The 2019 Chevy Spark – An Urbanite’s Dream


The 2019 Chevy Spark is out and shoppers are falling in love with this adorable subcompact car. Though as a hatchback it offers a little extra space, the 2019 Chevy Spark is really and truly fun-sized and was built to fit smoothly into any city parking spot. It comes in a variety of new and vibrant colors and its appealing design and even more appealing price point will put impulse shoppers at risk of heading home with a new car! The Spark was last fully redesigned in 2016 and had remained mostly the same until the 2019 model. This year, Chevy refreshed the front styling of the Spark and added the choice of low-speed automatic braking.

If you’re an urbanite that likes to stay connected with technology while you’re out and about, the Chevy Spark might be the car you want to hit the town in. You’ll stay connected with state-of-the-art technology features which come standard, turn heads of people who wish their cars were as visually pleasing as yours, and stay small enough to be practical on the city streets. This car really is tiny, but that only adds to its curb appeal and practicality for city drivers.


The external design is a huge selling point for the 2019 Chevy Spark, it manages to look like something you’d like to pick up and put in your pocket all while providing all the necessities to keep you moving. This year, Chevy introduced some bold new colors for the Spark which include Caribbean Blue Metallic, Orange Burst Metallic, Raspberry, and Passion Fruit. Passion fruits are especially cool in my opinion, a really unique lavender color that’s rarely seen on the road. You’ll definitely not blend in with the regular shades of blue, gray, or white that are so common!

The inside of the 2019 Spark is sleek and economical. It’s designed for a modern consumer who doesn’t want to overspend on things that just aren’t necessary. Keeping the cabin simple is one of the things that keep the Spark at such a desirable base price point, something that many city-dwellers would happily tradeoff for. That’s not to say that the Spark isn’t comfortable, you’ll be able to fit up to 4 people inside and enjoy some nice materials.

Though the 2019 Chevy Spark was designed to be quite a small subcompact car, as a hatchback there is still room for your necessities in the back. With 11.1 cubic feet of cargo space which expands to 27.2 cubic feet with the seats folded down, you might not be shoving your skis inside, but you’ll be just fine hauling your shopping and running errands.


This city car knows how to perform on the road! With deft handling and easy maneuverability, you’ll be able to navigate traffic or a sharp city street with ease. A tight turning radius will even come in handy when you need to make a U-turn to take a short-cut. Parking is a breeze and you’ll be able to fit into that space in the parking garage that other cars just don’t fit into.

The 2019 Chevrolet Spark has a 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 98 horsepower. This isn’t that much compared with other vehicles, but more than gets the job done for people who tend to do most of their driving in populated areas. For the base trim, a 5-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive come standard. You can upgrade to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) though if you’re planning to dart around the city and stop and start frequently (especially in traffic) the Spark more than meets the requirements.


This car was built to be compact and connected. Chevy knows its target audience are urbanites who value staying connected to technology but want a car that isn’t going to be an inconvenience on the roads. The 2019 Chevy Spark does both and provides an excellent array of standard technology and entertainment features for the price point. This car is very small, but Chevrolet certainly managed to squeeze in a lot of features! You may even be surprised by the number of features which would normally be upgrades on other models of car in the industry.

The highlight of the 2019 Chevy Spark is its touchscreen infotainment system installed within easy access of the driver. It supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay so that you can stay entertained on the road. Not only that, but the 2019 Chevy Spark comes with a built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot! (Some luxury cars on the market don’t even have that option!) With the touchscreen, you can access the infotainment system, Bluetooth, and navigation so that you’ll never be lost ever again. Navigating the Spark’s interface menu is easy and intuitive, and you will probably find it hard to go back to other types of infotainment systems.

Trim Levels
