LOOK up the Chevrolet Spark and the first thing you will see is how many car ex­perts rate this lit­tle hatch.

At Car mag­a­zine, the Spark is now the “Bud­get Car” for both 2014 and 2015. Over in the U.S., the In­sur­ance In­sti­tute for High­way Safety last year listed the Spark as the only sub-com­pact car to have passed its small over­lap front crash test, which repli­cates what hap­pens when the front cor­ner of a ve­hi­cle col­lides with an ob­ject at 64 km/h.

And hav­ing driven the lively lit­tle 1,2-litre en­gine with two other hefty blokes on board, I think the Spark Cam­pus, which sells for R119 500, is not only a good buy, but an ex­cel­lent rental, and even bet­ter, it will make a fan­tas­tic win.

For a chance to win a Spark, you can buy as many raf­fle tick­ets as you like from the Msun­duzi Hospice at any of their pro­mo­tions — the next one is at the Hay­fields Mall this week­end.

The draw hap­pens only later this year, but you can mean­while rent a Spark from Key Group in Pi­eter­mar­itzburg for a R300 a day — 200 km in­cluded and the low­est rates per kilo­me­tre there­after.

Un­like other car rental com­pa­nies, Key’s price don’t go up if you are in a hurry for a set of wheels to make it to that ap­point­ment with, for ex­am­ple, the Msun­duzi Hospice in Pi­eter­mar­itzburg on their vol­un­teer day to­mor­row, from 10 am to 11.30 am for new vol­un­teers and from 3 pm to 4 pm for schools/ com­mu­nity ser­vice.

Wit­ness Wheels sup­port the Msun­duzi Hospice in its work and we in­vite all read­ers who can work with crafts; as­sist in the shops, help keep our gar­dens beau­ti­ful; pro­vide re­cep­tion or trans­port Hospice Day­care pa­tients — among other ac­tiv­i­ties — to at­tend the open days.

The open day takes place at 200 Zwartkop Road, Prest­bury, and tea will be served.

RSVP and in­quiries: 033 344 1560.
