Chevrolet's small city car gets some laughs about its headlights being its biggest feature and it's not far from the truth. The Spark's 1.25-liter I-4 punching out 84 horsepower sits underneath the short hood. The cabin has been optimized to seat four people rather than trying to stuff five into 86.3 cubic feet of passenger volume. Its tidy hatchback dimensions empower parallel parkers and help with darting through traffic-clogged, narrow streets. The engine, plus the five-speed manual and four-speed automatic transmissions, has been around for a while ' the combination was just never sold in the U.S. But there are redeeming features. The base Spark LS is equipped with 10 standard airbags, a flip-and-fold rear seat to bump cargo volume up to 31.2 cu. ft., full power windows, Hill Start Assist, and 15-inch aluminum-alloy wheels. The LT comes with even more equipment: a Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system with a seven-inch display screen, optional MyLink navigation app, foglights, heated front seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. And then there's the future Spark EV in the pipeline. Using the same body, the Spark EV is powered by a torque-happy electric motor and a lithium-ion battery pack that'll likely offer a traveling range around 80 miles.
