The 2016 Honda CR-Z and the 2016 Chevrolet Spark are both stylish, fun little hatchbacks. Both provide impressive efficiency paired with up-to-date features and dynamic style. Take a look at how they stack up side by side for your driving needs here in the Elgin and Crystal Lake, IL area, and we think that your choice should be easy.

Performance and Efficiency

In terms of performance and efficiency, the 2016 Chevrolet Spark comes standard with a 1.4L four-cylinder engine that cranks out 98 hp and 94 lb-ft of torque. The Spark with continuously variable transmission is rated at 31 mpg city/41 mpg highway/35 mpg combined based on EPA estimates.

The 2016 Honda CR-Z gets a hybrid powertrain that combines the forces of a 1.5L four-cylinder and an electric motor for up to 130 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque. The Honda CR-Z earns an EPA estimate of 36 mpg city/39 mpg highway/37 mpg combined* with continuously variable transmission.

It’s easy to see that the CR-Z not only makes more power, but it also provides superior fuel economy according to EPA estimates.

Comfort and Convenience

These days, small cars are much better equipped than they were just a few years ago. Of course, there are some differences between these two cars. For example, the 2016 Honda CR-Z gets standard features, including:

  • Automatic climate control
  • Power windows and locks
  • Cruise control
  • An adjustable steering wheel
  • A CD player
  • An MP3 player
  • A stereo anti-theft system
  • A remote keyless entry system
  • Steering wheel mounted audio controls

Unfortunately, none of those features come standard on the 2016 Chevrolet Spark. Plus, the CR-Z offers more cargo volume, and more front leg room and hip room.
