2019 Nissan Micra Vs 2019 Chevrolet Spark

2019 Nissan Micra Vs 2019 Chevrolet Spark

There are currently two cars on the market that stand out in terms of price: the 2019 Nissan Micra and the 2019 Chevrolet Spark. These two cars offer a very attractive starting price that’s a few thousand dollars less than other hatchback subcompacts available in Canada.

Available starting at $ 10,488, the Nissan Micra is a new car with a new car warranty and all the other benefits of a new car at a price that’s a lot closer to a pre-owned car. The Chevrolet Spark is also one of the more affordable cars in Canada so how do you differentiate the two? You have to go into the details.

The Micra more powerful and more spacious than the Chevrolet Spark

Let's first take a look under the hood where the Nissan Micra offers a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine developing 109 horsepower and 107 lb-ft of torque while the four-cylinder engine in the Spark offers 98 horsepower. It is the only engine in Canada in a new vehicle that does not reach 100 horsepower. The difference on the road will be felt when you accelerate and when you pass, as well as when you fill your Micra up.

With its average fuel consumption of just 6.6 liters per 100 kilometers on the highway and 8.7 liters per 100 kilometers in the city, the Nissan Micra is one of the most efficient cars you can buy in Canada today.

The other advantage the Micra has over the spark is when it comes to space. When Nissan decided to revive the Micra exclusively in Canada (our neighbors to the south are don’t get the Micra), the Japanese manufacturer paid special attention to versatility. The trunk has over 400 liters and enough room for a hockey bag while the cargo space can reach more than 800 liters if you lower the rear seat. In the Chevrolet Spark, cargo capacity is limited to 314 liters with all seats in place and 770 liters with the rear seat lowered.

More spacious and more powerful than the Spark, the Nissan Micra 2019 has strong arguments to convince buyers that go well beyond the price. Contact us today at Vickar Nissan to learn more!
