Car Profiles - Chevrolet Spark

CHEVROLET SPARK

Updated in 2013, the Spark has some virtues that keeps buyers going for it. Futuristic looks is one, same as the practicality. However, if you need more amenities you might want to check out other rivals which has more for the same price

The Good: Adequate headroom, funky styling.
The Bad: Slow acceleration with the AT, isn't exactly a class standout. Could have been specced better.

Price Range: P548,888-P598,888
