2017 Chevrolet Spark Pros and Cons at TrueDelta: OVER A YEAR LATER by ve3hzz

Well it's been over a year since I purhcased this RED 2017 Chevy Spark LS 5 spd. I have now over 27000 km on it. No problems. I average on highway about 5.5-6.8 L/100 KM. City I average about 7-8.4 L/100 KM depending on the speed and temperature. I find in Frigid days of late it gets closer to 8 on average but I put my foot into it on the highway so can't fault it. My 08 Ranger gets 17 MPG but it's a truck! This car is peppy and has moderate acceleration. I would not use the CVT POS and am glad I have a stick in this one!! I also must point out I have some muscle cars that can litterally keep up with almost anything on the road and this little puddle jumper still impressed me with it's decent acceleration if you can keep the revs up in the power band. For a 1.4 L it's not a slouch as some reviews said of the LT bloated CVT units!!! And I get better mileage and have ponies to toss around to boot!!!

BEST cheapest small econo box outthere. GM did your homework and it's a good car!!! PERIOD! I could buy any new car I wanted really, but I'm cheap and this one was but isn'T ;)
Now go buy one if your still on the fence..and if your bros tease you it's just cause there jealous they can't have one!!! Haters gonna hate!!!!

Who says General Motors cannot compete in thr micro car segment. Thr reviews and comparison were very favorable for thr little tyke. If we ever get an island house I would put a Spark EV in the garage!
