2015 Chevrolet Spark vs. 2015 Kia Forte Koup Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Spark offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Kia Forte Koup with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Kia Forte Koup, the Chevrolet Spark may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

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
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Spark is significantly less powerful than the Kia Forte Koup. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The Chevrolet Spark has less seating than the Kia Forte Koup, making the Kia Forte Koup the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Chevrolet Spark will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Kia Forte Koup.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Spark is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Forte Koup.
