City driving is stressful. The potholes, the pedestrians, the cabs and bikers. Some days it can feel like you’re in a real-life video game.
Big cars and big cities don’t mix.
Welcome, the new Chevy Spark!
I was able to wheel around Toronto for the day in this sweet little beauty and I fell in mini-car love.
This ultra connected mini-car is dream come true for a city driver.
Parallel parking didn’t cause me to break out in a stress-induced rash.
With the rear-vision camera system, I didn’t smush a single cyclist while backing out of busy parking lots. And thanks to the Spark’s connectivity through Apple CarPlay or Android Auto with in-vehicle Wifi, I was able to plug in my phone and have hands-free access to my Spotify playlist, Google Maps, and Podcasts.
I am not a short person, so mini-cars usually feel like clown mobiles. But the Spark has a surprising amount of headroom and the seats feel luxe, even in our mid-range LS CVT model.
But the ultimate test is trunk space!
We took our Sparks to IKEA to shop like a college student, stocking up on household items we’d later donate to charity.
Here’s a look at the trunk.
There is tons of room to spare!
I think this car is great for city drivers, college students and anyone who wants a safe, fuel efficient, zippy little pepster in their life.
It’s charmingly adorable yet feels quite grown-up.
I like it!
