The most likely competitors to the 2013 Chevrolet Spark may be the three-door Fiat 500 and MINI Cooper, though it undercuts them on price and has more interior room.
The MINI especially is more fun to drive, but the Spark's dashboard and smartphone integration is light-years ahead of the MINI's messy dials and switches.
The Mitsubishi i is the only other five-door hatchback, and it too has good interior space for its dimensions, but it's only available as an electric car with a low 62-mile range, and it sells only in small volumes.
Finally, a pair of two-seaters also count as minicars: the Smart ForTwo is now old and still unpleasant to drive, while the Scion iQ can hold three people--barely--and is a smarter, updated version of the same concept.
