Which Spark Model Should I Buy?
The 2018 Chevrolet Spark is available as four trim models: the base LS, mid-range 1LT, sporty Active, and classy 2LT. Which of these subcompacts should you buy? The right Spark for you is the one with the both features and the price tag you require.

The Activ’s simulated leather upholstery and front seat heaters mean you can put a little extra luxury into your outdoor adventures.
The top-trim 2LT adds to the Activ’s interior style with an upgraded driver information display. This city-friendly model also includes rear parking sensors and push-button ignition. An extra bonus?
