The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
7.0
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. If you're willing to go small, the 2014 Fiat 500 is one of the most stylish ways to do it—and the Abarth and Turbo add just the right 'edge' to the personality. The 2014 MINI Cooper is a fun, smart, and practical way to get around, without giving up its sporty, quirky side.
