The Chevrolet Spark 1.0 5dr is cheaper than a bag of screws. To be precise, this pint- sized city car could be taking you to the shops for only £7,215. Once you take ownership the cost cutting continues. It averages 55.4mpg, manages 67.3mpg on the extra-urban cycle, and its emissions are 119g/km. This equates to road tax band C/£30. There are a handful of more cost effective vehicles available – but most have two wheels and peddles.

The Chevrolet Spark 1.0 5dr is the replacement to the Matiz. Fortunately, it is light years ahead of its horrendous predecessor. As such the steering is light for easy manoeuvring, the clutch works almost effortlessly, and the ride is fairly comfortable. Even at motorway speeds life is reasonably pleasant, although there is plenty of cabin noise. It has a few toys too, including the: immobiliser, twin air-bags, power steering, and split/fold rear seats.

Here comes the killer point though. The entry-level Chevrolet Spark 1.0 5dr makes sense because it is easy to live, reasonable to drive - and very, very cheap. Prices for higher- spec versions rise dramatically to an alarming £10,845. This Korean city car is simply not worth this sum. After all, a brand new Volkswagen Polo only costs £9,995. Easy choice.
