Chevrolet cuts price of Spark to just £7,495

The five-door compact car is one of the newest models in Chevrolet’s range and features the modern grille seen on the likes of the new Orlando MPV, Aveo hatchback and Cruze saloon.

Chevrolet has cut the price of the entry-level 1.0-litre LS model to offer one of the lowest priced new cars on the market.

The price includes air conditioning, electric front windows and a six-speaker CD player with MP3 USB connectivity.

However, the US-based car maker will also lower the price of a range-topping 1.2-litre LT model by £1,490 for customers interested in a higher level of equipment with the city car.

The LT model is now priced at £8,995 on-the-road and comes with 15" alloy wheels, climate control, rear electric windows, steering wheel-mounted audio controls and heated door mirrors.

LT models also benefit from sportier bumpers and roof rails than the LS version and a range of body graphics are available for a more customised feel to the exterior.

Launched early in 2010 as a replacement for the Chevrolet Matiz, the Spark is the smallest car in Chevrolet’s new range and one of the cheapest new cars available to buy in the UK.

The tall stance and five-door layout improves practicality and creates extra headroom in the back for passengers, while the motorbike-inspired instrument panel is designed to appeal to younger buyers.

All models come with six airbags and a maximum five-star safety rating from the EuroNCAP safety tests.

The Chevrolet Spark comes with Chevrolet’s five-year warranty and is available to buy now for reduced prices.

The Chevrolet Spark offers will run until 30 June 2011 from Chevrolet’s UK dealerships.
