Fancy a new Chevrolet Spark 1.0+ for only £117 per-month? Yes!
Fancy a new Chevrolet Spark 1.0+ for only £117 per-month? Yes! Great news then, this pint-sized city car is now available on a personal contract hire package. Simply sign on the dotted line then – to use Chevrolet's word – put a further £1,404 'down'. An alternative is to purchase this run-around outright for £6,995. This includes: one year's roadside assistance, the six-year anti-perforation warranty, and the five-year/100,000 mile warranty.The Chevrolet Spark 1.0+ 5dr is the replacement to the Matiz. Fortunately, it is light years ahead of its horrendous predecessor. As such the steering is light for easy manoeuvring, the clutch works almost effortlessly, and the ride is fairly comfortable. Even at motorway speeds life is reasonably pleasant, although there is plenty of cabin noise. It has a few toys too, including the: immobiliser, twin air-bags, power steering, and split/fold rear seats. Here comes the killer point though. The reasonably popular Chevrolet Spark 1.0+ 5dr makes sense because it is easy to live with, pleasant to drive - and very, very cheap. The higher-specified versions are less desirable, simply because for the price motorists can purchase more capable machines. The top-spec Spark, for example, costs £10,495. Not much perhaps, but a brand new Volkswagen Polo could be yours for £9,995. Easy choice.
