Chevrolet has introduced a third model into its entry-level Spark range with the addition of the Spark Campus now available in South Africa. Although the Spark Campus retains the latest styling and technology virtues of the Spark L and LS offerings, it cuts back on some of the non-essentials and styling options available in the L specification level.
Chevrolet Spark Campus – Specifications and Features
Like the Spark L and LS models, the Spark Campus is also fitted with a 1.2-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine that produces 60kW at 6 400rpm and displays a maximum torque figure of 108Nm at 4 800rpm. The Spark Campus exhibits a combined fuel consumption figure of 5.4-litres/100km with a CO2 emissions figure of only 129g/km. The Spark Campus will accelerate to 100km/h in 13.3 seconds while reaching a top speed of 164km/h. Power is transferred to the front wheels via a five-speed manual gearbox.
Standard features for the Chevrolet Spark Campus include ABS brakes with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), driver and passenger front airbags with de-activation for the passenger system. Security features include a transponder immobiliser system and key activated central locking.
Convenience features include a manual air conditioner, power steering, height adjustment for the driver’s seat, tinted glass all round, rear window de-fogger, cup holders and interior courtesy and map lights. Styling includes colour coded door handles, bumpers and exterior rear view mirrors.
