5 reasons to buy the 2021 Chevrolet Spark

1. City-friendly footprint

2021 Chevrolet Spark Review: Exterior | CarMax

The 2021 Chevy Spark is a city dweller's dream with a compact footprint that fits almost anywhere you want it to go. From tight alleyways to cramped underground garages, you'll love how easy it is to maneuver this small hatchback. Measuring only 143.1 inches in length, the 2021 Spark can squeeze into small parking spots. Its shorter wheelbase also provides a well-balanced ride that can zip through traffic with swift lateral movements, which makes this hatchback very fun to drive.

2. Fuel-sipping engine

2021 Chevrolet Spark Review: Engine | CarMax

If you're shopping for a small hatchback, the 2021 Chevrolet Spark will impress you with its thrifty performance. All 2021 models use a 1.4L four-cylinder engine with front-wheel drive to return an EPA-estimated 30 mpg city and 38 mpg highway with the continuous variable transmission.

 If you choose the sporty ACTIV trim with the 1.4L and five-speed manual transmission, the 2021 Spark delivers an EPA-estimated 29 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway.
 For commuting or running errands, the Chevy Spark's fuel-frugal powertrain is a sensible way to get around town.

3. Bold design

If you prefer a sportier look, the 2021 Spark ACTIV has an athletic stance with a slightly raised suspension, black leatherette upholstery and color-coordinated accent stripes. 1LT and 2LT models also offer an available power-sliding sunroof with sunshade, so you can enjoy a fresh breeze on sunny days.
