2014 Chevrolet Spark vs. 2014 Mazda Mazda2 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 Spark than the Mazda Mazda2. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Spark and the Mazda Mazda2 in the front seats.

Convenience
The Mazda Mazda2 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Spark will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mazda Mazda2. 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 Mazda Mazda2 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Spark is much slimmer than the Mazda Mazda2, 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 Mazda Mazda2.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Chevrolet Spark doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mazda Mazda2.

Handling
The Chevrolet Spark has about the same turning radius as the Mazda Mazda2, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Chevrolet Spark has less horsepower than the Mazda Mazda2, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
The Chevrolet Spark has less seating than the Mazda Mazda2, making the Mazda Mazda2 the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Chevrolet Spark has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mazda Mazda2.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Spark comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mazda Mazda2.
