4.7

Best value for money

I own the LS model with the manual windows and it does not have power locks or mirrors. I got it because I needed a reliable car, and this has exceeded my expectation. It is not the most comfortable seat, but again I didn't buy it because I wanted a Benz, and it could be much worse. I have put 9k miles on it with a few very long trips and it has done great!

5.0

Most enjoyable and gas mileage is great!

I really enjoy my new Chevrolet Spark. It is a very good car. I checked my gas mileage and am currently getting 44 miles per gallon. It is a very fun car to drive and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend a Chevrolet to anyone!

4.2

Pleasantly surprised when I rented it on vacation.

I needed a rental car for a few days while on a short Florida vacation. Since it was just me and my son I thought it would be fun to rent the smallest available car I could find for "go cart" type thrills. I unexpectedly found this tiny car to be very impressive and an absolute blast to drive. We did a highway stretch between Jupiter and Disney/Orlando. Zipping along at speeds that I wont specify on a public post, I felt safe and in control at all times and i loved the almost motorcycle-ish connection to the road. No sarcasm...honestly it felt sporty and fun. It accelerates surprisingly well and the interior is well laid out, roomy like hatchbacks tend to be, nice sound system, Apple Car Play etc. I dont know its crash test rating, but if it is rated as safe and you are looking for a practical and fun to drive car this seems pretty good.
