Pros: City-friendly minicar dimensions for easy parking and maneuverability,up-to-date connectivity and infotainment features
Cons: High noise levels-even for the class, unsettled road manners during highway driving, relatively 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, and sensativity to wind gusts, the 2014 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.e sure to test drive the Spark in the city and on the highway before committing to make a purchase.
