Have you heard about the new Chevrolet Spark hatchback? With its compact dimensions, expressive style, and affordable price, it’s a new Chevy that you should consider if you’re in the market for a new car that can put spark back into your daily drive.
The handling of the 2013 Chevrolet Spark is not just sporty and responsive with the carefully calibrated suspension and variable assist steering setup, but it’s also nimble because of the car’s petite size. Weighing in at roughly 2,200 pounds, the Chevy Spark is a natural when taking turns on San Diego’s curvy roads. The Spark is two inches shorter than a Mini Cooper, making it one of the easiest cars to park, whether you’re sliding into a compact space at work or parallel parking at the beach.
Impressive Fuel Efficiency
The 2013 Chevrolet Spark gets 32 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway with a manual transmission. In addition, the Spark requires only regular unleaded fuel, while many similar cars require premium fuel.
The compact Euro-hatch design of the Chevrolet Spark is sure to attract the looks of pedestrians and other drivers when you’re driving down the street. The car’s enormous front headlights and mesh grille pair with the car’s small size to give it a unique, sporty look that has yet to be matched by any other compact hatchback on the market. The Spark’s notable style continues when you hop inside. The dashboard features a dramatic design with bright colors, soft-touch materials, and an uncomplicated button layout.
A Suite of New Technologies
If you enjoy having the latest technology in your car, you’ll love the affordably priced gadgets available in the new Chevy Spark. There’s a seven-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity, Pandora Radio, and the Chevy MyLink infotainment system.

San Diego, November 2012 – General Motors has released an interim update to its inaugural sustainability report, www.gmsustainability.com, published in January. The report features new updates and analysis, and reinforces how environmental, social, and economic sustainability efforts in its vehicles and operations are integrated into the company’s business model.
“Our customers are environmentally conscious, and they appreciate companies who share their environmental efforts and sustainability goals,” said Rick Flores of City Chevrolet. “At City, we’re educating people on the fuel-efficiency features of our vehicles and even incorporating our own environmental initiatives throughout our facility.”
GM has realized year-over-year gains against all of its 2020 environmental goals, from water conservation and renewable energy to emissions reduction. The following operational and vehicle successes are detailed in the report:
Receiving an ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year award for global progress in energy efficiency from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Meeting the ENERGY STAR Challenge for Industry to cut energy intensity by at least 10 percent within five years at 54 GM facilities around the world – more than any other company. The efforts saved GM $90 million annually while avoiding the release of 1.2 million metric tons of greenhouse gases.
Achieving its 100th landfill-free facility, meaning a single household garbage bag represents more trash sent to a landfill than all of these global facilities combined.
Mentoring 9,312 students from nearly 100 schools on water quality in 2011 through GM GREEN, a partnership between all U.S. manufacturing sites and the nonprofit Earth Force to help youth understand how their actions impact watersheds.
Earning 21 Wildlife Habitat Council certifications for creating or enhancing wildlife habitats on GM properties around the world — more than any other automaker.
Pioneering an EcologicTM window label on all 2013 Chevrolet models to show consumers third-party-verified, vehicle-specific environmental features related to manufacturing, driving and recycling.
Selling 100,000 vehicles in March with an EPA-estimated 30 mpg highway or more — a first for a U.S. automaker. GM has more new nameplates and powertrain options on the way that will provide even greater fuel economy, including the Chevrolet Cruze diesel, Opel Adam, Buick Encore compact crossover and Chevrolet Impala with eAssist.
GM continues to leverage investments in sustainable innovation like the Chevrolet Volt — currently the world’s best-selling plug-in vehicle — and core technologies that will drive even higher-volume vehicle electrification by expanding sales of the Volt to China and Australia and with new vehicles such as the Impala with eAssist, Chevrolet Spark EV, Cadillac ELR, and Opel Ampera in Europe.
The report covers the latest sustainability updates in key areas of GM’s business model to design, build, and sell the world’s best vehicles and create a self-sustaining cycle of reinvestment. The report includes data from late 2011 to mid-2012, while all metrics refer to the calendar year ending Dec. 31, 2011.

If you're car shopping this holiday season in San Diego, you'll definitely want to stop by our dealership. Chevrolet, now more than 100 years old, is a carmaker that has adjusted time and time again to the changing demands of American drivers. If you’re thinking about getting a new or used car soon, take a step back and examine the history of Chevrolet to see why City Chevrolet’s line-up of new Chevy vehicles are right for you.
The history of Chevrolet began in 1911, when William Durant, a former employee of General Motors, teamed up with Louis Chevrolet, a Swiss racecar driver. Focusing on making fast cars to compete with the likes of Ford and Mercedes, Chevrolet saw immediate success in the U.S.
General Motors Purchase
Only seven years later, General Motors purchased Chevrolet. Within a short period of time, Chevrolet became GM’s most successful division. By the late 1920s, Chevrolet was officially ahead of its rival, Ford, in terms of total sales, which exceeded 1 million cars.
During the 1930s, ‘40s, and ‘50s, new technologies and a wider range of new Chevrolet models were unveiled. Advanced independent suspensions delivered a more comfortable ride than was previously known at the time, and a number of new models, including sedans, trucks, and sporty coupes, were made available to satisfy the diverse needs of American drivers.
Muscle Car Era
Designing new V8 engines and bold styles, Chevrolet evolved in the 1960s to offer the Chevy Camaro, Chevelle, and Nova to muscle-car loving Americans. By the end of the decade, the Camaro was one of Chevrolet’s most popular cars.
Modern Efficiency and Style
With almost a century of car-making experience, Chevrolet recognizes that modern Americans need fuel-efficient cars that are affordable to drive and pleasing to look at. The result is a full lineup of 2013 Chevrolets that include the Volt plug-in hybrid, the Spark microcar, the Tahoe Hybrid, and a brand-new Camaro with knockout retro style.
Hop in a new or used Chevrolet at City Chevrolet of San Diego if you’d like to feel the quality and performance that Chevrolet has to offer you and your family. Call our San Diego Chevy dealership at (619) 817-8445 for more information. You can also visit our website to learn more about the cars we have to offer.
