2020 Chevrolet Spark vs. Its Competition

2020 Chevrolet Spark

The Spark is one of few minicars on the market today, a reflection of relatively low fuel prices that have diminished the appeal of the tiny cars.

The Mitsubishi Mirage comes in sedan and hatchback variants, all of which lack charm and polish.

The Fiat 500 is full of style and personality, but it shows its age may be of limited appeal to drivers looking for four doors.

The slightly larger Nissan Versa and Toyota Yaris are inexpensive, good choices.

The Yaris in particular is a hoot to drive, while the redesigned Versa has class-up looks.

If you’re stuck on a Chevy, the automaker’s Sonic doesn’t usually cost much more by the time inevitable dealer discounts are applied.
