Some Spark safety 101 for future and current owners....

The Defense
Prevent

Spark knows safety is important to you and your friends. It is a Chevrolet, after all. Safety begins with prevention. That’s why every Spark comes with safety technology that helps keep you safe and on track like the StabiliTrak® Electronic Stability Control System with ABS and Brake Assist to help out when the roads aren’t as reliable as your car. And Hill Start Assist helps with those tricky inclines by staying put for a second after the brake is released to help keep you moving forward.

Protect

In the event of a collision, safety features jump into action to help protect you and your passengers. Spark is equipped with 10 standard air bags†, because all of your cargo is precious. There are also front-passenger dual safety belt pretensioners to help keep you in place.
Respond

Should a collision occur, crucial information can be instantly relayed to the OnStar® command center via the OnStar Automatic Crash Response system†. At the command center, trained Advisors utilize GPS technology to pinpoint your exact location and can request help be sent right away — even if you’re unable to respond. It’s part of OnStar† Directions & Connections® Plan, standard for six months on every Spark. Read more about Chevy vehicle safety.

i wonder when cars like the Chevy Spark will get pre-colission technology, that would help along with the 10 air bags and stability control
right now it's only high end vehicles that have that safety technology, it's going to be a while before it ends up in a sub $15k vehicle like our Sparks.
