THREE WAYS TO GET A SPARK
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.
