The 2016 Chevrolet Spark is not only a great little car but it is a really great little car that is kind of like a really big car but it's really not. Let us know when we start making sense of this whole 2016 Chevy Spark controversy. The 2016 Spark has been re-tooled, re-engineered and re-deigned for 2016 and this giant of a little mini car is raring to go. The 2016 Spark is flying off of Chevy showroom floors in the States and in over 40 other countries. It's small but it's mighty in its own way and believe it or not, this little tough guy with a big heart can comfortably carry four adults…four normal sized adults. Really. So, if you are ready to take the pledge that small is good and little is mighty, then stop by Wallace Chevrolet in Stuart at 3575 SE Federal Highway and take a look see at the 2016 Chevy Spark close to your home in Port St. Lucie, Palm City, White City, or Jupiter, FL.
Did someone say, “Performance?” Okay, that's what we thought you said. One of the Spark's improvements this year is its horsepower. Last year's model had a whopping 84 horsepower and this year it has been bumped up to an unbelievable 98-horses, which makes it an incredibly…much more powerful car than its predecessor ever hoped to be. Those 98 horses in that tiny engine compartment represent a 17% jump in this mini car's energy output. We don't want to mention any names, but the 2016 Spark is more powerful than several of its competitors in the same class. That extra 14 horsepower is from the new 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that sports an aluminum head on an aluminum block, which, of course, makes it lighter than a lot of those other minis that have no taste and certainly are overweight. This lighter and 17% more powerful engine can actually zoom your 2016 Spark to 60 miles per hour from a dead stop in an amazing 11.2 seconds! Who's in a hurry, anyway? The 2016 Spark cruises comfortably around town and to the market and mall and when it gets on the highway, it keeps up with the flow of traffic as it was a big guy. All this performance is shifted through a five-speed transmission (manual), which comes standard with this beautiful automobile. Hold on to your chair because this is the zinger: the 2016 Spark gets 31 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway! Now, that's power where it counts.
Exterior & Interior Features
The comforts and convenience of this mini car never seem to end. Once you get in and sit in the most comfortable seats you've ever sat in in all your life, (and that may actually be true for a select few of you), you are going to be pleasantly surprised at how much legroom and headroom you really have. It's actually quite comfortable in the cabin because the engineers lowered the seats as they lowered the center of gravity by lowering the roof over an inch and a half. The 2016 Spark now has plenty of room and its lower height profile keeps the Spark's body from being negatively affected by strong winds. Four people can move around in the interior without having to say, “Excuse me,” every two minutes because of an arm or a leg bumping into someone else. The Spark's dashboard is invitingly attractive and functional at the same time. Accessory buttons and controls are easy to read and easily accessible to the driver and the MyLink system's 7-inch touchscreen can interface with tablets or smartphones. Here's a list of some of the Spark's features:
- MyLink System
- in-car Wi-Fi connectivity
- ten airbags
- forward collision warning
- lane departure alert
- blind spot monitoring
- rollover detection
- USB Connection
- stability control
- rear-vies camera
- rear parking sensors
The IIHS, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named the 2016 Spark its Top Safety Pick in its class for the frontal crash test. The Spark is one of only a few mini cars to have achieved that honor by the IIHS. Another interesting thing about this great big little car is that the body is so strong and durable that it has the ability to carry the weight of four Sparks on its tiny roof without collapsing. We would agree that that is a pretty safe little big car.
