Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Civic than the Chevrolet Spark, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Spark and the Honda Civic in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Honda Civic you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Spark, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). Based on MSRP, the Chevrolet Spark is clearly a better financial choice over the Honda Civic. 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 and the Honda Civic have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Spark is much slimmer than the Honda Civic, 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 Honda Civic.

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

Handling
The Chevrolet Spark has a smaller turning radius than the Honda Civic, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Spark is significantly less powerful than the Honda Civic. 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 Honda Civic, making the Honda Civic the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Chevrolet Spark has significantly less cargo room than the Honda Civic, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Spark comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda Civic.
