The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Chevrolet Spark enters the minicar fold with a space-efficient package and some of the best infotainment and connectivity technology in any affordable car; and while performance of the standard Spark is lackluster, the Spark EV breaks out as one of the best-performing, most efficient electric cars. Too bad the EV is offered on such a limited basis. The 2014 MINI Cooper is a fun, smart, and practical way to get around, without giving up its sporty, quirky side.
