2014 Chevrolet Spark vs. 2014 Nissan Cube Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Cube than the Chevrolet Spark, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Nissan Cube will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Spark.

Convenience
The Nissan Cube 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 Nissan Cube. 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 Nissan Cube have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Spark is much slimmer than the Nissan Cube, 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 Nissan Cube.

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

Handling
The Chevrolet Spark has a smaller turning radius than the Nissan Cube, 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 Nissan Cube. 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 Nissan Cube, making the Nissan Cube the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Chevrolet Spark has significantly less cargo room than the Nissan Cube, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
