First Drive Impression of the New 2020 Chevrolet Spark
In the ocean of automotive products, each has its own aim to serve a particular purpose of transportation or fulfilling the needs of a lifestyle category. The Spark series from Chevrolet is one such model that focuses mainly on urban transportation making things easier for the nuclear families who need a mode of transport for their daily city road commute. The 2020 edition of Chevrolet Spark is nothing more than that, but with a more refined way of doing things.
We gained our first drive experience with the 2020 Chevrolet Spark through a test drive at the Palmdale Chevrolet dealership that made us understand that the 2020 Chevrolet Spark can stand as the best example of what we call as modern basic motoring. Making it available in trims LS, 1LT, 2LT and Activ, Chevrolet has decidedly kept the features simple so that it can offer all of them in a comparatively low price tag.
If you think, what made us choose the 2020 Chevrolet Spark to explore, then we must explain the fact that the 2020 Chevrolet Spark appeared at the top of the search list when we were looking for a small and cheap mode of transportation, to ease out our daily commute drudgery. At the ninth hour of fuel crisis, a vehicle like the 2020Spark can boast of its own virtues, while the owners will feel fortunate by looking at its fuel economy rates that count 29 mpg in the city, 38 on the highway, and 33 mpg in a combined trip when driven with the 5-speed manual transmission. The numbers increase to 30/38/33 mpg when driven with the CVT.
First Drive Performance
All the trim options of the 2020 Chevrolet Spark drive with a standard 1.4-liter inline-4 engine that can make only 98 count of horsepower after mating to a 5-speed manual transmission. This combination is set as standard for all the trims. But to allow the spirited drivers to squeeze out a better performance Chevrolet has also kept an option of driving with a CVT.The driving mechanism of the 2020 Chevrolet Spark consists of a short wheelbase in tune with a tight suspension to make the drivers have some fun around the corners while all the Spark models are capable enough to suppress the unruly potholes and bumps. In spite of its small size, the 2020 Chevrolet Spark is brilliant enough to handle a variety of driving situations, but anyone who sits behind the wheels can instantly feel the Spark at its best shape, when the trips are around the town in comparison to the highway.
Our first drive with the 2020 Chevrolet Spark at the Palmdale Chevrolet dealer made us realize one thing, that in the busy urban environment, the 2020 Chevrolet Spark is the best thing to own. It is so because it is a car that will not onlyease out the task of parking but also make its waya breeze by zig-zagging through the congested network of city traffic.
