With a slightly longer wheelbase and lower roof, the redesigned Spark looks less goofy. Power comes from a 98-hp, 1.4-liter four-cylinder that delivers leisurely acceleration along with plenty of engine drone. Handling is very responsive but the darty steering makes it feel unsettling at speed. The ride is unyieldingly stiff. Inside, the elevated seating position gives the driver a commanding view out. The rear seat, however, is better suited for a backpack. The MyLink infotainment system has a 7-inch color display, making the Spark up-to-date on the connectivity front. Other updates include forward-collision alert, lane-departure warning, and blind-spot warning.
