Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Yaris 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 Toyota Yaris in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Toyota Yaris 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Spark will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Yaris. 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 Toyota Yaris have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Spark is much slimmer than the Toyota Yaris, 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 Toyota Yaris.

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

Handling
The Chevrolet Spark has a larger turning radius than the Toyota Yaris, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Chevrolet Spark has less horsepower than the Toyota Yaris, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
The Chevrolet Spark has less seating than the Toyota Yaris, making the Toyota Yaris the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Spark comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Yaris.
