Three colors formerly available for the 2021 Chevy Spark hatchback can no longer be ordered, GM Authority has learned. The colors are Passion Fruit and Toasted Marshmallow, which were available as standard, and – no doubt to the dismay of Enya fans – Caribbean Blue, which was a $395 option. As of this writing, all three are still shown on the Chevrolet website, though this will likely change very soon.
Chevrolet will replace them with three other colors in the near future, but it has not yet been confirmed what these will be.

This change is unlikely to affect sales of the Chevy Spark, whose popularity seems to be increasing. There was a slight downturn of 5.21 percent in Q4 of 2020 in the U.S., but for the calendar year as a whole, sales rose by 7.02 percent, a performance beaten only by the Blazer, Bolt EV and Corvette among Chevrolet models.
It can’t hurt that the 2021 Chevy Spark is at present the lowest-priced car on sale in the United States. The entry-level LS with manual transmission has an MSRP of $14,790, including a $995 destination freight charge. Its closest rival, the Mitsubishi Mirage ES HB, is priced to start at $15,565 despite being 20 horsepower short and having only seven airbags compared with 10 for the Spark.
However, it’s also true to say that the Chevy Spark is one of the minor players in Chevrolet’s line-up, with just 33,478 sales in 2020. To put that another way, for everyone who bought a Spark last year, nearly 18 more bought a Silverado.
