2014 Chevrolet Spark Video Transcript
Reviewers say the 2014 Chevrolet Spark offers a roomy, comfortable interior. But how do they like its power and handling? Hi! I am Jim Sharifi with U.S. News Best Cars. In this video we will take a closer look at the Chevrolet Spark's performance.
The Chevy Spark comes with 1.2L 4-cylinder engine that produces 84 horsepower. A 5-speed manual transmission is standard and a continuously variable transmission is available on all trims. The base Spark gets an EPA estimated 31 miles per gallon in the city and 39 on the highway which is great for an affordable sub-compact car.
The Chevrolet Spark has one of the lowest horsepower ratings in the class. However, reviewers say that it has adequate power for most commuters and it's capable of holding its own on the freeway. The 5-speed manual transmission also earns praise as reviewers say it makes good use of the engine's power. Test drivers report that the Chevy Spark's handling is admirable for a sub-compact and the steering is precise. Critics note its small size makes it easy to park and maneuver in tight spaces.
Some say the ride is generally smooth while others note that the Spark could offer a more comfortable ride at highway speeds.
