2014 Chevrolet Spark vs. 2014 Scion xD Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Spark offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Scion xD. The Chevrolet Spark will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Scion xD.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Spark as you will with the Scion xD, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Spark will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Scion xD. 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 xD.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Spark is much slimmer than the Scion xD, 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 Scion xD.

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

Handling
The Chevrolet Spark has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Scion xD, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Spark is significantly less powerful than the Scion xD. 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 Scion xD, making the Scion xD the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Chevrolet Spark has less cargo capacity than the Scion xD, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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