Chevrolet spark 2017


2017 Chevrolet Spark Information

The Chevrolet Spark is the smallest Chevy ever made, a relatively tall box on a tiny footprint and a champion at parking and zipping around the city. All Spark models come with a 1.4-liter four-cylinder gas engine. There are no electric or hybrid versions in the 2017 Chevrolet Spark lineup.

Spark was designed for global sales. It started out with good timing, selling well in North America during its first three years from 2013-2015. But now, in the second year of its second generation, its road in the U.S. gets steeper against affordable gasoline and reasonably priced midsize sedans.

However, Spark offers features not found among competitors, such as the Mitsubishi Mirage. Every Spark has a WiFi hotspot, 10 airbags, a rearview camera and rear parking sensors, as well as safety options that are rarely found on cars like this, such as lane-departure warning, blind-spot alert, and forward-collision alert.

But mostly, it actually seats four adults.

With a name like Spark, it's natural to assume Spark is an electric car, but GM stopped making the Spark EV late summer 2016 and so far we have heard nothing about a new electric-powered Spark coming out. Buyers who want a small electric car should check out the new Chevrolet Bolt EV.

The 2017 Spark is powered by a 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine making 98 horsepower. Buyers can choose between a 5-speed manual gearbox or continuously variable transmission. The CVT gets a tiny bit better fuel mileage, but it's not a particularly great feeling CVT. We prefer the 5-speed manual because it brings more life to the small engine and more fun to the driver.

Fuel economy for a 2017 Chevrolet Spark with the manual 5-speed transmission is an EPA-rated 29/38 mpg City/Highway, or 33 mpg Combined city/highway, while the CVT rates 30/38 City/Highway, or 33 mpg Combined.

Spark ACTIV is the same car with a new appearance package, upgraded interior and expanded feature set. Here the word ACTIV describes the intended buyer, not the drivetrain, which is identical to that of the standard Spark, a small four-cylinder gasoline engine. No hybrid powertrain here. Spark ACTIV rates 29/37/32 mpg with manual, 30/37/33 with CVT.

Thanks to a strong body shell, the Spark gets good crash ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. This second-generation Spark gets the top Good score from the IIHS for moderate-overlap front crash and side impact crash. Full Review

2017 Chevrolet Spark

The cabin of the 2017 Spark is not only of a higher quality, but it also is a more contemporary environment thanks to an all-new instrument panel design – with an advanced LCD display – and a prominent “center stack” for the infotainment and climate system controls. The Spark’s signature color-matched instrument panel décors are updated with this new model and the previously-round air outlets are now trapezoidal, adding to the more contemporary design.

The Spark’s all-new MyLink radio features a capacitive-touch color display, with a simple and intuitive icon-based interface similar to what most customers are used to with their smartphone and other electronic devices. And like a smartphone, the capacitive-touch display allows them to swipe, pinch and perform other similar gestures for quick, easy operation.

New volume control and other physical buttons reduce complexity and enhance the system’s intuitiveness.

New for the second-generation Spark, Chevrolet’s new MyLink infotainment system with a 7-inch-diagonal color touchscreen gives owners a smart and simple way to access Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Each system builds off of the features smartphone users rely on most, with many controlled via voice commands through a button on the steering wheel. That helps drivers spend more time with eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.

Android Auto is built around Google Maps, Google Now and the ability to talk to Google, as well as a growing audio and messaging app ecosystem that includes WhatsApp, Skype, Google Play Music, Spotify, and podcast players. A full list of supported apps is available at Android.com/auto.

Apple CarPlay puts iPhone features on the vehicle’s display in a smart, simple manner, allowing drivers to make calls, send and receive messages and listen to music right from the touchscreen or by voice via Siri. Apple CarPlay-supported apps include Phone, Messages, Maps, Music and compatible third-party apps.

Using either application is simple. A “Projection” icon on the MyLink screen is visible when a phone is not connected and changes to indicate CarPlay or Android Auto when a compatible phone is connected via a USB. Android Auto requires a phone running the Android Lollipop 5.0 operating system or above, while Apple CarPlay requires an iPhone 5 or later.

New for 2017

A year after its introduction the 2017 Chevrolet Spark receives five new colors and a new variant called the Spark Activ. Compared to the standard Spark hatchback, the Spark Activ has lower body cladding, a slightly higher ride height, round fog lights, roof rails, and 15-inch alloy wheels.

Vehicle Summary

The 2017 Chevrolet Spark is a city car that slots below the subcompact Sonic and is available as a standard hatchback or the crossover-like Spark Activ with additional ride height and a more rugged exterior look. Regardless of which variant you choose, the Spark is only available with front-wheel drive.

Overview

Powering all variants of the 2017 Spark is a 1.4-liter I-4 with 98 hp and 94 lb-ft of torque paired to a five-speed manual transmission or a CVT. For the standard Spark, fuel economy is rated at 29/38 mpg city/highway with the manual and 30/38 mpg with the CVT. The Spark Activ is rated at 29/37 mpg with the manual and 30/37 mpg with the CVT.

Cargo space stands at 11.1 cubic feet with the split-folding rear seats up and can be expanded to 27.2 cubic feet. Standard features include a rearview camera, steel wheels, Bluetooth, and Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system with a seven-inch touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration. In the LT trim, additional features include leatherette upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, rear parking sensors, 15-inch alloy wheels, heated front seats and keyless entry/start.

Safety

In addition to the standard array of airbags, the 2017 Spark is available with forward collision warning and lane departure warning on the 2LT trim as part of the Driver Confidence package. In IIHS moderate front overlap and side crash tests, the Spark received Good ratings.

What We Think

In a 2016 First Test, we said that the Spark handles decently and offers good value at just under $18,500 with destination included. Despite being a budget-minded car, the Spark feels well built and doesn’t feel tinny. However, it does get unsettled over large potholes and there is a good bit of engine and road noise when driving on the highway. With just the driver in the car, the 1.4-liter I-4 works decently for getting up to speed but when the Spark is fully loaded, it does struggle to get going. The car’s infotainment system also works well, easy to use and works seamlessly when you use Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

Cool Fact

Compared to the standard Spark, the Spark Activ has 0.6 inches of additional ride height to give it a more crossover-like appearance.
