The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.2
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 Smart ForTwo promises parking ease—and this time, maybe better fuel economy and handling.
