Pros: City-friendly minicar dimensions, maneuverability, connectivity/infotainment features
Cons: High noise levels, road manners during highway driving, limited cargo versatility
CG Says: The Spark proves to be more than the sum of its unexceptional parts. While it isn’t great on the highway due to engine and traffic noise, Spark excels in the city because of its satisfying low-speed manners, tight turning radius, and diminutive, parking-spot-friendly dimensions. Spark shines when compared to other minicars such as the Scion iQ and Smart ForTwo. However, we expect that most shoppers will be more satisfied with a larger, more substantial subcompact such as Chevy’s own Sonic.
