The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.2
5.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Smart ForTwo is the easiest car to park that you can buy, but if you have other needs, four-seat cars can offer more cabin space, equal fuel economy, and more flexibility. The 2017 Chevrolet Spark is one of the best tiny cars you can buy in America, with its laudable array of active-safety systems.
