2015 Chevrolet Spark

Pros: City-friendly minicar dimensions, maneuverability, connectivity/infotainment features

Cons: High noise levels, road manners during highway driving, limited cargo versatility

CG Says: For 2015, the Chevrolet Spark gets 4G LTE Internet connectivity with a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot for the OnStar communication system. The Spark proves to be more than the sum of its 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 also 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.
