Chevrolet revealed the 2016 Spark microcar at the 2016 Montreal Auto Show, along with a tasty tidbit of information that should tickle the buying bone of many potential first-time car buyers. With a starting price of just $9,995, the Spark now has the lowest cost of entry of any new car in Canada. The margins are slim; it undercuts the former holder of the cheapest car crown, the Nissan Micra, by a whopping three dollars.
The 2016 Chevrolet Spark sports a 1.4-litre four-banger, good for 98 horsepower and 94 lb.-ft. of torque; the MIcra makes a little more than that.
Thing is, with the Spark, it’s about more than just power (who really buys these cars for their power outputs, anyway?). In addition to being the least expensive car on the market, the Spark will also be one of the most connected in the class. It can be specced with a WiFi hotspot, and it’s the first vehicle in the segment to offer Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
With destination costs, the Spark will be available for $11,595 once it hits dealers in the coming weeks.
