Being the most affordable GM model sold in the United States and Canada, the Chevrolet Spark is an interesting vehicle that is (arguably) in a segment of one. The mini car has been quietly racking up sales volumes, growing deliveries 32 percent in the U.S. and 21 percent in Canada, in 2019 over 2018 levels. After entering the 2020 model year without any changes (save for a new special edition), the mini Chevy is getting a handful of changes for the 2021 model year. Here’s what’s new and different for the 2021 Chevrolet Spark.
The model range for the 2021 model year remains unchanged, with four trim levels on tap, starting with the base L, followed by LT, the more rugged ACTIV, and 2LT.
All the changes to the 2021 Chevrolet Spark are to the exterior. We see the deletion of two exterior colors and the addition of two new hues:
- Cayenne Orange
- Mystic Blue
Rounding out the changes is the deletion of 15-inch black-painted aluminum wheels (RPO Code SDV), which is an LPO-level item.
The interior remains unchanged, continuing with the same design, technology, and five-passenger seating configuration.
Three interior color combinations remain on offer, including:
- Jet Black / Jet Black
- Jet Black / Dark Anderson Silver Metallic
- Jet Black / Caribbean Blue
Mechanically, the 2021 Chevrolet Spark also goes unchanged, with the naturally-aspirated 1.4L I-4 LV7 engine making the same 98 horsepower and 94 pound-feet of torque. Two available transmissions – a 5-speed manual or an automatic CVT.
The current, second-generation Chevrolet Spark was introduced for the 2016 model year, with a midcycle refresh coming being announced in 2019 that brought slightly revised front and rear ends. We expect the Spark to continue in its current form at least through the 2022 model year, and potentially thereafter, before being replaced by an all-new model or being discontinued and being indirectly replaced by an EV.
