Do you want an affordable car that has fun and functionality at the forefront? Then the 2022 Chevy Spark is just the vehicle for you. This small hatchback is a spunky cruiser perfect for young drivers looking for a well-made vehicle that won’t break the bank. Because it is a potential first car, you want to make sure that it is functional and effective in all of the main areas, specifically performance, design, and technology.
Luckily, the Chevy Spark is a perfect mix of all of these elements, providing enough power to get you where you need to go without blasting through all of the fuel in your tank. This amazing fuel efficiency combined with the low starting cost make this hatchback perfect for a first-time driver, and the small stature makes it easy to maneuver anywhere. The 2022 Spark also comes with a host of technology features that will allow you to stay easily connected behind the wheel and only get better as you go up the trim line. If you are looking for a little vehicle with everything you need, whether for yourself or your newly-licensed driver, the 2022 Chevy Spark should be your first consideration.
The 2022 Chevy Spark provides more than meets the eye. While it is every bit the fun-loving cruiser that it appears to be, the vehicle also holds its own in the performance sector for a small car of its size. With a 1.4-liter (the perfect size) EcoTec 4-cylinder engine, the Spark is well-equipped with advanced and dynamic engineering. One of the big draws to a small car such as the Spark is its propensity towards eco-friendliness, and the Spark does not back down from this propensity.
The EcoTec engine comes from a whole lineup of small-displacement engines focusing on efficiency and low emissions. This engine has some seriously mind-blowing fuel efficiency specs. You’d think that a small car such as the Spark wouldn’t be able to pull off very competitive numbers in any performance sector, but the 2022 Spark has an EPA-estimated fuel efficiency of 30 miles per gallon in the city and 38 miles per gallon on the highway. You will be hard-pressed to find a vehicle that is efficient outside of a hybrid or EV. Not only is the Spark efficient, but it’s got a good amount of power behind it for a car of its size!
This eco-friendly engineering is paired with a 5-speed manual transmission, making for an engaged and interactive driving experience. Driving stick shift is fun, and it’s a good skill to have! The manual transmission is just one more feature adding to the fun and retro aesthetic of the 2022 Spark. This is a vehicle with a great deal of personality, and there are very few things that add personality to a car like a manual transmission. Don't worry, though; you can get a CVT if driving a manual is not something you are into.
The Spark is working to ensure that it always performs at its highest possible level through features such as hill start assist and power steering, both of which are standard. While the Spark is a small car, the smallness is only due to the positive components of compactness, efficiency, and style; its smallness does not make it a weak vehicle by any means.
If you’re looking for a vehicle with a fun-loving design at the forefront, the 2022 Chevy Spark is the car for you. This small car is spunky in its architecture and made even more fun with ten exciting color schemes, all of which add their own kind of pop to the vehicle’s exterior. Each different color has the potential to give the vehicle a completely different mood. Summit White keeps it simple, Mosaic Black gives it a luxury vibe, Red Hot feels fierce, Blue Glow is subtle yet refined, and Mosaic Blue brings it home with the retro aesthetic. And that’s just a few of the options!
The compact size of the Spark makes it easily manageable. If you are an urban dweller looking for a commuter vehicle, this is the perfect car for taking care of tight street parking or jammed parking structures. But don’t let its compactness trick you into thinking that it’s not up to bigger tasks! The Spark is just as ideal for a road trip as it is commuting. Sure, it may not be an off-roading champion for icy mountain driving, but if you’re looking to hit the open road with some friends, this four-seat small car will provide the fun you desire and the efficiency you need for an effective road trip. With 27.2 cubic feet of cargo space, you’ll have enough room to load up and go.
While the Spark is nicely compact, it still keeps safety in mind in its design with its high-strength steel safety cage. Sometimes small cars are so focused on being small and efficient that safety is compromised. But Chevy is a leader in safety technology, and the very architecture of the 2022 Spark is designed to keep drivers and passengers safe. If you’re looking for a small car, you want one that is small in the right places. The Spark is intelligently designed to provide generous cargo space and passenger room, all with a safe design while remaining compact, fun, and spunky.
Included technology is now a huge part of how we perceive the quality of a vehicle. What was once a luxury is now standard and to be expected. The 2022 Chevy Spark, while a small car with great efficiency, is equipped with all of the modern technology essentials, both in terms of the entertainment technology and safety technology.
The 2022 Chevy Spark is designed with the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System, which is equipped with a 7-inch diagonal color touchscreen. An infotainment touchscreen used to be a luxury feature, but it is now difficult to find a vehicle without one. With Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and in-vehicle Apps, the Infotainment 3 system will have you well connected. The more you get to know the Infotainment 3 system, the more you will find it to come in handy through the ways in which it allows you to stay connected not only to your vehicle but also to the world outside your vehicle.
While infotainment screens are commonplace in vehicles now, a feature that is not yet quite as common is an available in-vehicle Wi-Fi hotspot. And guess what? The 2022 Spark offers it! So, between the infotainment screen and your own in-vehicle hotspot, you will have no problem staying connected.
Chevrolet has many strong suits. In fact, almost every area of vehicle production is the brand’s strong suit. It is no surprise, then, that one of these strong suits is safety technology. Having developed leading safety packages such as Chevy Safety Assist and Chevy Teen Driver, the brand is always developing its knowledge and capability in the area of driver safety. The 2022 Spark is, of course, the beneficiary of this development.
To begin with, the Spark has safety built into its very architecture. With a steel safety cage, the Spark is designed to take the hit so that you don’t have to. Not only is it built with a safety cage, but the 2022 Spark is also equipped with ten airbags. This is a small vehicle, seating only four passengers, so ten airbags mean that there are more than two airbags per passenger.
Beyond the structure of the vehicle itself are the more dynamic and advanced available safety technologies, such as automatic emergency braking (which can either prevent an accident from occurring altogether or prevent bad from getting worse), lane departure warning, and rear park assist. The Spark is watching with you, almost as if there are two sets of eyes on the road at all times. This does not, of course, excuse the driver from attentiveness, but it will hopefully make up for whatever the driver might naturally miss. If an accident does occur, however, the Spark offers available OnStar automatic crash response. OnStar is a fantastic safety resource and will provide you with the help you need should an accident come to pass. Chevy is always helping drivers to prepare, and the 2022 Spark’s standard and available technology features are here to help in that effort.
