2018 Chevrolet Spark review: Our expert's take


What it is: As Chevrolet’s smallest model, the Spark is the automaker’s entrant in the minicar segment. It's an urban runabout that's equipped with some high-tech features like a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hot spot and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity. Competitors include the Fiat 500 and Mitsubishi Mirage.

Great on gas! Fun to drive. Very versatile.

This car has plenty room in the front seats. I'm 6'3" and am very comfortable. The electronic display is the perfect size and is a feature that I wouldn't have expected for a vehicle in this price range. I get 33 MPG consistently and that is freeway driving 90 miles per day on the turnpike doing 80 MPH. I wonder what the mileage would be if I was doing 65 MPH? This car has great site lines and great maneuverability in city driving with crazy Florida drivers. Parking is a breeze and with the standard rear camera it is all the much easier. This vehicle has a CVT transmission which gives great acceleration with a steady pressure on the gas. Just as one of the reviewers said previously, the car responds with a gentle touch in the city and I have no trouble keeping up with traffic. At highway speeds, with a little extra pressure on the gas pedal, my Spark just jumps. I have the base hatchback model, and was surprised at how much stuff I could fit in the hatch portion and by configuring the seats so they lie flat, there is even more room. My base model comes equipped with manual door locks and windows and only 2 door speakers. The hatch opens only with the key and there in no cruise control and the seating is a bit tight for adults sitting in the rear. I am thinking of buying an aftermarket alarm because I did notice that the front door locks automatically at a certain speed and the rear hatch is unlocked with an electric solenoid. I would recommend this car to anyone.

Love my spark

I love my car. Matt Foster helped me find a car that suited me greatly and my pocket I could afford. I love my spark I call it Sparky. Only thing I wished the back seats would gold all the way down if I need it. When I put something in the back. Thanks Dellen in Greenfield for bring there for me.

Worst car I have ever owned!

Bought 2018 Chevy Spark 9 months ago. Worst decision I ever made. Absolutely NO power whatsoever! Takes at least 20 seconds or more to get across the street. No get up and go at all. Pain is already peeling off of the bumper. Tires are bald already. But my biggest issue is anytime the temperatures change I have to put air in the tires. Very sensitive to temperature changes. And I have put more than $20 in air since I've owned it. Ridiculous. I have to put air in at least 2 of the tires at least once a week. Never, ever had an issue with any car before. Also, gas mileage 9 months ago was 35 mpg. 9 months later its 23.4. At this rate the car isnt going to last for the life of the loan. The second I can, I am trading this thing in. Its a $13,000+ dollar car and I wouldnt pay $2,000 for it now even tho its a 2018. I have bought 20 year old used cars built better than this thing. I will NEVER recommend this car!
