The Chevy Spark ACTIV is especially ideal if you live in a city or large town where streets are narrow, and parking spaces are tight. With the Spark ACTIV, you can zip by others in traffic, while still enjoying a car that has great pickup and drivability. At McCluskey Chevrolet, we feature the full-lineup of Chevy cars, trucks, and SUVs, including the adorable little compact Chevy Spark. We are featuring the ACTIV trim because we believe it is the right choice for folks like you who need a car to get around in, that will be economical and sporty without being too cramped. Come down to McCluskey Chevy today to test drive a 2020 Chevy Spark ACTIV and see why this is the most convenient, affordable, and fun to drive compact car on the road today.

Engine and Performance

The spunky and energetic 2020 Chevy Spark ACTIV is powered by a 1.4-liter ECOTEC 4-cylinder engine with multiport fuel injection. It can produce up to 98 horsepower and 94 lb-ft of torque. A 5-speed manual transmission is standard on the ACTIV, providing you with a ridiculously great fuel economy. How good? How about 30 miles per gallon in the city and 38 miles per gallon on the highway? Don’t forget to waie to the other drivers as you pass them sitting in line at the gas station.

You can also wave to them as you zip by since the tight turning radius of the ACTIV will allow you to handle the tightest corner, and get into and out of the tightest spot with no difficulty. If you prefer an automatic transmission, the ACTIV is available with a continuous variable transmission, which allows the car to pick the best gear based on your driving. All Chevy Spark ACTIV cars are front-wheel drive.

Special ACTIV Features

The ACTIV package includes unique 15-inch alloy wheels. These are available only on the 2020 Chevy Spark ACTIV, setting it apart from other trims. There are heated Jet Black leatherette driver and front passenger seats, which will keep you and your passengers nice and toasty on those cold winter mornings. In addition, the steering wheel is also leather-wrapped and has silver accents.

The Spark ACTIV has plenty of space for your cargo, up to 27.2 cubic feet with the rear seat folded down. Need more space? The ACTIV features roof rails to help you carry any extra luggage you may have on top of your Spark. The ACTIV also has a raised suspension for a sportier look. Completing the look of this cute and futuristic car are black rocker moldings, and unique front and rear bumpers. And finally, the grille sports the famous Chevrolet gold bowtie logo, a perfect compliment for your Spark ACTIV.

ACTIVly keeping you safe!

The 2020 Chevy Spark ACTIV comes with plenty of active safety features to keep you and your passengers safe. It starts with halogen headlamps and fog lamps to provide you with the most effective illumination during your night drives. There is an airbag system with ten airbags to protect you and your passengers in the unfortunate event of a collision. The Spark ACTIV has a rear vision camera that will help you when you need to back into or out of a space.

The car also features hill start assist. This system will automatically keep the brakes engaged when you are stopped on an incline, so that when you remove your foot from the brake to step on the gas pedal, you will not have to worry about rollback. Other safety features on the Spark ACTIV include a tire pressure monitoring system, StabiliTrak electronic stability control system with traction control, OnStar and Chevrolet Connected Services, and 4-wheel antilock brakes. Each of these will give you the peace of mind you need while driving your Spark ACTIV.

AVTIVly colorful!

Do you like colorful cars? Do you enjoy standing out in a crowd? Then have fun choosing the color for your 2020 Chevy Spark ACTIV. The folks at Chevrolet have chosen a dizzying display of colors to choose from for this sporty little compact. Seriously, there are ten different color choices for the 2020 Spark ACTIV.

You can choose to paint the town red in a Red Hot Spark ACTIV. On the other hand, if you are too cool for school, you might consider getting your ACTIV in Silver Ice. Feeling a little more traditional? How about Summit White or Mosaic Black, two truly classic color choices? If you are a man or woman of mystery, then you should consider Nightfall Gray, a color that would probably be the choice of some dashing and debonair international spy. One new color choice that I feel passionate about is Passion Fruit. This metallic violet color is like nothing I’ve ever seen before, and really compliments the 2020 Spark ACTIV package. Orange Burst just explodes in all sorts of citrusy goodness.

Sticking with the fruit themes, there is Raspberry, bursting with springtime fun and excitement. Want more of a beachy vibe? The Spark ACTIV is available in Caribbean Blue for you folks who love to party hearty. Finally, there is Toasted Marshmallow that I’d rather not spend too much time talking about because it really makes me hungry for s’mores. Yes, this color is that delicious!

ACTIVly Infotaining!

One of the most fun things about the 2020 Chevy Spark ACTIV is the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System. This wonderful infotainment system features a 7-inch diagonal color touchscreen that is really easy and enjoyable to use. With the simple touch of your finger, you can make use the Bluetooth to audio stream up to two active devices for compatible phones.

Want to make a phone call without using your hands? The Infotainment 3 System allows you to use voice command pass-through for phone calls. Do you have an iPhone or an Android smartphone? The ACTIV’s infotainment system is both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capable. There are 2 USB data ports that can also be used to charge your devices. In addition, the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System features a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, so you and your passengers will be able to surf the Internet, operate your mobile apps, and stream music while riding in the Spark ACTIV.

Speaking of music, you and your passengers are going to love the ACTIV’s 6-speaker audio system. Oh yes, I did mention music as the ACTIV also comes with a free trial subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio. Choose from over 150 channels of programming with music, sports, news, talk radio, and so much more. Seriously, if you cannot find a channel on SiriusXM with music that you like to listen to, there is always Howard Stern.

Buckle up and enjoy your 2020 Chevy Spark ACTIV, a car with style that’s sure to put a big smile on your face.
