Exterior, The Drive

Unlike many of its contemporaries out there, the Spark looks great too, to my eyes anyway. It has a youthful vibe that comes with its thoroughly modern design. There is really no bad angle, and I like the hidden rear door handles that gives the car some flair to its looks. The most interesting view of the car is from the side, especially when you can even spot some flared wheel arches front and rear.

The Drive

What is lovely when you drive the Spark spiritedly is that you rarely feel like you have compromised on handling buying the cheapest Chevrolet. Thanks to a low kerb weight of circa 1000kg, the car feels nimble, reasonably fun to drive and never anodyne. However, while there is a chassis with promising potential, the engine will not play its tune in quite the same way, dishing out only 67bhp and 89Nm. It is a pleasant enough engine, one that will be sufficient if you’re not in a hurry, but will start to feel underpowered if you need to execute an overtake or if you’re climbing an incline. It, however, feels honest and thoroughly delivers what it promises on paper.

One thing that works against the engine output though, is its air-conditioning. On hot days, it can feel underwhelming, unjustifiably sapping away engine power at the same time which robs the car of the slightly extra poke which is welcome. It also gave off an unsettling odour, although that could be down to the fact that the car was brand new and not run-in yet.

On the highway, the car settles into a very comfortable cruise at 100km/h, thanks to sensible and well-judged gearing that ensures the engine is spinning at a reasonable rate, despite having only four gears. The suspension feels mature, well-sorted and comfortable, soaking up bumps with conviction and confidently riding over humps with little fuss. It really feels and rides like a bigger car than it really is.

Sold my car withing a few days. Fast process. However, be ready for dealers to slash price saying need to change tyre, need to repaint, etc during viewing.
