August 2, 2012 at 09:18

As small hatchbacks are becoming more and more popular in Europe and in America as well as in the rest of the word because of their compact sizes and also good fuel economy and fairly good driving experience, they have became a good alternative in the time of crises. Therefore today we will see the fight between the 2013 Chevrolet Spark that will clash in the fight with the 2013 Ford Fiesta. Let’s see what these two models can bring to us.

If we start with price we can see that these two models are fairly affordable, as the new base models are priced below $15,000. For new Ford Fiesta of the year 2013 you will have to pay $14,200, while Chevrolet Spark will be a little cheaper and will cost $12,245. Now let’s see what these two cars have on the inner side. For $2,000 more you can get the 1.6L 120hp I4 with Ford Fiesta, while Chevrolet is equipped with just 1.2L 85hp I4. For some drivers such a small amount of horsepower is even insulting. Though, both of these cars are very good in fuel economy, as they both can go as far as 30 mpg in the city and 39 on the highway.

So in the end we have to say that even with a bigger price, but Ford Fiesta wins the fight due to the greater power offered.
