller price tag.
The LS trim comes standard with knee, dual front, seat-mounted driver and passenger side-impact, rear side-impact, driver and passenger front-impact, rear side-impact, dual front side-impact, and curtain 1st and 2nd road overhead airbags. In total, all models of the 2020 Chevy Spark have 10 total airbags, which might surprise you with a vehicle of its smaller stature. In the event of an accident, the Spark will protect you with a high-strength steel safety cage, in addition to the 10 airbags throughout the cabin.
A rearview camera, OnStar capability, daytime running lamps, and the StabiliTrak electronic stability control system with traction control are all standard across trims. The upgraded trims, ACTIV and 2LT, include everything you receive on the LS trim in addition to a security system and a remote panic alarm. Rear park assistance, LED daytime running lights, a key fob, and keyless open are standard on the 2LT. Forward collision alert, lane departure warning, and automatic emergency braking are part of an available Driver Confidence Package on the 2LT.
Just because you're in a smaller vehicle doesn't mean you need to ditch the entertainment. After all, it doesn't take much space to fill your vehicle with the kind of entertainment systems you want. Sometimes there's just nothing like driving through the city with your windows rolled down and your music up. Well, you'll be able to do exactly that with the 2020 Spark.
The LS trim model comes standard with a 7" diagonal color touchscreen, 4-speaker audio system, voice-command through compatible devices, a driver information center, two USB data ports, Bluetooth ability, and has 4G LTE WiFi hotspot capabilities, offering you internet access wherever you might travel.
The 1LT trim package does up the speaker system to 6 speakers, which helps give you a more complete surround sound listening experience. It offers two foldable keys, a SiriusXMtrial subscription, and steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, so you don't need to reach for the central console. The upper two trims offer many of the same features, with few available upgrades.
The 2020 Chevy Spark has many features that help make driving it more enjoyable. These are handy upgrades that improve your local storage and improve comfort and quality in the vehicle.
On the LS trim model, you'll find a number of convenience features. Some of the storage features include a rear console with storage, a driver vanity mirror, and driver and passenger door bins, which is a great spot to store extra napkins of tissues for when you need one in a hurry. There is a day-night rearview mirror to help reduce the glare of lights in your mirror at night, seatback storage pockets, plus one 12V DC power outlet and two USB ports. Other aspects you will find in a Spark that may not be in other vehicles of similar size or price include a 60/40 split-folding rear bench seat, four cup holders, the LATCH system, a tilt steering column, an outside temperature display, and a tire pressure monitoring system. Even on the base model, the Spark features so many things to make your driving experience more comfortable and enjoyable.
The other trims offer you the same convenience features as the LS, with the addition of power windows, power locks, heated mirrors, and cruise control. Heated seats come standard on the ACTIV and 2LT trims as well. With the 2LT, you also can upgrade the overall feel and experience of your car with an optional power sunroof and dual reading lamps.
