One of the 2022 Spark’s greatest strengths is that it is packed with the latest infotainment technology available from Chevy. Each of the hatchback’s available trim grades will be equipped with a 7-inch full-colour touchscreen interface. This is where drivers will interact with the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system to control the software’s plentiful multimedia functions.
Most of us would be lost without our smartphones, and the 2022 Chevy Spark was built with this in mind. Each version of the hatchback will be compatible with both the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto suites of applications. Additionally, the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system will work with the Amazon Alexa digital home assistant.
Mobile Wi-Fi Hotspot
We live in the most connected society to ever populate the planet. That doesn’t stop just because someone is on the road. Owners of the 2022 Chevy Spark offers a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot that can accommodate several devices at once.
City/Highway Fuel Economy
Fuel efficiency is really the name of the game for the 2022 Chevy Spark. A 2022 Spark with all-wheel drive and a continuously variable transmission will be able to offer fuel economy scores of 7.7 L/100 km in the city and 6.2 L/100 km on the highway. These scores are consistent across the entire Spark lineup, with each trim offering similarly stellar fuel efficiency.
A 2022 Chevy Spark might not offer the kind of performance found with models like the Corvette or Camaro, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t fun to drive. The engine is responsive and handling around corners is as engaging as any other model that shares a class with the Spark. Additionally, the vehicle’s small size and sharp handling will be especially helpful when navigating crowded city streets.
|Specifications:||2022 Chevrolet Spark|
|Engine||ECOTEC 1.4 L 4-cylinder engine|
|Fuel Consumption (AWD) (city/highway) (L/100 km)||7.7 / 6.2|
Just because the 2022 Spark is a slim and nimble platform, drivers might still need a little extra help backing into a tight parking space. The standard Rear Vision Camera will activate at low speeds and give the driver an excellent view of the area behind the vehicle. Dynamic guidelines will provide greater precision when parking or leaving a parking space.
Active Safety Systems
Some versions of the 2022 Chevy Spark will be outfitted with Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning, and Automatic Emergency Braking. This trio of active safety systems all work together to help the driver maintain situational awareness and avoid potentially dangerous situations.
Other Safety Equipment
It only makes sense for Chevrolet to embrace the latest technology to help drivers avoid collisions in the first place. However, they have still held on to some of the fundamentals of crash safety. A high-strength steel safety cage is built into the superstructure of the 2022 Spark and the vehicle’s occupants are protected by 10 airbags.
What’s New From the 2021 Chevrolet Spark?
Very little has changed for the Chevy Spark between the 2021 and 2022 model years. The stylish and efficient hatchback continues to offer a very modest starting price while still making some of the most advanced technology available across its entire lineup. From a utility perspective, owners of the 2022 Chevy Spark will have one of the most generous cargo areas in its class as well as an array of standard and available convenience features to make the hatchback as user-friendly as possible.
