Compact Size, Full-On Comfort

The 2013 Spark is Chevrolet’s latest entry into the American sub-compact car market with this 4-passenger, 5-door mini hatchback. For a small car, the Spark seems quite generous with both front leg room and head clearance to accommodate taller drivers. Interior space measures 86.3 cubic feet and the rear 60/40 split fold down seat configuration leaves plenty of cargo storing options.

Measuring just 144.7″ long and 62.9″ wide, the Spark is touted as the ideal city-driving car — efficient, maneuverable, easy to park and stingy on gas, boasting 32 mpg in city driving when equipped with the manual transmission. Three models are available, the LS,1LT and 2LT, all featuring a 1.2L Ecotec 4-cylider engine with variable timing and a 5-speed manual transmission as standard. A 4-speed automatic transmission comes as an option. The power plant is rated at 85 hp and 82 ft/lbs of torque. Other standard equipment includes A/C, power windows, OnStar, rear wiper, power steering, outside temperature indicator and 15″ alloy wheels.

Standard safety features include 10 airbags, traction control, brake assist and electronic stability control. 1LT and 2LT models both include a 7″ (diagonal) color touch screen ‘infotainment’ system called MyLink with audio controls on the steering wheel. Also added to the two upgraded versions are power locks, remote key-less entry, anti-theft system and power mirrors. The 2LT versions include heated leatherette seats, fog lights and a leather-covered steering wheel. All models carry a 5-year, 100,000 mile warranty on the drivetrain assembly.

Get Behind the Wheel of a 2013 Terrain

The 2013 GMC Terrain continues  the tradition of a small SUV that pulls together awesome technology and exceptional performance with top-notch safety features and standout elegance.

A rear-vision camera, 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, and a stability control system enable drivers to remain in charge at all times. The 3.6L V6 engine, capable of hitting 0-60 in 6.7 seconds, amounts to magnificent power beneath the hood, tied to the driver through a leather-wrapped steering wheel. All of this comes with the handling dynamics of a much smaller vehicle and the aesthetic appearance of a luxury SUV.

OnStar service and color touchscreen mapping means no driver has to worry about getting where he or she wants to go. IntelliLink allows for voice-activated audio streaming through a radio app, and includes iPod support and SiriusXM stereo as well as hands-free dialing. But the Terrain‘s numerous convenience-enhancing features don’t stop there; the universal garage door opener allows access to any radio frequency-controllable device. No more worries about misplaced garage door remotes.

In motion, or idling, the Terrain’s safety features ensure accidents never happen. Side Blind Zone and Rear Cross Traffic Alert are standard on every Terrain. Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning contribute another layer of driver security that comes in handy on the road. Programmable power liftgate allows for prior designation of opening height, so gate never lifts higher than any given clearance. Electronic obstacle detection stops and reverses, preventing benders. Liftgate operates at the touch of a button. And no worries about accidentally losing keys, or locking them inside the Terrain: accompanying OnStar service includes Remote Door Unlock.

The 2013 Terrain remains as classy and practical as its forerunners, with a spacious interior accented by wood-trim and leather, exterior satin-chrome accents and 19” wheels, rear fascias, and a dressed-up-but-rugged demeanor. The fully independent suspension makes for the kind of smooth, premium ride associated with luxury.  Check it out for yourself at Wilson County Motors!
