Chevrolet is usually a brand we in the UK associate with American motoring. However, since GM motors bought an ailing Daewoo in 2005, the brand has begun to be seen on UK Streets. Targeting the budget end of the market, Chevrolet built cars that were designed offer no-frills motoring. The brand failed to live up to GM’s expectations. Consequently, last year, GM pulled the Chevrolet brand out of Europe. There are however many cars still on the used market, with the range offering everything from a small city car to a huge 7-seater MPV. Whilst the cars throughout the range aren’t the best to drive, or to look at, they do represent exceptionally good value.
At the entry level of the Chevrolet range is the Spark. Loosely based around the Daewoo Matiz, the Spark is definitely a much needed improvement. Despite this, it can’t compete with any of the market leaders. Fitted out with small engines, and with a tall body, the driving experience is somewhat like a rough, underpowered ferry crossing. Emission wise the engines also perform pretty poorly, with cars three classes above performing better. The Spark is at least, not bad looking. Some may even find the styling attractive - it’s certainly unique. Used Sparks also go for very very low prices due to high levels of depreciation. So if it’s a nearly new car you’re after, without spending a lot, the Spark could be a decent option.
If you’re after a small sized SUV, Chevrolet offers buyers the Trax. Whilst the styling is conservative, and perhaps a little dated, it’s at least not ugly. The engines provided are also reasonably efficient, with the diesel model averaging 62.7mpg. Like the Spark though, the engines are, shall we say, not so good for the planet. Whilst this may not concern some, it will leave you spending a lot of money on vehicle tax. The diesel engine is also incredibly noisy for today’s market. Whilst 10 years ago it may have been acceptable, most customers aren’t going to put up with it today. The main positive with the Trax is that it’s at least quite spacious. Add in the exceptionally cheap used models you can pick up, and if you don’t mind a car that’s a bit rough around the edges, you can get yourself a bargain.
For those with a need for space, Chevrolet offers a 7 seater behemoth- the Orlando. When it comes to value for money, the Orlando actually scores pretty highly. There’s a lot of space inside the Orlando, and if you’ve got a big family, you’re going to appreciate it. Whilst the materials may not be of the best quality, at least the Orlando is cheap. For second hand buyers you’re going to get a lot of car for very little money, and the diesel engine in the Orlando is surprisingly not that bad. In terms of value for money, you can’t really beat a used Chevrolet.
