The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
6.6
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 Scion iQ is made for city dwellers who have trouble finding parking; others will see it as a fashion accessory or a vehicular oddity.
