The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.4
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Chevrolet Spark is the brand's first minicar, and its five doors open to an interior that seats four adults capably if not luxuriously. It's neither the fastest nor the most fuel-efficient small car, but in tight city streets, it's easy to drive and park--and the smartphone navigation app shows the future of in-car infotainment. Avoid the automatic version, though; it's tragically slow. Want a practical electric car for commuting, or as a second car? The 2012 Mitsubishi i is the simply the most affordable and efficient pick.
