The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.2
6.3
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 Mini Cooper is an icon made better by nimble handling and infinite customization.
