That's right, the Spark is on sale.
The end of the year is often a great time to purchase a new car as automakers offer cash incentives and, in the case of Chevrolet, employee pricing. We've already spotted some deals for the Camaro, but now there is an offer available for the 2020 and 2021 Chevrolet Spark, also known as the least expensive car in America. With a starting price of just $13,400, the Spark is already cheaper than every other car on sale, but from now until January 4, 2021, buyers can claim as much as $2,698 off.
Chevy's best deal applies to leftover 2020 Spark models in the 2LT trim, based on an $18,895 starting price. It combines a $948 employee discount with a $1,750 cash allowance, effectively bringing the price down to $16,197. This may still be thousands more than a base LS trim, but the 2LT does come with more equipment. The deal is also available on a 2021 Spark LS, though it cuts out the employee discount.
In terms of financing, Chevy is making it easy to take a loan out for a new Spark with 0.9% APR for up to 72 months. Buyers who don't need as much equipment on their car can opt for one of the lower trim models and still take advantage of the $1,750 cash allowance. For example, the cheapest LS trim would go from $13,400 to just $11,650 before destination and fees. With these costs applied, the Spark goes from $14,395 to $12,645.
These prices factor in the standard five-speed manual transmission. Buyers who wish to purchase a Spark LS with the optional continuously variable transmission will pay at least $15,135, dropping to $13,385 with the cash allowance.
As with all deals of this type, there is some fine print to read. Customers must take delivery by January 4, some customers may not qualify, and the deal can not be combined with special financing, lease, fleet sales, and certain other offers. It's also worth checking out some of Chevy's other end-of-year deals on leftover 2020 models. Buyers can score up to $10,330 off a Suburban, $8,370 off a Tahoe, $7,300 off a Traverse, $6,875 off an Equinox, and $9,133 off a Bolt.
