Expert Quotes:

Four stars overall; four stars frontal; five stars side impact Top Safety Pick
NHTSA

'Good,' frontal, side, and rear impact; 'good,' roof strength; 'acceptable,' small overlap frontal
IIHS




The 2014 Chevrolet Spark might just be one of the safest minicar picks, as it has no serious blemishes, no poor grades on its report card.

The Spark includes ten airbags. Electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes are also part of a good list of standard safety equipment.

The federal government has given the Spark a four-star Overall rating, with four stars in the frontal category and five stars for side impact—including an impressive five stars in the federal side pole test.

Ratings are also in from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), and they're quite good--with top 'good' results for frontal, side, and rear tests, as well as the roof strength test. And in the tough new small overlap frontal test, the Spark earned a second-best 'acceptable' rating; in fact it was the only one to achieve a passing grade in that test in a recent IIHS roundup of vehicles from the minicar segment.

Outward vision is good, too, despite the lack of a rear camera system.

Conclusion

The Chevrolet Spark has better safety scores than most other minicars—and it's an IIHS Top Safety Pick.

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.
