JOLIET, Ill., Oct. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The demands of suburban and urban drivers are often dramtically different from one another. While those living on the outskirts of the city have no problem owning pick-up trucks and full-size SUVs, car shoppers who live and work in the city have to more seriously consider size and maneuverability as they frequently deal with narrow alleys, snug parking spaces, and bumper-to-bumper traffic.

Chevy answers the call of urban drivers by offering two of the most equipped and convenient vehicles in the subcompact and mid-size segments — the 2014 Chevy Spark and 2014 Chevy Cruze.

As the smallest car in the new Chevy lineup, the 2014 Chevy Spark packs a lot of quality into a small space.  Powered by a 1.2-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 84 horsepower and 83 pound-feet of torque, the Chevy's subcompact car has a composed ride and exceptional agility. Even when merging onto the freeway, the Spark offers enough energy to reach highway speeds. While the power numbers may not be eye-popping, the Cruze makes up for by achieving EPA-estimates of 31 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway. Although many drivers are drawn in by the Chevy Spark's creative color pallet, they purchase the subcompact car because of its well-equipped interior, 31 cubic feet of cargo space, and affordable price tag.

While the Spark's size and sensibility make it a strong option for urban drivers, the Chevy Cruze offers enhanced passenger space while maintaining a rather convenient size. With three engine options, including the new Chevy Cruze Turbo Diesel capable of achieving 46 mpg on the highway, Illinois car shoppers can find their ideal blend of power and efficiency in Chevy's mid-size sedan. In that same spirit of choice, the interior easily can be customized with feature groupings like the Technology Package and Driver Convenience Package.
