2015 Chevrolet Spark review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

The Chevrolet Spark is a four-door hatchback that boasts city-friendly dimensions and Chevrolet’s available MyLink multimedia system. Slotting below the subcompact Sonic, which is more than a foot longer in hatchback form, the Spark competes with a handful of minicars in the U.S.: the Smart ForTwo, Scion iQ and Fiat 500. An all-electric Spark EV is available in California and Oregon.

Spark EV
The Spark EV is an all-electric version of Chevrolet’s minicar and the brand’s first purely battery-powered car. (Chevrolet’s Volt uses a gasoline engine that sustains charge once its electric range is depleted.) The car’s approximate range is 82 miles, and like other electric cars such as the Nissan Leaf and Ford Focus Electric, the Spark EV won’t move once the battery is drained. It is sold only in Oregon and California, and Chevrolet hasn’t said whether it will be offered in other states.

  • New OnStar communication system adds 4G LTE internet connectivity with a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot
  • New 3.87:1 final drive ratio for quicker acceleration
  • Powered by an electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack
  • Charging time of about seven hours with 240-volt service, 20 hours with a 120-volt outlet
  • Available DC quick charging is designed to replenish 80 percent of the battery in about 20 minutes
  • Digital instrument cluster
  • Range-extending elements include low-rolling-resistance tires, active shutters and a rear spoiler

Nice Little Car

I've only had the car for a week, but gets great gas mileage. If you can believe the mileage on the dash I'm getting 38.8 mpg. It isn't a speed demon but has good pickup for a 4 cyl car. I do notice hesitation when shifting into drive but it I attribute that to lack of power. It does fine getting me where I need to go.

Don't buy this vehicle, it has too many issues

This is an ongoing problem with my 2015 Chevy Spark where transmission won't pass over 35 mph without hesitation when it warms up. It has been repaired 3 times and then it star hesitation again.

5.0

Best car I ever owned

Car is just what I wanted. Small, Good gas millage but still has plenty of power. really love both my car and the people at Weber. Will go back to Don Vernier next time I need a car.
