When choosing a car for commuting, it’s important to consider more than just fuel economy. While that aspect may be one of the most important factors to take into account, there are other things that make a car worth driving to and from work on a daily basis.
Value, safety, enjoyment, and comfort are just a few of the other aspects to keep in mind when choosing a commuter car. The 2015 Chevy Spark outdoes the competition in all of the above categories, making it the obvious choice for commuters and city-dwellers alike.
Fuel economy is important, whether you are driving long distances, or sticking close to home. The Spark makes saving money at the pump a no-brainer.
With an EPA-estimated 31 miles per gallon in the city, and a whopping 39 MPG on the highway, the Spark outperforms other gas-powered subcompact cars like the Hyundai Veloster that maxes out at 35 MPG highway. The Fiat 500 is another subcompact car that may beat out the Spark on highway MPG by 1 extra mile per gallon, but with a starting MSRP of $16,745 and a smaller cabin, the Italian import doesn’t stand a chance against the American-made Chevrolet Spark.
One of the toughest aspects of city living, is parking. The Spark is made to fit into those tight parking spaces that no other car would dare consider. For a subcompact car, the Spark impresses with 86.3 cubic feet of passenger room, making for a roomy and comfortable cabin no matter the distance.
When it comes to choosing a vehicle that can pack in people, cargo, and get maximum miles per gallon - the Chevy Spark is the obvious winner.
