2016 Chevrolet Spark Exterior

2016 Chevrolet Spark Overview (See Available Styles)

New/Notable:
  • Redesigned for 2016
  • More powerful engine
  • Standard MyLink multimedia system
The 2016 Chevrolet Spark has been redesigned to be much more city-driving friendly. Aside from new exterior and interior styling, the Spark offers more advanced safety features, improved connectivity to information and entertainment, and a slightly more powerful engine.

Three trim levels are available: the base 1LS, 1LT, and 2LT.

With its squared-off headlights and moderate proportions, the Spark’s styling has a much more subtle appearance than its juvenile predecessor. The 5-door hatchback sits on a new chassis with a slightly longer wheelbase for more legroom. Standard features include automatic daytime running lamps, 15-inch aluminum wheels, and a rear spoiler. Fog lights, power side mirrors, and chrome accents are also available.

The Spark has received a new 98-hp, 1.4-liter 4-cylinder engine, which is 16 percent more powerful than the previous engine. It mated to a standard 5-speed manual transmission, but a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) is also available. Fuel economy for the Spark with the CVT is an EPA-estimated 30/41 mpg city/highway.

Inside, the Spark’s interior is updated with a more modern design, upscale materials, and improved technology. The center console prominently features Chevrolet’s MyLink multimedia system, which includes a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Audio compatibility, Bluetooth for phone and audio connectivity, and a USB port. Other standard features include air conditioning, a 60/40-split folding rear seat, and OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot (with data plan). Heated front seats, cruise control, power windows/locks, roof rails, and additional audio speakers are also available.

The Spark has a standard 10 airbags and a backup camera with rear park assist. Optional features include blindspot warning, forward collision alert, and lane departure warning.
