Small but practical

If you need a car for occasional errands but want one nimble enough to fit into city life, the 2015 Chevrolet Spark is a great choice. The hatchback has a generous amount of front legroom. The hatchback design, folding rear seat, and available roof racks give you flexible cargo space, without adding to the size. The one engine option–a 1.2L four-cylinder–allows you to go further between fill ups. The 2015 Chevrolet Spark is available on three trims, ranging from a barebones base trim to the 2LT, which comes with synthetic leather upholstery, heated seats, and more.

5 reasons to buy the 2015 Chevrolet Spark

1. City sized 

When you live in the city you know that good things often come in small packages. That’s the case with the 2015 Chevy Spark, which measures just 12 feet from bumper to bumper. Its small size gives the Spark the dexterity to fit into tiny parking spaces and slip through busy city streets.  

2. Small engine 

When it comes to engine size, bigger isn’t always better. The standard 84-hp 1.2L four-cylinder on the 2015 Spark provides plenty of power, while allowing you to go further between fills. The 1.2L engine gets an EPA-estimated combined fuel economy of 34 mpg with the standard manual transmission, and 33 mpg combined fuel economy with the available automatic transmission.

 

3. Functional space 

Like a well-appointed studio apartment, the 2015 Chevrolet Spark can do a lot with minimal space. The driver and front passenger have 42 inches of legroom, enough to make the Spark comfortable. The Spark has 11.4 cu.-ft. of cargo space behind the second row. The standard 40/60 folding bench allows you to optimize cargo space when you need it, while available roof rails on the 2LT give added cargo flexibility. 

4. Smartphone integration 

Tune out honks and city noise by pumping your playlist. Bluetooth® integration comes standard on the 1LT and 2LT trims of the 2015 Chevy Spark. That pairs with a seven-inch touchscreen, standard on all but the base trim.  

5. Upscale touches 

While it shines in the city, the 2015 Chevrolet Spark works as a commuter car too. The 1LT trim adds cruise control, making long highway drives easier. The top-tier 2LT trim has heated front seats and leatherette upholstery, among other features, to keep you cozy on cold morning commutes.
