The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.2
4.8
4.0
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. The 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage is the most minimal four-seat car you can buy; with small cars lagging in sales, you can do better for little more money.
