2013 Chevrolet Spark Priced Under $13,000

April 12, 2012

When the 2013 Chevrolet Spark hits dealer showrooms later this year, it will be one of the cheapest models available to consumers, with the base LS starting at only $12,995.

The Nissan Versa is cheaper, however it doesn't come with as many standard options as you'll find on the Spark, which includes 10 airbags, air conditioning, auxiliary jack, power windows, Onstar, and 15 inch alloy wheels.

The 1LT trim adds a 7 inch touch screen, bluetooth, USB port, power locks and windows, keyles entry, and cruise control at a starting price of $14,495.

The Spark will compete with the Fiat 500, Scion iQ, and the Smart ForTwo. When the time comes, you should be able to lease a well-equipped Spark for under $195 per month with no down payment.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.

California Residents - Important:

There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
