Sporty Is How to Describe the New Chevrolet Spark Activ

The 2017 Chevrolet Spark Activ is more than just a minicar. It’s a vehicle that is made for adventure. There are many adjectives that can be used to describe the Activ – sophisticated, efficient, and full of attitude come to mind – but the one that fits it best is “sporty.

That’s not usually a word that people associate with minicars, but we at the Valley Chevy Spencer car dealership strongly believe that the Activ breaks most of the rules of what makes a minicar and could very well reshape the way the public views this type of vehicle.


Perfect for an Urban Adventure

The first thing people are likely to notice about the 2017 Chevrolet Spark Activ is how tough it looks. Despite its small size and compact frame, the Activ is no pushover. This is a vehicle that can handle just about any inner city adventure you can imagine.

Its trail-inspired accents, including front and rear fascias designed to resemble off-road skid plates, give it the look of a vehicle that’s made to handle the rough roads of your town or city without flinching or faltering, while still getting you there in style.

The sportiness of the Activ goes well beyond its appearance. This minicar is powered by a 1.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that’s capable of 98 horsepower: a surprising amount of power for something known as a “minicar.” Combine that with the 15-in alloy wheels and new, sportier suspension that gives the Activ an additional lift of .4 inches, this is one little car that will surprise you with its power and durability.

Equipped for Exploring

If your image of a minicar is just of a pleasant little vehicle that will get you where you need to go without much fuss and not much more, then the 2017 Chevrolet Spark Activ is sure to break your misconceptions. The Activ’s sporty front-wheel-drive gives it an extra boost in power, and its roof rails for storage, round fog lights with special housing, contrast wheelhouse, and rocker moldings make sure that the Activ can handle whatever the road throws at it.

The surprises the Activ has in store go beyond its exterior. Many of the interior appointments have been upgraded from previous versions of the Spark, making for an even more comfortable ride for driver and passengers.

Interior features include standard heated, black leatherette front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with smartphone and audio system controls, remote keyless entry, and an incredibly impressive array of infotainment center features.

These include a Chevrolet MyLink multimedia system equipped with a 7-in. touch screen and a rear-vision camera, as well as 3 months free of satellite radio, OnStar, and Wi-Fi hotspot connectivity.
