2016 Toyota Prius c vs 2016 Chevrolet Spark
Shopping for a new vehicle can be a time-consuming and frustrating task. With so many options on the market, it can be hard to figure out which one is the right choice. And once you narrow it down, deciding which features outweigh others and which vehicle ultimately comes out on top can be a tricky venture.
That’s why it’s always nice when one vehicle clearly comes out ahead of the other. This is especially true in the crowded hybrid class. As fuel efficiency wars wage on and litre per 100km numbers get closer and closer together, it can seem like that is no longer a viable option for making your decision. But then there are times when one hybrid’s fuel efficiency blows the other out of the water. And when that hybrid can back those numbers up with other advantages, car buying becomes that much easier. That turned out to be the case when we looked at the 2016 Toyota Pruis c vs the 2016 Chevrolet Spark.
2016 Toyota Prius c the Clear Winner
Fuel efficiency is always the first feature people look at when shopping for hybrids. More often than not, it seems like these numbers are getting closer together each model year. But that’s not always the case, as you can see from the above table. When matching up against the Chevrolet Spark, the 2016 Prius c is the clear winner in terms of fuel efficiency by using 3 less litres per 100km in the city and almost a litre less per 100km on the highway.
But the Prius c’s advantages don’t end there. Not only will you be spending less at the pump, you’ll have a lot more interior space for both passengers and cargo as well. The 2016 Prius c has 10.4 more cubic feet of space for passengers than the Spark while also holding a 6 cubic feet advantage in terms of cargo capacity.
That alone should prove the 2016 Toyota Prius c is the clear choice over the Chevrolet Spark. Add in what the table doesn’t show, namely the Prius c’s horsepower advantage, and you’ve got everything you need to make up your mind.
