2014 Chevrolet Spark Fuel Economy

Fuel Economy

The 2014 Chevrolet Spark, at least in gasoline form, is nothing spacial from a fuel-efficiency standpoint. And for a car this small, a lot of shoppers might frankly be shocked to find out that it managed just 30 or 31 mpg in the city and 39 on the highway.

Versus last year's four-speed automatic transmission, the new CVT automatic is an improvement--rated at 2 mpg better.

Gasoline versions of the Spark still don't hit 40 mpg on the highway -- yet the Spark EV is the most efficient car on the market.

The 2014 Chevrolet Spark EV, on the other hand, is the most efficient vehicle available in the U.S. market, according to GM (and in terms of miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe). Its 21-kWh battery pack helps provide an EPA-rated 82 miles of driving range—and based on what we saw on this first drive, that will be quite easy to achieve.
