2017 Chevrolet Sonic vs. 2017 Chevrolet Spark Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Sonic than the Chevrolet Spark. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Sonic and the Chevrolet Spark in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Sonic you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Spark, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Chevrolet Sonic will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Chevrolet Spark, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Sonic and the Chevrolet Spark have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Sonic is much wider than the Chevrolet Spark, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chevrolet Sonic, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Chevrolet Spark.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Sonic does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Chevrolet Spark.

Handling
The Chevrolet Sonic has a larger turning radius than the Chevrolet Spark, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Sonic has a much more powerful engine than the Chevrolet Spark. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Chevrolet Sonic offers greater seating capacity than the Chevrolet Spark, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Chevrolet Sonic will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Chevrolet Spark.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Sonic comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Chevrolet Spark.
