The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.3
5.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Mini Cooper is an icon made better by nimble handling and infinite customization. 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.
