2019 Chevrolet Spark vs. Its Competition

2019 Chevrolet Spark
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

Truthfully, the 2019 Chevrolet Spark only has one direct rival: the dour Mitsubishi Mirage, which makes the Chevy feel like a premium luxury car.

City buyers who don’t need four doors might cross-shop the cheeky, but dated Fiat 500, or the electric-only Smart Fortwo, but neither offers the relative utility of the Spark.

The larger Ford Fiesta and Mini Cooper have good driving dynamics and aren’t that much more difficult to park.

Quick Specs
The 2019 Chevrolet Spark makes a great urban minicar, but its appeal is limited.
The 2019 Chevrolet Sonic shows its age but remains a good choice for an inexpensive car with surprising technology.
The 2019 Mini Cooper makes no apologies for its heritage, packing charm and fun into a pint-size package.
The 2019 Fiat 500 is appealing for those who value personality above all else, but it sports some glaring flaws.
The 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage is the most minimal four-seat car you can buy; with small cars lagging in sales, you can do better for little more money.
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.
