Serra of Jackson would like to say "Thank You" to everyone who
came out to watch the raising of "Old Glory".
When it comes to getting the most for your long-term automotive budget, it's hard to beat the Chevrolet Spark. For a second year in a row it takes the 5-Year Cost to Own crown among the already-frugal class of subcompact cars.
Key to the Spark's long-term affordability is its low initial price. Starting around $13,000, the 2015 Spark is the least-expensive new Chevy. That budget-friendly price makes it a natural fit for younger drivers, while this 4-door hatchback's diminutive size is well-suited for around-town driving. As with its all-electric Spark EV sibling, this subcompact Chevy isn't ideal for long highway commutes but is a champ in crowded urban environments where it can snag even the smallest of parking spots.
The Spark's assets don't end with value pricing and a fuel economy rating up to 39 mpg. As we noted in our full review, "Beyond its low price and high fuel economy, the Spark boasts a larger-than-expected interior and vibrant exterior styling that's offered in an array of bright colors with names like Salsa, Lime Green and Lemonade."
Up to four passengers can fit into a Spark, and when the rear seats aren't in use they fold to create a sizable cargo space. Up front a motorcycle-inspired dash and standard 7-inch touchscreen command center add visual pizzazz.
This Chevy's size won't suit everyone, but for buyers seeking a small car that has an even smaller impact on their budget, the Spark can pay off in a big way.
As our recent review duly noted, "If you're looking for a big, comfortable 5-passenger family sedan with style, technology and value, the 2015 Chevy Impala should top your list."
Matching a smartly styled exterior with a spacious, well-finished and impressively quiet cabin, the Impala makes a great first impression that's designed to linger on as the miles -- and years -- go by.
Those seeking to add even more charm to the Impala mix can opt for upline extras like heated/ventilated front seats, adaptive cruise control and a Bose Surround Sound audio system along with enhanced safety features like blind-spot monitoring and lane-departure alert. On the cleaner/greener front, the Impala's base 4-cylinder engine now boasts an efficiency enhancing start/stop system to complement the new dual-fuel option for its available V6. Combining a well-rounded personality, people-pleasing features and a solid value orientation, the Chevrolet Impala makes a compelling case for its top full-size sedan ranking in the 2015 KBB Cost-to-Own showdown.
Returning as KBB's 5-Year Cost to Own titlist in the full-size sedan category, the Chevrolet Impala has gained even more appeal for the new season thanks to a several new standards and options. Available in LS, LT and sporty LTZ trim grades, the Impala now features OnStar with 4G LTE connectivity and a built-in WiFi hotspot and offers a CNG-compatible bi-fuel engine choice. The Impala's initial appeal starts with its attractive sticker. The LS model officially opens under $28,000, but it currently carries a KBB Fair Purchase price below $27,000.
