The 2014 Chevrolet Spark is a Top Safety Pick in its first year of
eligibility, and is the only vehicle in the Insurance Institute for Highway
Safety minicar segment to earn the rating in 2014 model year testing.
Spark achieved highest possible "good" scores in the IIHS's moderate
overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraints tests, and scored an
"acceptable" in IIHS's new small overlap test, designed to replicate what
happens when the front corner of a vehicle strikes another vehicle or an
object like a tree or a utility pole.
"Spark's impressive performance in IIHS's most stringent test yet
demonstrates the intensive efforts of our global safety team to deliver big
safety in a small package," said Gay Kent, General Motors general director
of Vehicle Safety and Crashworthiness. "Spark's safety structure makes
extensive use of high-strength and ultra-high-strength steels and its
robust passenger protection package includes 10 standard air bags."

Consumers might shy away from Chevy's tiny Spark because of its compact
dimensions (and awful pink color, in our case), but looks are deceiving,
says Cars.com reviewer David Thomas. The Spark is roomier than it looks and
its small four-cylinder engine is also peppier than expected. The Spark is
at home in the city, but it's not very comfortable on the highway, where
the ride really suffers, Thomas says.

2014 Chevrolet Spark EV Review and Road Test
When GM said their new EV cranked out more torque than the standard Tesla
Model S or a Ferrari 458 Italia, my interest was piqued. When they said
their new EV was a front wheel drive car, I scratched my head. When they
said it was none other than the Spark, aka the Daewoo Matiz Creative, I
knew I needed to see what GM's first pure-electric vehicle since the
ill-fated EV1 was all about.
The Spark EV starts its life in Changwon, South Korea where gasoline and
electric sparks are built by GM Korea. The heart of the Spark however comes
from America. GM is building the permanent magnet motors in Maryland and
rather than using LG batteries made in Korea, like the Chevy Volt,
American-made batteries courtesy of B456 (formerly A123). (No, I'm not
kidding.) Instead of shipping cars sans drivetrain, GM ships batteries and
drivetrain to Korea, then they ship the completed car back to the USA.
Why does the Spark EV exist? Because of my home state of California of
course. The California Air Resources Board has mandated that Toyota, Honda,
Nissan, Ford, GM and Chrysler make a total of 7,500 zero emissions vehicles
by 2014 and 25,000 by 2017. This just the start of the estimated 270,000
yearly production that will be required in 2025.
As with the gasoline version, the front seats are flat, firmly padded and
offer little lumbar support. The hard plastics on the doors make for an
uncomfortable place to rest your elbow but thankfully there is a padded
armrest in the center for the driver only. This isn't unusual for compact
cars, but electrification makes for strange bedfellows and the Leaf, Focus
EV and Fiat 500e are direct competition that all offer more driver and
Because of the Spark's narrow width the Chevy is a strict four-seater
putting it on par with the 500e but one passenger behind the Fit, Leaf and
Focus. It was surprisingly easy to put four tall adults in the Spark, a
task that is more difficult in the considerably larger Focus because of its
sloping roof-line. Still, passengers will be more comfortable in the Honda
Fit which offers a bit more room for four, seating for five and more
headroom all the way around. Despite the Leaf's rear seat numbers being
average, because of the way the seating position in the Leaf most people
will find the Nissan roomier.
As with most gas to EV conversions, the Spark loses a bit of cargo volume
in the process dropping 2 cubes to 9.6 cubic feet of cargo space. That's
slightly larger than the 500e but a long way from the Leaf's spacious 24
cubic foot booty. Unlike the Fiat 500e however, GM chose not encroach on
passenger footwell space for battery storage.

The Chevrolet Spark is a big step forward when you compare it to the Matiz
which it replaced. The bold nose and angular shape is designed to appeal to
younger buyers, but in reality the Spark looks fussy compared to rivals
such as the Hyundai i10. Power comes from a choice of two petrol engines -
1.0-litre and 1.2-litre - and both can return more than 55mpg. Considering
how small the Spark is, passenger space is good, but the boot is small. And
while the cabin looks smart, the hard, shiny plastics that it's made from
