AWARDS & SAFETY

The Chevrolet Spark has been awarded the 20181 and 20172 KBB.com 5-Year Cost to Own (Subcompact Car).

If you're driving a 2021 Chevrolet Spark10, and stray from your lane, no worries: the optional Lane Departure Warning System will give you an audio alert, possibly helping avert an accident. If you're driving a 2021 Kia Rio 5-Door, this extra layer of safety isn't even an option.

The 2021 Chevrolet Spark4 offers side airbag protection to its rear passengers standard, but that same level of safety isn't even an option on the 2021 Kia Rio 5-Door.

FEATURES

While they're not as popular in more mild areas, in frigid climates many drivers find heated seats, a standard feature on the 2021 Chevrolet Spark6, quite necessary. If you want heated seats on the 2021 Kia Rio 5-Door, though, you'll have to pay extra for them.

No more parallel parking jitters - the Rear Parking Aid, standard on the 2021 Chevrolet Spark7, can help guide you into the perfect parking spot, signaling when you're getting too close to the curb, or other cars. Unless you enjoy the parallel parking jitters, in which case, choose the 2021 Kia Rio 5-Door, and don't pay extra for the rear parking aid option.

Even the most discerning music aficionado is sure to find a channel to enjoy on satellite radio, a standard feature on the 2021 Chevrolet Spark8... but not on the 2021 Kia Rio 5-Door9.

The 2021 Chevrolet Spark's8 optional sunroof lets the light in on even the gloomiest day. Sadly, the 2021 Kia Rio 5-Door doesn't come with a sunroof, no matter how nicely you ask for one.
