2013 Chevrolet Spark challenges common myths
Mini cars have been populating international streets for decades, and are now building a solid presence in the United States. The segment is characterized by some misconceptions that the newest entries, like Chevrolet’s all-new Spark, can confidently refute.
The 2013 Chevrolet Spark, a four-passenger, five-door hatchback, was designed to challenge what’s possible in the mini-car segment. “The all-new Chevrolet Spark will offer our customers both practicality and fun,” said Robert Crotty, VP of Crotty Chevrolet Buick in Corry, PA. “The great design and latest connectivity features are sure to make the Spark a fast favorite among Corry, Warren, Erie and Jamestown, NY area drivers looking for a small economical and affordable car.”
Here’s a look at how Chevy’s newest addition to its small car line-up is tackling some of the common misconceptions surrounding today’s mini-cars.
Myth: Mini cars aren’t Safe
Reality: Spark features the same advanced safety technologies available on the rest of the Chevrolet passenger car lineup
The Spark protects both driver and passengers with 10 standard air bags, including dual-stage frontal air bags, seat-mounted side air bags and side curtain air bags that extend over the front and rear seating rows. A strong body frame made of high strength steel makes up more than 62 percent of the Spark’s underbody and 42 percent of its upper body.
