By this point, the Chevy Spark is a compact hatchback that Wisconsin drivers know well. This isn’t a bad thing, of course, but might leave many among us assuming that we know all that there is to know about the model. But not so fast, folks; we’ve received word that there will be an all new 2017 Chevy Spark ACTIV trim, which represents a sportier take on our versatile mini-car.

What Makes the 2017 Chevy Spark ACTIV different?
If there’s one thing that is slightly surprising about the 2017 Chevy Spark ACTIV, it’s that it convincingly takes a compact and actually makes it look like a credible mini-crossover. That’s due to a unique suspension package that provides lift to the existing Spark’s silhouette. In addition to its more athletic posture, it also offers distinctive 15-inch alloy wheels, unique front and rear fascia, roof rails, black heated leatherette seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a rocker panel and fender trim. All in all, it represents a bold step forward for the Spark nameplate.
What Tech Features does the 2017 Chevy Spark ACTIV offer?
Many of the features found on the 2017 Chevy Spark ACTIV are shared with the popular 2LT trim level, which means that there are a bevy of great tech amenities along for the ride. Every Spark ACTIV receives the Chevrolet MyLink interface with a 7-inch-diagonal color touchscreen, which is compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There is also a rear-vision camera system, as well as complimentary three-month subscriptions for SiriusXM satellite radio, OnStar, and the 4G LTE WiFi Hotspot.

How does the 2017 Chevy Spark ACTIV perform?
The 2017 Chevy Spark ACTIV is powered by the same outstanding engine/transmission platform that the standard Spark employs: an EcoTec 1.4L engine mated to either a manual transmission or a continuously variable transmission (CVT). In either case, buyers are rewarded with up to 37 highway mpg.
