Bring a Little Adventure to Your Life

The 2017 Chevy Spark ACTIV offers an increased ride height and skid plates that allow drivers to explore some of life’s wilder trails. The urban-chic design of the new Spark allows you to be an urban driver during the week, then take off for an adventure on the weekend to parts previously unknown. “The new Spark ACTIV is all about adventurous fun and style,” according to Steve Majoros, Chevy marketing director. “It has an attitude, while still offering the sophisticated, efficient and connected driving experience customers have come to love.” The new Spark ACTIV will arrive at the Freeway Chevrolet showroom in the first quarter of 2017.

ACTIV Comes With Tons of Standard Features

Along with the revised suspension that raises the clearance by about a half-inch and the skid plates to protect important components, the new ACTIV offers unique features such as round fog lamps, contrasting moldings and a special grille with prominent ACTIV badging. Starting at just $16,945 when equipped with a manual transmission, the Spark ACTIV also comes with an upscale interior that includes heated leatherette seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and and infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen. Compatibility with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto means you can use your smartphone to stream music, play podcasts or use a number of limited apps.

Spark ACTIV Loaded with Tech

You get three free months of 4G LTE Wi-Fi service with your new Spark ACTIV, allowing you to have Internet access wherever your adventures may roam, within cell service limitations. You’ll also get three free months of SiriusXM satellite radio and OnStar telemetry. A rear camera, cruise control, remote entry, power windows and steering wheel audio and communication controls are all standard features.

Compact Spark Both Roomy and Safe

Fold down the rear seat on the 2017 Spark and you get a roomy 27.2 cubic feet of storage, or enough to hold plenty of camping gear for your outdoor adventure. The peppy 1.4L Ecotec engine not only gives you enough power to get over any mountain pass, but also delivers a hybrid-like 37 mpg on the highway. The 2017 Chevy Spark also comes in LS, 1LT and 2LT trim packages starting at just $13,875. You can choose from manual transmission or automatic with any trim, proving that good things do come in small packages. See and test drive the new Spark today at Freeway Chevrolet.

Sophisticated Style on Display at SEMA

The recent SEMA auto show in Las Vegas was the perfect venue for Chevrolet to unveil its Malibu and Cruz “Blue Line” concept vehicles. Giving customers the option to personalize their cars is the thought behind the Blue Line series, which features a more sophisticated look with an athletic stance. “The Chevrolet Blue Line Series concepts integrate accessories that offer greater personalization choices for customers,” according to parts marketing director Roger McCormack. “Each vehicle wears production and concept accessories thematically linked under the Blue Line Series banner. We look forward to gauging public reaction at the SEMA show and other venues.” See what kind of official Chevy parts and accessories are available to customize your ride by stopping in to the parts department at Freeway Chevrolet.

Malibu Combines Traditional Look With Modern Feel

By providing a traditional look with a Genesis White paint job, the Malibu Blue Line concept creates a blank slate around which to build a modern, athletic vehicle. An official Chevy suspension lowering kit brings the ride height down by about a half-inch, providing a more sporty look and better handling. The lowered look is accented by a ground effects kit with rear diffuser. A black grille insert and black Bowtie logo highlight the front. Inside there are special sport pedals, metal badging on the floor liners and illuminated door sills. A concept performance braking kit, tinted headlights and polished exhaust round out the concept vehicle.

Cruze Concept Builds Off RS Hatchback

Chevy started with a sporty RS Hatchback to build its Cruze Blue Line concept. Also painted Genesis White, the Cruz looks either white or gray depending on the lighting. Blue tinted windows and blue metallic 18-inch wheels provide a colorful accent. Head to the parts department at Freeway Chevrolet and you can get the same chrome grill insert and suspension lowering kit that designers used on the Cruze Concept. A performance brake package will be available by the end of this year, and performance air intake and exhaust systems are coming by next summer. The concept vehicle features a special black interior with graphite accents on the doors, shift knob and instrument panel. You can modify your Cruze now with the same sport pedal kit, interior trim and illuminated door sills used in the show vehicle. Remember that when Freeway Chevrolet installs any accessories or performance parts, your new car warranty remains unaffected.
