The 2013 Chevrolet Spark, the smallest car ever to wear the bowtie badge, now has an official price. The sub-Sonic minicar will start at $12,955 including destination.

The Spark will be offered in three trim levels, with the entry-level model being the Spark LS. Unlike the base versions of some of its competitors, the LS isn't a complete stripper, coming standard with A/C, power windows, 15-inch alloy wheels, an auxiliary input jack and Onstar. 10 airbags are also fitted as standard.

The mid-grade 1LT trim, priced at $14,495, adds a seven-inch color touchscreen for the audio system with Chevrolet MyLink, Bluetooth connectivity, steering wheel audio controls, a USB port and Sirius XM Radio. Also included are power door locks with remote keyless entry, a theft deterrent system, outside power mirrors, floor mats, visor mirrors and cruise control.

The top-spec 2LT commands $15,795 and dresses up the exterior with sport fascias front and rear, additional chrome trim and unique 15-inch wheels. Leatherette upholstery, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and fog lamps are also included.

All Sparks are fitted with an 85 horsepower 1.2-liter four-cylinder, which comes with a standard five-speed manual transmission. Clutch-averse buyers can pony up an additional $925 for the optional four-speed automatic.

Chevrolet has yet to specify an on-sale date for either the normal Spark or its all-electric variant, the Spark EV.
