2015 Chevrolet Spark vs. 2014 Scion iQ 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 Scion iQ. The Chevrolet Spark will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Scion iQ.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Spark will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Scion iQ, 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 Scion iQ. 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Scion iQ.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Spark is much slimmer than the Scion iQ, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Chevrolet Spark, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Scion iQ.

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

Handling
The Chevrolet Spark has a significantly larger turning radius than the Scion iQ, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Spark and the Scion iQ. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Chevrolet Spark will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Scion iQ.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Spark comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Scion iQ.
