Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Spark offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Honda Civic Si with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Chevrolet Spark will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic Si.

Convenience
With the Honda Civic Si 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 Si. 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 Honda Civic Si.

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

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

Handling
The Chevrolet Spark has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Honda Civic Si, 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 Honda Civic Si. 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 Si, making the Honda Civic Si the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Chevrolet Spark will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Honda Civic Si.
