The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.2
4.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Chevrolet Spark is a better minicar than competitors, but a larger subcompact or compact simply offers more—at a price that’s likely close. The 2018 Fiat 500 packs more punch this year, but it’s still a statement of style over some substance.
