In the end, the Spark does a lot of things well, but others do those things better. Find a Chevrolet Spark for sale

How Much Does a 2020 Chevrolet Spark Cost?

The Spark is available in four variants: the base LS, the midrange 1LT, the sporty ACTIV and the top-of-the-line 2LT.

The base LS ($14,095 manual, $15,195 automatic) is very basic in some respects and nicely equipped in others. It comes standard with manual crank windows and manual-locking doors, which will save you a trip to the car museum to show your kids how difficult life used to be in the old days. The steering wheel adjusts for tilt but not for reach. On the ground, 15-in steel wheels hold the rubber, with disc brakes in the front and drums in the rear. Standard tire-pressure monitoring is included. The LS then surprises you with a bunch of standard technology features, such as a 7-in color touchscreen with Chevrolet Infotainment 3 radio, a rear-vision camera, 10 airbags and a 3-month trial of General Motors' OnStar system with 4G LTE connectivity and a Wi-Fi hot spot. The 4-speaker audio system includes Bluetooth connectivity for smartphones, as well as standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Step up to the 1LT ($15,995 manual, $17,095 automatic), and you get power windows and remote keyless entry with power door locks. The audio system features six speakers and adds SiriusXM capability with a 3-month trial subscription included. The steering wheel gets redundant audio controls, and cruise control is included.

The ACTIV ($17,095 manual, $18,195 automatic) adds rugged-looking bumpers and side body cladding, 15-in alloy wheels and heated leatherette front seats.

The 2LT ($17,890 manual, $18,990 automatic) model adds some additional exterior chrome trim and makes some added interior bling available as well. The steering wheel gets wrapped in leather, and both front seats are heated. Passive entry and push-button start are included, as is rear park assist.

Optional on the 2LT automatic is the Driver Confidence package that adds forward-collision warning, low-speed forward automatic braking and lane-departure warning.

Is the 2020 Chevrolet Spark a Safe Car?

The 2020 Chevrolet Spark has an impressive list of standard and available safety features. The tiny car comes with 10 airbags, traction control, hill-start assist, StabiliTrak stability control with Brake Assist, LATCH connectors for two car seats in the second row, anti-lock braking and a rear-vision camera. Lane-departure warning, forward automatic braking and forward-collision warning are available on the 2LT, and rear park assist is standard with this trim level.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has not released crash-test ratings for the 2020 Spark. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety rated the 2020 Spark Good in the moderate-overlap front crash test but did not test for front-crash protection and mitigation with the optional driver assists.

2020 Chevrolet Spark vs the competition

2020 Honda Fit -- The Fit somehow manages to open up 16.6 cu ft. of luggage space and 52.7 cu ft. of room for cargo with the second row folded flat, and it gets up to 33 mpg city/40 mpg hwy.

2020 Nissan Versa Note -- The Versa Note's 1.6-liter engine outdoes the Spark's 1.4-liter by over 10% while still achieving 31 mpg city/39 mpg hwy.

2020 Toyota Yaris -- The smallest Toyota is available as 5-door model and comes with Toyota's Entune infotainment system, plus a suite of standard driver assists.

Used Chevrolet Cruze -- The Cruze is a bigger, better, more polished compact car, and a certified pre-owned version with just a few miles is about the same price as a new Chevy Spark 1LT.
