The Chevrolet Spark has taken Best Budget Car honours in the annual CAR Magazine Top 12 Best Buys Awards for 2014. In student-focused Campus guise, the locally-manufactured Chevrolet Spark continues to prove it has what it takes to be the best in a fierce class of pocket-friendly competitors.
“The Chevrolet 1.2 Spark Campus represents the essence of a ‘budget car’, featuring a mix of funky, youthful styling and a no-frills approach with no compromise on safety,” comments Chevrolet Brand Manager, Tim Hendon.
According to CAR Magazine, the Spark 1.2 Campus “healthily undercuts all its main rivals” while offering the crucial safety features which form key criteria for the award. The Spark 1.2 Campus was also recognised for good fit and finish, excellent cabin space considering its compact size and a composed ride with assured handling. The engine was said to “fight above its weight class, feeling surprisingly alert in city driving.”
CAR Magazine went on to conclude: “In terms of finding a balance between value for money, packaging and safety items, nothing can touch the Spark Campus in this segment.”
