The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Chevrolet Spark is an all-new version of the minicar that actually seats four adults; its more "adult" styling, higher-quality materials, and optional active-safety features may make it the best of the tiny cars. The 2016 Fiat 500e can be viewed as the best 500 minicar, if you can live with a real-world range of 80 miles; its power is smoother, its handling is more balanced, and it's cheap to buy and run—but you can only get it in California and Oregon.
