2017 Chevrolet Spark vs. 2016 Kia Forte Koup Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Forte Koup than the Chevrolet Spark, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Spark and the Kia Forte Koup in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Kia Forte Koup you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Spark, due to its tank size and 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). Based on MSRP, the Chevrolet Spark is clearly a better financial choice over the Kia Forte Koup. 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 Kia Forte Koup have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Spark is much slimmer than the Kia Forte Koup, 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 Kia Forte Koup.

Drivetrain
The Chevrolet Spark has much less torque than the Kia Forte Koup, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Chevrolet Spark has a smaller turning radius than the Kia Forte Koup, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
