The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Chevrolet Spark can actually seat four adults and manage frugal fuel economy; it's best of the minicars. 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.
