2016 Chevrolet Spark vs. 2016 smart fortwo Review

Comparison Review

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

The Chevrolet Spark will require fewer stops at the gas station than the smart fortwo, making it more convenient to drive.

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 smart fortwo. 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.

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.

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

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

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.

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