The 2013 Chevrolet Spark
2013 Chevrolet Spark
The 2013 Chevrolet Spark is definitely a car designed for younger drivers. The standard version comes with a slew of so-called electronic nannies, meant to make the driving experience that much simpler to unexperienced drivers, alongside a lot of entertainment-related features.
The vice president of Chevrolet global marketing mentioned that the Chevrolet Spark was particularly tuned and equipped by Chevy engineers in order to fit with the requirements of your people, because that’s the target customer base for the Spark, first-time buyers and North American city dwellers.
And when you stop to look at it, you tend to come to the conclusion that they have indeed made a great urban vehicle, that is easy to drive, park and own; let’s go through a couple of the features that come standard.
Hill-start assist will make it easier to move from braking to gas on a hill without the issue of rolling backwards that sometimes happens when doing it in cars with manual transmission.
The “Panic Brake Assist” is there to increase the pressure in the braking system when there’s a need for emergency braking to occur. The carmaker said that the system can and will automatically engage maximum break force under panic stops, but as to how they measure that and how it will apply in real life remains to be seen.
We mentioned something about the Spark’s entertainment features, and these kick into gear once you start up the radio which offers access to Pandora, Stitcher, Bluetooth and navigation, of course and it will also link up to smartphones and allow for you to display pictures, play movies and download contact for hands-free calling.
The 2013 Chevy Spark comes with 15-inch wheels and a 1.2-litre 83-hp engine, it’s a change to an earlier press release that claimed that 20-inch wheels would come standard.
