Our lead-foot testing in a manual transmission car, in the burbs and the city, resulted in a tick over 32 mpg.

The 2014 Chevrolet Spark, at least in gasoline form, is nothing spacial from a fuel-efficiency standpoint. And for a car this small, a lot of shoppers might frankly be shocked to find out that it managed just 30 or 31 mpg in the city and 39 on the highway.

Versus last year's four-speed automatic transmission, the new CVT automatic is an improvement--rated at 2 mpg better.

The 2014 Chevrolet Spark EV, on the other hand, is the most efficient vehicle available in the U.S. market, according to GM (and in terms of miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe). Its 21-kWh battery pack helps provide an EPA-rated 82 miles of driving range—and based on what we saw on this first drive, that will be quite easy to achieve.

 

Conclusion

Gasoline versions of the Spark still don't hit 40 mpg on the highway -- yet the Spark EV is the most efficient car on the market.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
