2015 Chevrolet Spark vs. 2014 Honda CR-Z Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Spark will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-Z.

Convenience
The Honda CR-Z requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Chevrolet Spark, making it more convenient to drive.

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). Based on MSRP, the Chevrolet Spark is clearly a better financial choice over the Honda CR-Z. 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 Spark and the Honda CR-Z have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Spark is much slimmer than the Honda CR-Z, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Chevrolet Spark, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Honda CR-Z.

Drivetrain
The Chevrolet Spark has much less torque than the Honda CR-Z, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Chevrolet Spark has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Honda CR-Z, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Spark is significantly less powerful than the Honda CR-Z. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The Chevrolet Spark offers greater seating capacity than the Honda CR-Z, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Chevrolet Spark has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Honda CR-Z.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Spark comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda CR-Z.
