Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Spark than the MINI MINI-Hardtop. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, the Chevrolet Spark may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the MINI MINI-Hardtop 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 MINI MINI-Hardtop. 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 MINI MINI-Hardtop.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Spark is much slimmer than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, 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 MINI MINI-Hardtop.

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

Handling
The Chevrolet Spark has a smaller turning radius than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, 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 MINI MINI-Hardtop. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Spark and the MINI MINI-Hardtop. The Chevrolet Spark has significantly less cargo room than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Spark is not as nearly as extensive as that of the MINI MINI-Hardtop.
