The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
6.6
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 Mitsubishi i-MiEV is nimble around town, can carry four adults, and has the lowest price tag of any electric car sold in the U.S.--but both its range and performance are only marginal at highway speeds.
