When you're looking for a snappy little hatch that gives you optimal convenience, the Chevy Spark is the perfect fit for a lively Miami lifestyle. It has a 8.5 out of 10 overall consumer rating from Kelley Blue Book, and it's designed to give you an easygoing, user-friendly driving experience at an incredibly affordable price.
The Chevy Spark is narrower than the Versa Note which makes it much easier to drive around Miami's active streets. You can fit into tight parking spaces and avoid driving around the block ten times to find a spot.
The Spark also has a smaller turning radius than the Note, making it simpler to maneuver on small streets when there's heavy traffic. With its small but spacious layout and nimble handling, the Spark takes the stress out of city driving.
The Spark also excels when it comes to safety. Overall, its ratings are top-notch, and it earned a higher score than the Note when it comes to handling frontal crashes.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety even named the Spark a Top Safety Pick because it performed so well in all tested categories. Ten airbags, Electronic Stability Control, Tire Pressure Monitoring, and a Vehicle Anti-Theft System all work together to keep you protected and secure.
And sometimes it's the little extra features that help to keep you safe. The Spark's daytime running lights, which don’t come standard in the Note, make you visible when you're on the road. In addition, Chevy keeps you covered with roadside assistance for a year longer so you're never left hanging when you're in a pinch. When you need help, it's there.
In every trim level, the Spark gets up to 39 mpg on the highway, making it an outstanding option for efficiency. In the Versa Note, the base model only gets 36 miles per gallon. You have to jump up to a price sticker that's over $15K in order to reach fuel economy comparable to the Spark's.
The same goes for tech features. Opt for the Spark's 1LT trim, and you step into an assortment of impressive features above and beyond those that already come standard.
That includes a Chevrolet MyLink infotainment color touch-screen display, a 6-speaker audio system, SiriusXM satellite radio, and a USB port.
In the Nissan, those kinds of options are available for $2,000 more than you would spend with the Spark. And some features, like SiriusXM radio, remain unavailable until you reach the Note's highest trim levels.
Plus, Chevy brings you cutting-edge options that you can't get with other brands. For instance, you can link BringGo, a smartphone navigation app, to the MyLink display in your vehicle.
BringGo provides a 3D Map View, Turn by Turn Voice Guidance, ECO Routing to enhance efficiency, and Automatic Lane Guidance to get you where you need to go. You can also turn your Spark into a wireless hotspot with the available 4G LTE from Chevrolet. Stay connected wherever you are.
More options, better safety, and less money…it's a no-brainer. Go with a reliable brand that makes its vehicles exciting and reasonable at the same time. Go with a Chevy Spark.
