Chevrolet Spark Named to Cheapest Cars of 2020 List

2020 Chevrolet Spark | Beloit, WI

If you are shopping on a budget, you might think that a brand-new car is out of your price range. However, the 2020 Chevrolet Spark comes with a plethora of great features without breaking the break. That’s why it made Kelley Blue Book’s list of the 10 Cheapest Cars of 2020.

The Spark made the list for not only having a low starting price but also for its five-year cost to own. Its maintenance requirements, expected depreciation and fuel costs during the first few years of ownership ensure that the car is an affordable option over time.

Perhaps one of the most impressive aspects of the Spark is its efficient powertrain. The 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine reaches an EPA-estimated 30 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway, helping you save money at the pump.*

Despite its inexpensive price, the Spark is a fantastic car for commuting to and from work. The car is available in a broad spectrum of color choices, including bold options, like Red Hot and Orange Burst, which make it stand out on the street. Plus, the nimble car is easy to maneuver around tight city streets so you can have smooth rides.

If you’re interested in making the 2020 Chevrolet Spark your next daily driver or learning more about it, call us at Bud Weiser Motors in Beloit, Wisconsin.

The First-Ever Mid-Engine Corvette Auctioned for $3 Million

2020 Chevrolet Corvette | Beloit WI

The announcement that the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray would adopt a mid-engine architecture was beyond exciting for car enthusiasts and collectors. That excitement reached new heights at the Barrett-Jackson car auction that took place in Scottsdale, Arizona, where the first-ever mid-engine Corvette to leave the production line was purchased for a staggering $3 million.

The proud owner of the all-new sports car is Rick Hendrick, a former NASCAR driver, current NASCAR team owner and avid car collector. In addition to leaving the auction house with a piece of history, the hefty sum he put down will go to a phenomenal cause. The money General Motors collected in exchange for the Corvette will go to the Detroit Children’s Fund, a non-profit that works to better the quality of Detroit’s schools.

The auction house previously sold a 1967 L88 Corvette Coupe for a total of $3.85 million in 2014. Even though the classic 1967 model managed to edge out the revolutionary 2020 model, it’s still impressive that the newest iteration of the Corvette Stingray was sold for $3 million, showing that the redesigned model has garnered noteworthy attention for its style and power.

If the auction is any indication, the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will be a popular option once it reaches dealerships. If you want to try your hand at the all-new model when it finally is released or want to check out the 2019 model, visit us here at Bud Weiser Motors.
