The Spark comes in four trim: LS, 1LT, ACTIV and 2LT. The base
($13,400 manual, $14,500 automatic, plus $995 destination fee) is very basic but does have some surprising tech for the money. This is one of the few new cars left with crank windows and manual door locks. The mirror adjustments are also manual, and you won't be getting cruise control, either. All Sparks must make do with a steering wheel that only tilts and doesn't telescope and a driver's seat that only adjusts four ways. This makes is harder to find the perfect driving position. You will, however, get a 7-in touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, plus a 3-month trial of General Motors'
system with 4G LTE connectivity and a Wi-Fi hot spot. More recommendable is the
($15,300 manual, $16,400 automatic) that adds power windows, power door locks and power mirror adjustment, plus remote keyless entry and cruise control. The audio system features six speakers and adds SiriusXM capability with a 3-month trial subscription included. The steering wheel gets redundant audio controls. The
($16,400 manual, $17,500 automatic) has a slightly raised suspension, roof rails, rugged-looking bumpers and side body cladding, 15-in alloy wheels and heated leatherette front seats. The
($16,800 manual, $17,900 automatic) model adds keyless entry with push-button start, rear parking sensors, LED daytime running lights and chrome exterior trim. Like the other models, it can be had with a CVT automatic transmission. A sunroof is available on 1LT and 2LT models.
