2023 Chevrolet Compact & Small Cars
Chevrolet is bringing its legendary dependability to the big stage in the competition for the best compact car. Sensibly sized vehicles with surprisingly roomy interiors are making a huge splash in the 2023 Chevy lineup.
Take off down windy back roads or play in the urban jungle. These cars will fit just about anywhere their performance brings you. Understated efficiency is best exemplified by the three 2023 Chevy models below.
Trax – Small SUV for Big Adventure
Even if the Chevy Trax is small on the outside, it is the perfect size for almost any adventure. This small Chevy car can confidently maneuver the narrow roads and tiny parking spaces urban life offers. With 6.2” of ground clearance, curbside parking is made easier without the worry of clipping an overhang.
Power from the 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine has significantly increased from 138 horsepower to 155 horsepower, and 148 lb-ft to 177 lb-ft of torque, offering low-end power. This power is sent to either the front or all four wheels via a smooth-shifting six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel-drive models return 24 MPG city/32 MPG highway, 23 MPG city/30 MPG highway for all-wheel-drive models.
The Trax’s elevated seating position and excellent visibility pair well with light low-speed steering result in the maneuverability needed to make tight urban driving situations drama-free. Despite its relatively short wheelbase, the Trax offers StabiliTrak electronic stability control system with traction control resulting in little body roll when turning and a firm and stable ride. Its best-in-class braking is likewise stable, inspiring confidence.
Beginning with the LS trim, exterior styling features include 16-inch alloy wheels, halogen reflector headlights, and body-colored mirrors to match the dynamic paint options.
The LT trim adds tinted glass, halogen projector-beam headlamps, LED DRLs, LED taillights, and roof-mounted roof rails. The Midnight Edition, available on LT trim, includes Midnight Black Metallic paint, 18-gloss black wheels, front and rear skid plates, and black emblems.
The Trax’s spacious and ergonomic interior features an understated layout with well-organized and easy-to-use controls. An elevated, commanding seating position gives unobstructed visibility of your surroundings. There is seating for five adults. The seats themselves are comfortable and durable fabric, with fold-flat rear seats to maximize cargo area to 48.4 cubic feet when needed. Additional storage can be found in the trunk’s underfloor storage. Infotainment comes in the way of a 7” touchscreen stereo featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as a 4G LTE WiFi hotspot.
Spark – Small Car, Big Fun
With cars getting bigger and bigger over the decades, crossovers and SUVs dominating the market, some still prefer a small and agile subcompact car. Starting at just $13,400, the Spark is Chevrolet’s smallest car that is fun, efficient, and easy to park.
The Spark shines out on the road with its compact size and catchy colors, including three brand-new hues – Crimson, Blue Glow, and Nitro Yellow. The Spark, Special Edition package, stands out with features like the two-tone painted roof, black grille, black grille surround, black bowtie emblems, 15-inch machined black-painted alloy wheels, as well as accent-color DRL bezels and mirror caps.
The Spark is nimble and lively, powered by a 98 horsepower 1.4-liter 4-cylinder engine through a five-speed manual or continuously variable automatic transmission to the front wheels, returning 29 MPG city and 38 MPG highway. Easily maneuverable, the Spark’s small size will ensure it will fit in whenever you leave home.
Entertainment comes via a 7” touchscreen Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and available 4G LTE WiFi hotspot connectivity.
The Chevy Spark makes a bold claim for the title of smallest Chevrolet car. Its small size, practical fuel efficiency, and agile handling make it the perfect city car. Keep pace with urban life thanks to cutting-edge technology options.
