2013 Chevrolet Spark Priced Under $13,000
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.
