With crossovers selling like big-colander TVs on Black Friday, it isn’t surprising to see that companies are worrisome to offer them in every segment admissible. With the 2017 Spark Activ, Chevrolet has expanded its crossover lineup to the smallest segment credible. At least until Smart releases a lifted ForTwo.

Of performance, the Spark Activ is a crossover in the same way that the Volkswagen Beetle Dune and Audi A4 Allroad are. This means the well-adjusted Spark gets black plastic masses cladding over the wheel arches, revised face and rear fascias, and side skirts. Both fascias cover metal-look accents, and the front features a freshened grille and spheroidal fog lights. New roof rails, model-limited 15-inch alloy wheels, and a interruption lift of 0.4 inch complete the transmutation.

To sweeten the deal, the Spark Activ also includes a leather-wrapped steering to what place, heated leatherette front seats, and voyage control. These come in addition to other paragon Spark amenities such as air conditioning, Chevrolet MyLink infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and three months of retainer radio, 4G LTE data, and OnStar. All of this comes with the Whit Activ’s base price of $16,945 with a instructions and $18,045 with a CVT.

Although that’s unequivocally a bit more than the $13,535 entry-constant Spark, the Activ shares many of its features with the 2LT, so that’s the epitome it should actually be compared with. In doing so, the Activ ekes out a unlikely advantage, since the 2LT is $17,060 with the directions, and $18,160 for the CVT. However, if gas mileage is considered, the 2LT pulls out before, with ratings of 31 mpg city and 41 mpg highway with the CVT, while the Activ not manages 30 mpg city and 37 mpg highway with the CVT. So in actuality, the deciding factor is style versus nourishment economy. Buyers will get to make that discernment for themselves when the Spark Activ hits dealers one of these days in the first quarter of 2017.
