If you’re in the market for an affordable subcompact car that delivers both safety and performance, then perhaps it’s time to consider the 2015 Chevrolet Spark hatchback. Boasting a spacious interior despite its small size as well as some of today’s top automotive technology, the Spark offers a great value without skimping on features and functionality. Take a moment to see how it fares when pitted head-to-head against the 2015 Fiat 500, and then make your way from Cincinnati to experience the Spark in person at Tom Gill Chevrolet, located at 7830 Commerce Drive in Florence, Kentucky.

Starting Price

Chances are if you’re looking for a subcompact hatchback, then affordability is toward the top of your considerations. In this category, the Spark is an obvious choice:

  • 2015 Chevrolet Spark Price: MSRP from $12,270
  • 2015 Fiat 500: MSRP from $16,845

Interior Dimensions

Even adults will find themselves comfortable inside the 2015 Chevrolet Spark, though its diminutive size may lead you to believe otherwise. Its passenger space proves larger than others in the subcompact segment, while dedicated cargo space measures at an accommodating 31.2 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded down. Compare this to the 2015 Fiat 500’s cargo volume, which hits 30.2 cubic feet when you drop the seatbacks, and it’s clear the Chevy Spark has again edged out the competition.

Powertrain Warranty

When making a car purchase, ensuring that it is covered by an extensive warranty is key to its longevity. In this respect, the 2015 Chevrolet Spark again tops the 2015 Fiat 500, as it comes backed by a five-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. The Fiat 500, on the other hand, is covered by a less extensive four-year/50,000-mile powertrain warranty.

Safety Features

Safety is essential no matter what type of car you’re looking for, and the 2015 Chevrolet Spark displays its dedication to protecting its passengers. With its segment-leading score of “Acceptable” from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s small-impact frontal-offset test and the OnStar telematics system featuring automatic crash notification and on-demand roadside assistance, the Chevy Spark has established itself as quite a safe subcompact.

Meanwhile, the 2015 Fiat 500 has struggled. It earned the lowest possible rating of “Poor” in the same small-overlap frontal-offset test, and has little to offer in terms of advanced safety features.

High-Tech Features

The 2015 Chevrolet Spark is a vehicle geared toward the future, and nothing proves that more than the 4G LTE Wi-Fi service offered through the OnStar system. Converting the Spark into an Internet hotspot, OnStar allows up to seven devices to connect, stream, and chat, so you won’t have to drain your data plan. The 2015 Fiat 500 offers no Internet connectivity whatsoever.
