This stylish little guy’s first-gen has been bobbing and weaving through European streets for a year now, but it’ll be arriving fashionably on time on the American scene this summer… meet the 2013 Chevrolet Spark!
With fun little sentences being used such as, ‘Affordability meets swagger.’ and ‘Spark may have a starting price lower than a limbo stick after five rounds’ and ‘It’s parking where most fear to parallel.’ how could you not fall in love with this smart little spark?!
Fun is fantastic, but we all like to see the numbers:
- Transmission: 5 speed manual
- Engine: 1.2L L4 DOHC 16 valves, 85hp @ 6400 rpm, 81lbs/ft of torque @ 4200 rpm
- Length/weight: 144.6inches / 2,268.5lb
- Wheelbase: 93.5inches
- Fuel Economy (mpg): automatic 28 city / 37 hwy | manual 32 city / 38 hwy
Trunk Size: 11.4 cubic feet with a maximum trunk size of 31.2 cubic feet (more passenger and cargo room than other mini cars such as the Fiat 500, Smartfortwo and Scion IQ)
Let’s talk about the fun stuff again… There are the standard colors like Silver Ice Metallic, Denim, Salsa and Summit White. But for those people who are anything but standard, Spark can be styled in more adventurous shades like Lemonade, Techno Pink and Jalapeño, all with interior accents to match. You define you. So you define Spark.
Have some fun this summer, give us a call to find out when you can take the biggest little car to hit Clarksville Streets out for a test drive!

Leasing is growing in popularity, and represents a viable alternative to buying.
Why? Because it costs less. You’re basically paying for the estimated depreciation of the vehicle over the lease period, rather than paying for the whole value of the car. Of course, all you’re getting is the use of the car during that period, rather than actual ownership of it in the end.
Here is a quick rundown of some advantages and disadvantages to leasing rather than buying:
- A lease costs less than a purchase, you only pay a portion of the vehicles cost
- Monthly payments are lower
- No large down payment. When the lease begins, you pay the first month’s payment, title, taxes, registration, banking fees, and a security deposit.
- You don’t have to worry about selling the car when you no longer want it.
- You don’t own the car.
- You aren’t able to customize the vehicle or make modifications to it as you could if you bought it.
- There are additional charges for excessive mileage (for example, more than 15,000 miles a year) and any damage to the car.
- Generally, you will need to have the maximum insurance coverage limits.
The decision to lease or buy will always depend on your personal circumstances. If your objective is to one day be rid of car payments and you want to own, buying a car may be the best option. If, however, if your goal is to drive a new set of wheels every four years and minimize your monthly costs, leasing a car may be a good alternative.
