Sporty looks, cheap to buy, and costs peanuts to run
I have just taken delivery of a brand new Chevy Spark 1.0+ in white, for just under £7000, and £30 a year to tax, and group 2 insurance and 45 to 65mpg. I'm laughing all the way to the bank, and it includes a full 5 year's warranty.
I've just driven this car back from the dealers, and I must say it is very pleasant to drive. The brakes are very responsive the steering is light and controlled, and the gear change is slick with a nice light clutch. All the controls are in easy reach, and the ride is brilliant for such a small car. I like the funky instruments and blue lighting, and the whole car has sporty air about it. It also seems very well built, with no rattles or squeaks!!
For a 1000cc 4 cylinder twin cam engine, it's a little screamer, and so far it seems excellent on fuel. I must also say the grip in the little car is amazing, and it's also very good on the motorway. On my way back home, it was staying at a steady 70mph, and there was loads more oomph for overtaking slowcoaches.
I will keep you updated as things progress!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
