What's New for 2013:

Exterior Features
The 2013 Chevy Spark is a mini-compact 5-door hatchback available in LS, 1LT and 2LT trim levels. Standard is a set of 15-inch aluminum wheels, and Chevrolet says the new Spark offers a "choice of vibrant colors ... for those who live out loud." Those colors include Salsa, Jalapeno, Denim, Lemonade, and Hot Pink.

Interior Features
Chevy says the Spark is larger inside than other mini cars on the U.S. market. With the rear seats folded, the Spark offers 11.4 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seat and 31.2 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seat folded. Standard equipment includes air conditioning, power windows, tilt steering wheel, stereo with auxiliary audio input jack, and Ice Blue ambient lighting.

Optional Features
Standard on LT trim levels is Chevrolet's MyLink infotainment system that includes a color touch-screen radio, Bluetooth streaming audio with Pandora and Stitcher apps, voice-recognition technology, 3 months of free satellite radio, and an available navigation app with Google Local Search.

Additionally, the Spark 1LT trim includes cruise control, steering wheel controls for audio and phone, USB port, satellite radio, power door locks with remote keyless entry, power side mirrors, floor mats, and an outside temperature display. The top-of-the-line Spark 2LT trim is equipped with a leather-wrapped steering wheel, leatherette seating, heated front seats, fog lights, and upgraded exterior trim.

Under the Hood
A 1.2-liter 4-cylinder engine creating 83 horsepower is installed in the new Chevy Spark, driving the front wheels through either a standard 5-speed manual gearbox or an optional 4-speed automatic transmission. The Spark weighs 2,237 pounds with a manual transmission, and 2,269 pounds with an automatic transmission.

Fuel Economy
As this overview was written, the EPA had not finalized fuel-economy estimates for the 2013 Spark.

Safety
The 2013 Chevy Spark comes standard with 10 air bags, traction and stability control, anti-lock brakes with brake assist, hill-start assist, and 6 months of free OnStar service with Automatic Crash Response that automatically puts the Spark's occupants in touch with a live operator in the event of an air bag deployment. Even if nobody inside the vehicle can respond to the operator, emergency personnel can be sent directly to the car's location to speed rescue.

As this overview was written, neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) had performed crash tests on the 2013 Chevy Spark.
