2016 Chevrolet Spark vs. 2016 MINI MINI-Hardtop 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 MINI MINI-Hardtop. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Spark, drivers may find the MINI MINI-Hardtop a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Spark as you will with the MINI MINI-Hardtop, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 MINI MINI-Hardtop. 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 MINI MINI-Hardtop have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Spark is much slimmer than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, 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 MINI MINI-Hardtop.

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

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

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Spark and the MINI MINI-Hardtop. The Chevrolet Spark has significantly less cargo room than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Spark is not as nearly as extensive as that of the MINI MINI-Hardtop.
