The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Chevrolet Spark can actually seat four adults and manage frugal fuel economy; it's best of the minicars. The 2015 MINI Cooper hardtop is a slightly larger car with all the virtues of earlier MINIs and fewer drawbacks; it's nicer and quieter inside, the base car is closer to the Cooper S in performance, and it retains the rollerskate handling and cheeky character it's always had.
