The 2016 Spark moves to a new platform and now rides on a slightly longer wheelbase. IT’s height has also been reduced by 1.6-inches to reduce aerodynamic drag and improve efficiency. Under the hood the 2016 Spark is powered by a new 1.4L four-cylinder engine with 98 horsepower, which is 16 percent more than the 2015 Spark. The new engine can be mated to either a five-speed manual or a CVT. With the CVT, Chevy estimates that the 2016 Spark will have a 40 mpg highway rating.

Safety is also a priority with the new Spark. The 2015 Spark was named a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. A stronger body structure is at the core of the new Spark’s safety story and is complemented by a wider array of passive and active safety features. Ten standard air bags include driver/front passenger knee air bags, roof rail side air bags and seat-mounted thorax/pelvic air bags. A rollover sensing and protection system is also offered. The 2016 Spark also gets active safety features to help prevent collisions, like Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning and Blind Spot Alert.
