2017 Chevrolet Spark vs. 2017 Ford Fiesta
2017 Chevrolet Spark
2017 Ford Fiesta
Not all subcompact cars have what it takes to keep their drivers happy, and the folks around Norwalk and West Des Moines should consider all of their options carefully before they make a final decision. The 2017 Ford Fiesta and the 2017 Chevrolet Spark have both been popular choices so far this year, but any detailed comparison of these two models easily demonstrates the Spark’s superiority. The baseline trim of the Fiesta is priced affordably at $13,600 MSRP, but the Spark LS Manual, at $13,000 MSRP, is even cheaper! In spite of its low price, the Spark outperforms its competitor on numerous fronts. Read on for the details of why we think the Spark offers better fuel economy and more standard features than the Fiesta, then come see the Chevy in person at Gregg Young Chevrolet today!
Engine Performance and Fuel Economy
Standard Features That Make Life Easier
These days, even the smallest, cheapest vehicles come loaded with exciting standard features, but in terms of standard equipment, the 2017 Chevrolet Spark steals the show. Both the Spark and the Fiesta come equipped with three sets of airbags, stability control systems, tire pressure monitoring systems, and traction control, but only the Spark comes equipped with a Rear Vision camera. This camera, available right from the start in the Spark’s baseline LS Manual trim, makes it easy to get around in tight spaces. This difference isn’t limited to the lower level trims; not even the most expensive Ford Fiestas offer this sort of convenience.
It’s also important to note that the Spark’s baseline trim offers Brake Assist technology and Automatic, Auto-Off Headlights, neither of which is available on the comparable Fiesta S. With these features under your control, you’ll be much better equipped to respond to surprises on the road. Moreover, it’s easier to load up and transport large, bulky goods in the 2017 Chevrolet Spark than it is in the 2017 Ford Fiesta. As a sedan, the Ford Fiesta S provides a maximum of just 12.8 cu. ft. of cargo space, and as a hatchback, the Fiesta S can provide up to 25.4 cu. ft. of the same. However, neither model is able to best the Spark’s 27.2 cu. ft. of total cargo volume! Spark drivers who want to access this volume simply have to take advantage of their vehicle’s Flat-Folding Rear Seating.
Drivers will also be happy to hear that the 2017 Chevrolet Spark comes standard with three free months of the OnStar Guidance Plan. This package is comprised of a wide variety of protections and conveniences, including OnStar Automatic Crash Response, OnStar Turn-by-Turn Navigation, OnStar Hands Free Calling, and OnStar Vehicle Diagnostics among many more features. Even if you decide not to renew your Guidance Plan after three months’ time, you’ll still enjoy the benefits of the OnStar Basic Plan. Drivers who choose the Spark over the Fiesta will be able to take advantage of the Basic Plan, free of charge, for five years!
