Comparison Review

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

With the Chevrolet Cruze you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Spark, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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). The Chevrolet Cruze will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Chevrolet Spark, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 Cruze carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Chevrolet Spark.

Since the Chevrolet Cruze is much wider than the Chevrolet Spark, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chevrolet Cruze, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Chevrolet Spark.

Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Cruze does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Chevrolet Spark.

When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Cruze has a much more powerful engine than the Chevrolet Spark. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

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

The Chevrolet Cruze comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Chevrolet Spark.
