Minicars haven't been at all significant or successful in the U.S. market, yet several carmakers think that there is a future for this size car in American cities and urban centers. At about 14 inches shorter than the Chevrolet Sonic subcompact (in hatchback form), the Spark measures up as longer than a Smart Fortwo or Fiat 500, or about the same length as a base Mini Cooper. Fuel economy should be excellent (especially in city driving), parking and maneuverability will be even easier than in nearly any other vehicle and yet the Spark's four seats should give it more flexibility versus some other minicars.

A vehicle’s warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer’s lot, and it’s important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission.
