2016 Chevrolet Spark to start at $9,995 in Canada

The redesigned Spark minicar made its Canadian debut at the Montreal Auto Show, and Chevrolet announced a surprisingly low base price of just under ten grand, before adding on freight and delivery charges of $1,600.

Obviously, the $9,998 Nissan Micra, which has been a strong seller in Canada – and especially in Quebec – was the point of reference for setting the Spark’s base MSRP. The little Chevy is now the lowest-priced new car in the country, beating out the Nissan by three bucks.

The 2016 Chevrolet Spark comes standard with 10 airbags, a rearview camera, a MyLink infotainment system with seven-inch touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration in addition to OnStar 4G LTE on-board Wi-Fi (which requires a subscription fee). GM is clearly trying to draw a young customer base with its roundup of connectivity features.

The front-drive, four-passenger Spark is equipped with a 1.4-litre four-cylinder engine that develops 98 horsepower and 94 lb-ft of torque. A five-speed manual transmission is included, while a continuously variable automatic is optional.

Customers willing to spend more than ten grand can also equip the Spark with active safety features such as a blind spot monitor, forward collision alert and lane departure warning.

The 2016 Chevrolet Spark will start rolling into GM dealerships next week.
