New 2016 Chevy Spark at The Chevy Source for Long Island, NY
The all-new 2016 Chevrolet Spark is a completely redesigned version of itself, strengthening its exceptional reputation as a mini-car with a great deal to offer. From new available safety features that help protect those inside to a more efficient powertrain, the Spark gives customers features and technology that aren't typically offered in its segment. Redesigned, more refined global mini-car offers greater efficiency, safety and connectivity. The 1.4L engine offers 16 percent more horsepower than previous model with new Chevrolet MyLink with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility and safety features such as Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning and Side Blind Spot Alert are now available.
Under the Spark's Hood
The 2016 Spark is powered by an all-new 1.4L engine that is part of GM's new, global family of Ecotec small-displacement engines. It offers an estimated 98 horsepower (73 kW) - a 16-percent increase over the previous model. Engineered to deliver strong performance with excellent efficiency, the new Ecotec engine family represents a clean-sheet design and engineering process, leveraging the diverse experience of GM's global resources. Spark's new 1.4L features an aluminum cylinder block and head, which helps reduce the vehicle's overall mass to enhance performance and efficiency. The cylinder head also incorporates an integrated exhaust manifold, which further reduces weight - an attribute that contributes to increased vehicle efficiency and a more favorable front-to-rear weight balance, for a more responsive driving experience.
Design of Chevy Spark
With the instantly recognizable face of a contemporary global Chevrolet, the 2016 Spark is distinguished by a sleeker proportion and more sophisticated aesthetics. All new Android Auto is built around Google Maps, Google Now and the ability to talk to Google, as well as a growing audio and messaging app ecosystem that includes WhatsApp, Skype, Google Play Music, Spotify, and podcast players. The lower roof height reduces the characteristic upright look of many mini-cars, while a "shrink-wrapped" body - with the wheels pushed to the edges of the fenders - contribute to a more substantial, firmly planted presence. There's also a more sophisticated look and feel to the interior, thanks to upgraded materials and greater attention to detail, including everything from the higher-quality fabrics to higher-density seat foam that enhance comfort and durability.
The 2016 Chevrolet Spark builds on the previous model's reputation for delivering excellent passenger safety in the mini-car segment. In fact, in the United States, the 2015 Spark was named a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety. The new Spark has a sleeker appearance, thanks to a slightly longer wheelbase, and an overall height that's about 1.6 inches (40 mm) lower than the previous model. The lower profile reduces aerodynamic drag to help improve efficiency and interior changes maintain the Spark's traditionally generous headroom.It is also built on an all-new, more robust architecture that serves as the foundation for its more sophisticated driving experience. The stronger body structure enables engineers to tune ride and handling more precisely, for greater feelings of control and refinement, while fostering a quieter ride. At its core, the new Spark is still the fun, agile urban car that made the first-generation model so popular, but it delivers that fun driving experience with greater sophistication.
