I was real interested in the Spark, but was just too small, had to remove the rear seat cushions to go flat floor with rears folded down. Got real interested in the Sonic, more car for a little more money, could not make a decent deal with the dealer.

Looked at the KIA Soul loved it, bought it. I'm 6'4" and the higher roof of the KIA was a "God Send" for entry, exit, and head room.

Spark was 2400#, Sonic was 2800#, KIA was 2700#.

I thought sure you would get some takers on this thread. Here is one I started when I was interested, Chevy Spark as a Toad

For what it is worth the car was fun to drive, my concerns were it is narrow and somewhat tight that way, but it had good headroom, and legroom. Little tight for me to get in and out, and rear seat area was pretty scant as I mentioned before. Another plus was the really lightweight.

update I ended up finding a 2012 chev sonic 2200kms 1.8 auto so it can be towed 4 down, I really liked the spark just because of its size, but the sonic is more of a car , I would have waited till next year but I blew the motor on my daily driver old truck, but now when im ready to be a snow bird I have the towed, now ill start looking into the towbar.
