The 2017 Chevy Spark and the 2017 Toyota Yaris both offer Norwalk and Indianola, IA drivers economical engines and abundant standard safety features. This makes them good choices for those seeking basic transportation at an affordable price. For drivers who want something more than just the basics, however, the Spark stands head and shoulders above the Toyota in every way that matters. But you don’t have to take our word for it— check out our comparison of these two economical compact cars, then drop into Gregg Young Chevrolet to see what an impressive buy the little Chevy is.

Safety Features

Sub-compact cars have a reputation for being less safe than their larger counterparts. Not so with the 2017 Chevy Spark. The Spark offers drivers basic features like height-adjustable safety belts as well as advanced features like Rear Park Assist to help drivers avoid obstacles when backing and parking. This makes maneuvering in tight spaces easier and reduces the likelihood of a collision with unseen hazards. The Yaris doesn’t offer adjustable belts, making it less likely passengers will use the equipment properly, and there is no option for an advanced parking assist system.

Advanced Technology

The Chevy Spark, like all vehicles in the Chevrolet fleet, offers standard access to the innovative OnStar concierge system. Not only does OnStar give drivers access to reservations, directions, and other services, but, when properly equipped, the vehicle can also notify emergency personnel if the vehicle is ever in an accident. Passengers can even take advantage of the available Wi-Fi hotspot for access to content on the go. Toyota doesn’t offer advanced connectivity or a GPS response system. In the event of an accident, Yaris drivers will have to find help on their own.

The Chevy also offers drivers access to impressive creature comforts such as automatic headlights, remote power mirrors, factory integrated smartphone access, and options like passive entry with pushbutton start, heated seats, and heated side mirrors. The Yaris does not.
