The Chevrolet Spark is a big step forward when you compare it to the Matiz which it replaced. The bold nose and angular shape is designed to appeal to younger buyers, but in reality the Spark looks fussy compared to rivals such as the Hyundai i10. Power comes from a choice of two petrol engines - 1.0-litre and 1.2-litre - and both can return more than 55mpg. Considering how small the Spark is, passenger space is good, but the boot is small. And while the cabin looks smart, the hard, shiny plastics that it's made from feel cheap.
