If you’re looking for a compact car that parks easily and will fit well into any budget, the 2022 Chevy Spark is the perfect fit. With lots of personality and loads of technology, the 2022 Spark has a lot to offer for such a small price tag. Fuel efficient and spunky, the Spark is a great choice for commuters looking to save on gas or for young buyers seeking a ride that stands out on the road and keeps you connected while you drive. With seating for four passengers, the Spark still has lots of room for the supplies you need to take to work or pick up groceries on the way home. When you need more room for cargo, the rear seat can fold down for extra luggage or larger items you want to transport.
The 2022 Spark comes in four trims: LS, 1LT, 2LT, and Activ. A surprising number of convenience and tech features are found on every model, including safety features like electronic traction control and hill start assist. Front-wheel drive is standard for all trims, and the 2022 Spark is powered by a 1.4-liter Ecotec engine paired to either a five-speed manual or a continuously variable transmission. Buyers who love the option of manual will enjoy the fun of driving stick in a time when most manufacturers only offer automatic! Each trim offers options to make your Spark your own with appearance details that will take its personality up a notch, and with conveniences that connect your device, you can personalize your tech, too.
The 2022 Chevy Spark is packed with technology that comes standard for all trims. With the Chevy Infotainment 3 system with the seven-inch touchscreen, users will find the system intuitive and easy to use. A combination of physical buttons and touchscreen interaction allows two ways to access the content on the infotainment system, and either swiping or turning a dial makes it simple to switch between pages. Standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto pair with compatible devices so content can be shared with the infotainment system, and standard Bluetooth connectivity lets you make hands-free calls or stream content using your device.
WiFi connectivity is also standard for all trims and does not require a subscription to add the service through Chevy Connected access if buyers wish to add it to their 2022 Spark for a monthly fee. Chevy Connected access provides free use of certain features through the infotainment system, such as vehicle maintenance schedules or the Marketplace, and includes the capability to add OnStar services for emergency assistance and security. Features such as locating gas stations, restaurants, or even parking spaces are part of the Marketplace app, which allows users to pay for services ahead of arrival to make stops quick and convenient with participating vendors.
Other services provided by Chevy Connected access include features like the MyChevrolet app, which is free to download to your phone and works with only certain trim levels of the 2022 Spark. You could be able to engage remote starting or locking the vehicle using your phone. Trims which have the capability to use these systems will need to have powered accessories and remote entry features to utilize remote services, but the system includes the management of WiFi access, setting servicing appointments, and contains the owner’s manual. To pair your device to the vehicle, two USB data ports are located in the base of the front stack to connect your device to the infotainment system. All trims except the entry-level LS include a three-month trial of Sirius XM All Access.
Good things come in small packages, and the 2022 Chevy Spark is no exception. For a compact car, the Spark has an incredible style that will make your vehicle unforgettable when you drive past people in the streets. Exciting colors are bright and cheerful, and for 2022 models, there are three new colors which include Crimson, Blue Glow, and Nitro Yellow, for an extra pop of unique appeal. Ten paint colors are available for the lineup in all, and they add character to the trendy, compact appearance of the Spark. With fun features like a standard rear spoiler and hidden door openers for the rear doors, this little hatchback is perfect for buyers who want to stand out in the crowd of blue and grey vehicles in every lot.
More than paint colors are available to make the 2022 Spark your own unique vehicle, with the Spark Special Edition or the Activ trim to offer up more details to the exterior, both of which give the Spark a sportier look. Buyers who purchase the 1LT trim can add the Special Edition package for machine-finish alloy wheels, a black grille, and the option for a two-tone roof in either Black Metallic or Summit White. Mirror caps and grille surrounds are painted in the same hue as the roof for extra flair.
Choosing the Activ upper trim adds a number of appearance options which include gunmetal silver wheels, a custom grille, and silver roof rails to make the look of the Spark even more striking on the road. With the Activ trim, buyers also gain fog lights and special halogen headlights with integrated daytime running lights. Black exterior details in the rocker moldings and mirror caps bring out the sporty styling and accent the detail in the custom grille. To add chrome details to the look of your 2022 Spark, choose the 2LT trim that has silver-painted aluminum alloy wheels and chrome molding and door handles. For the 2LT trim only, the available powered sunroof can be optioned for the fun of a little open-air driving anywhere you go.
The low price of the 2022 Spark includes plenty of conveniences for every trim. All models come with standard features like a cabin air filter and solar-absorbing glass in the windshield that make the interior of the Spark more comfortable. Whether seated in front or back, all passengers have a designated cup holder, and a map pocket on the back of the seat makes a great spot to store coloring books or small toys for kids riding along. For security, all Spark models come with an engine immobilizer to prevent those entering with unauthorized means from being able to drive your vehicle, and the cargo area has a cover to keep valuables out of sight.
Drivers will appreciate the ease of automatic halogen projector-beam headlights and the rearview camera for excellent visibility. For more visibility, the rear window defogger and rear intermittent wiper make backing out of driveways or parking spaces safer. A remote fuel filler door pops open with a simple release when you need to stop at the gas station—a convenience buyers can pay for ahead of time with the Marketplace app in the infotainment system. Purchasing any model above the entry-level LS trim rewards buyers with more conveniences to make driving and access to your 2022 Spark easier.
Features like cruise control accessed by steering wheel-mounted buttons and powered door locks and windows provide you with modern amenities that simplify driving your 2022 Spark. Upper trims will gain conveniences that also connect to remote options that can be accessed through Chevy Connected remote services, like remote keyless entry and heated front seats. Other features take the Spark into more upscale territory with a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated exterior mirrors, and LED daytime running lights. The addition of rear park assist exclusively for the 2LT trim will warn the driver if anything is behind the Spark when you drive in reverse.
