Overview

The funky-looking Chevrolet Spark is the replacement for the Matiz, but it’s a huge step forward in terms of comfort and quality. Like the car it replaces, it’s a five-door that’s designed to carry four adults and is ideal for city and town driving with light steering. But there are few other similarities with the Matiz. For starters, the Spark is very distinctive and bold, while inside it has a neatly styled cabin, which although not especially sophisticated, is a big improvement in terms of comfort and refinement.
