Of course, the Spark isn't some race-ready speedster (it boasts just 84 horses). But, the power pushed out of the small engine is ample for hitting city hills and even short highway bursts. We rolled on the interstate, and we felt comfortable. So, given most of the Spark's intended driving is urban, the prospect of a quick road trip isn't out of reach. Plus, road trips put more eyes on the car, thus you make more smiles…i.e. make the world a better place.
