The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Smart ForTwo promises parking ease—and this time, maybe better fuel economy and handling. The 2016 Chevrolet Spark is an all-new version of the minicar that actually seats four adults; its more "adult" styling, higher-quality materials, and optional active-safety features may make it the best of the tiny cars.
