Sytled in a typical Hatchback with new exterior colors, the 2022 Chevy Spark price begins at $13,600 along with a destination fee of $995 (additional), standard across all trims. Also, an increase of $1,100 is certain as you switch from Manual transmission to Automatic one while having no mechanical change from the 2021 Spark as such. 

Featuring a 4-trim lineup of LS, 1LT, ACTIV, and 2LT, the 2022 Chevrolet Spark MSRP can be an expense of $13,600-$17,000 this season. Having said that, it simply translates to the fact that the range-leader Spark 2LT 2022 will cost you $3,400 more than the base LS for enhanced specs and assets. 

We Recommend

With a perfect mix of desirable features and power surge in comparison to the rest of the lineup for its cost, the 2022 Spark 1LT stands out to be the most prominent Spark 2022 configuration.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

"The Spark offers strong value for the money" - Edmunds

The 2022 Chevy Spark reviews to be comparable in terms of reliability index with a J.D power rating of 76. Stating that, an elaborated trim lineup with significant upgrades as we move to the higher ones in its drivability and interior engagement is also worth considering just like the 2022 Chevy Spark's top speed of 105 MPH. However, the basic comfort of a typical hatchback surely takes a hit and so is its isolation. 

The five-year “Cost-to-Own” can mainly be classified into depreciation, maintenance, insurance, repair, and fuel charges. The Chevy Spark LS in its 2022 model year has a maintenance charge of $3,431 and a repairing cost of $708 in total after owning it for 5 years. Its value depreciates by $7,096 in 5 years keeping its resale value in the range of $7,000 to $12,000. The estimated fuel charges account for $13,141 for a term of five years.


Buying Advice


The ACTIV trim is the one to choose from the available options. The leatherette touches, 6-speaker audio system, and exclusive suspensions on offer for sportier handling make this trim the most compelling one. One can even go for the power sunroof for better appeal altogether. Therefore, it is advisable to have it with CVT for easy city commuting that might not cost one more than $19,090 in totality.  

Features

7.5/10

"The 2022 Chevy Spark punches above its price point." - Motor Trend

The 2022 Chevy Spark is a 4-trim subcompact hatchback. The Chevy Spark price for LS gets Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System with a 7-inch diagonal color screen and 4-speaker audio system inside the cabin. It also receives Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standards. After that, the 2022 Spark 1LT MSRP introduces itself at $16,495 which further adds a 6-speaker audio system and Cruise Control over the LS configuration.    

With an investment of $17,595, one owns Spark ACTIV 2022 trim whose interior has been adorned with Leather Upholstery and a Leather-wrapped steering wheel. Not just that, it gets exclusive Touring Suspension as standard for that extra control over handling and dynamics. The 2LT comes as the most expensive one at $17,995 that features the same assets as that of ACTIV along with Enhanced Driver Information Center and Rear Parking Aid that are specific to this trim only.

7.0/10

"The entire look is generally agreeable, while the large glass areas promote decent outward vision"- Kelley Blue Book

The 2022 Spark is dimensionally unchanged and looks just like a typical hatchback with no styling appeal.  And so are the 2022 Chevy Spark colors like Blue Glow Metallic, Cayenne Orange Metallic, Crimson Metallic, Mosaic Black Metallic, Mystic Blue Metallic, Nightfall Gray Metallic, Red Hot, Silver Ice Metallic, Summit white and Synergy Green Metallic. Chevrolet has also added the newer Crimson Dark Red, Blue Glow, and Nitro Yellow. 

Furthermore, it receives a power sunroof on top at an additional expense of $1,000 as per trim specific. It is fitted with standard 15-inch wheels and all-season tires along with a spoiler in the rear. The solar absorbing glasses are also attached all around for a reduced ray interior. Though the design is simple but one can opt for the painted and chrome bodyside moldings, both at $235 each.

Safety

7.0/10

"The Spark offers few active safety features in its least expensive configuration." - cars.usnews

The Chevy Spark has no safety rating either for the 2022 or the 2021 model year by the NHTSA or IIHS. Though IIHS has rated it in two parameters where it scores a "Good", the detailed testing is yet to be done. On top of that, the Chevrolet Spark lacks the standard safety features at lower trims simply for its price tag.

Some of the available safety features have been listed down: 

  • Emergency Braking Assist
  • Traction and Stability Control
  • Passenger Airbag Occupant Sensing Deactivation
  • Post Collision Safety System
  • Dual front and rear side airbags
  • Dusk Sensing Headlamps
  • Anti-theft Alarm System (with the higher-level trims)

Competition

7.0/10

2022 Chevrolet Spark vs 2022 Kia Rio Hatchback

The 2022 Chevy Spark lacks the performance and acceleration characteristics against the prowess of Kia Rio. Despite being more powerful, Rio offers impressive fuel economy and range coverage. It also takes an edge in interior spaciousness and cargo capacity. On the whole, Rio is the clear winner. 

2022 Chevrolet Spark vs 2022 Mitsubishi Mirage

The 2022 Mitsubishi Mirage has better performance and range practicality. Even the seating inside the cabin is much more balanced with an enhanced cargo capacity at the disposal of the Mirage. Getting all these at a competitive price tag makes the case for the Mirage between the two. 

Final Verdict

7.5/10

The 2022 Chevy Spark is affordable and offers a multitude of trims but lags behind, in all aspects, against its rivals. Be it power surge or comfort seating, the rival hatchbacks are far more superior and practical. It even lacks the additional packages that may have enhanced its stature. So, the Chevrolet Spark is surely not a pick in this class. Chevrolet will soon be discontinuing the Spark in favor of upcoming EVs and SUVs. So, the Kia Rio Hatchback stand out tall in the hatchback segment and is a much better option.
