2017 Chevrolet Spark vs. 2017 smart fortwo Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Spark and the smart fortwo in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Spark as you will with the smart fortwo, 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). Whether you pick the Chevrolet Spark or the smart fortwo, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Chevrolet Spark is much higher than that for the smart fortwo.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Spark is much slimmer than the smart fortwo, 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 smart fortwo.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Spark is somewhat more powerful than the smart fortwo.

Utility
The Chevrolet Spark offers greater seating capacity than the smart fortwo, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Chevrolet Spark will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the smart fortwo.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Spark is not as nearly as extensive as that of the smart fortwo.
