The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

3.8
5.4

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2019 Chevrolet Spark makes a great urban minicar, but its appeal is limited. The 2018 Smart ForTwo, now sold only as an electric vehicle, remains the easiest car in the U.S. to park on crowded streets—and low battery range will keep it mostly urban anyway.
