Fuel Economy/Value

With its 4 extra city miles per gallon, it is no surprise that the 2013 Scion IQ has better fuel economy than the 2013 Chevy Spark. But how much will the IQ actually save you in gas? If you drive both cars an average of 15,000 miles annually, the 2013 Scion IQ will save you $42 more in gas than the Chevy Spark each year. But when it comes to value, the Chevy Spark is the clear winner. Yes, you would save $42 annually on gas with the Scion IQ, but because the Chevy Spark costs $410 less, you would have to drive the Scion 9.8 years before its savings in gas surpassed the Spark’s initial savings. Furthermore, the 2013 Chevy Spark’s greater fuel tank capacity will save you 3 trips to refill your tank each year. This added value exemplifies Chevy’s belief that you should spend less time and money filling up your gas tank and more time enjoying your vehicle on the open road.

Warranty Coverage

The 2013 Chevy Spark and Scion IQ both include 3-year/36,000-mile Bumper-to-Bumper Limited warranties. However, under every other warranty covered, the Chevy Spark outlasts the Scion IQ. Consider their PowerTrain Limited warranties… the 5-year/100,000-mile warranty included with the Chevy Spark will take you that extra mile… 40,000 extra miles, in fact!

In addition, the Chevy Spark and the Scion IQ both feature Roadside Assistance Programs. These programs feature the following services:

  • Lockout Service – You will be assisted when you accidentally lock your keys inside the vehicle.
  • Flat Tire Change – A spare will be installed for you.
  • Fuel Delivery – If you run out of gas, $5 worth of fuel will be delivered to get you back on the road.
  • Emergency Towing – Your car will be towed to its nearest dealer.
  • Jump-Starts – If you need your car jump-started, you will be assisted whether at home or on the road.

But again, the Chevy Spark’s warranty coverage here outlasts the Scion IQ… this time by 3 years and 64,000 miles! This far superior warranty coverage exemplifies Chevy’s reliability and dedication to you.

Summary

While the Scion IQ may have slightly better fuel economy, the 2013 Chevy Spark’s greater value and excellent warranty coverage make it the better vehicle in this side-by-side comparison and the better choice for smart car buyers.
