2013 Chevrolet Spark vs. 2013 Smart fortwo

2013 Chevy Spark 900 pxThe 2013 Chevrolet Spark is the latest model update to Chevy’s city car, which has been around since 1998, and currently available in Elgin at Biggers Chevrolet. Both the 2013 Smart Fortwo and the 2013 Chevrolet Spark start at just over $12,000 and have many similarities, but the Spark is going to offer the better value in the long run.

Car Dimensions

Obviously, the goal of a car like the Chevy Spark or the Smart Fortwo is to be small, however, you still want to be comfortable while driving. When comparing the total dimensions of both vehicles, they are practically the same: the width of the Spark is 62.9 inches and the Fortwo is 61.4 while the height is 61 and 60.7, respectively.

With that said, the 2013 Chevy is going to offer more room to breathe. There’s about 3 inches more hip room, 2.7 inches more front shoulder room, and about an inch more leg room. The 2013 Smart car is a tighter fit overall, with a max capacity of only two, compare to the efficient Chevy’s four.

Interior Features

Likewise, the 2013 Spark has more standard features than the 2013 Smart Fortwo. The Smart city car is very bare bones to the point where it doesn’t even come with power windows or floor mats! You’ll find this on the Spark, in addition to handsfree Bluetooth connectivity, anti-theft protection, and mp3 playback. Satellite radio is also an option, and totally unavailable with the Smart Fortwo. For two vehicles at such similar prices, the 2013 Chevrolet Spark is the clear winner.
