Chevrolet Sportifies 2017 Spark Activ at Los Angeles Auto Show

Chevrolet Sportifies 2017 Spark Activ at Los Angeles Auto Show

By Philly Murtha, November 14, 2016
Chevrolet introduced at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show this week the 2017 Spark Activ, a sporty, trail-inspired version of its Spark small car. The special-featured Spark Activ, which looks like a very small utility, will reach U.S. dealer showrooms in the first quarter of 2017, according to Chevy officials. The manual variant has a suggested retail price of $16,945 and with a continuously variable transmission (CVT), the Spark Activ’s retail price rises to $18,045.

What’s neat about the new 2017 Spark Activ, which is built in South Korea and is still powered by a 1.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that makes 98 horsepower, is its trail look with front and rear fascias that resemble off-road skidplates. The new variant rides on new-design 15-in. alloy wheels and the Spark Activ features a sportier suspension that lifts the car by 0.4 inches. Other features that give the car off-road manners include round fog lights and special housings, contrast wheelhouse and rocker moldings, special hatchback cladding, and a unique front grille pattern with the Spark Activ nameplate. Roof rails give it storage room.

Chevrolet also gives the sportier front-wheel-drive (FWD) small car more upscale interior appointments such as standard heated, black leatherette front seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio and smartphone controls. There’s extra in-car infotainment and safety technology, including a Chevrolet MyLink multimedia system with 7-in. touch screen and a rear-vision camera system for convenience and safety. The Spark Activ also comes with 3 months of free satellite radio, OnStar, and Wi-Fi hotspot connectivity. Air conditioning, cruise control, and remote keyless entry are all standard equipment.
