    Thinking of buying either a 2012 Spark or 2012 Sonic after college

    Which would be the better choice? I currently drive a 2005 Ford Focus ZX3 hatchback. It's pretty good, but I would prefer something easier on gas (I go about 250 miles in city driving on a tank of gas: roughly 23 mpg)

    I'm hopefully going to get getting my first real job in about 3 years after college and once I get my real job, I would like a new car.

    I've really got my eye on the 2012 Chevrolet Spark and the new 2012 Chevrolet Sonic.

    Which would you think would be a better buy?

    Spark:



    Sonic:

    I may be on the side of angels, but do not mistake me for one.

    I would wait until both cars are out and you have tried them both. Why are you asking us so early?

    Nothing wrong with being excited and optimistic, but I am sure things will change quite a bit for you in three years. You don't even know where you'll end up working

    But, to answer your question, I'd go with the Sonic.
    Current: '15 GMC Acadia SLE|'08 G8 GT
    Former: '12 Malibu LTZ|'08 G6 GT|'07 TrailBlazer LS|'05 GTO|'02 Camaro SS|'01 Camaro Z28|'00 Camaro SS|'97 Tahoe LT|'91 Camaro Z28|'89 Camaro IROC-Z
    Past Digressions: '02 Cougar V6 Sport Ultimate|'94 Grand Cherokee Laredo|'93 Mustang GT

    I've sat in the Spark and although comfortable, the 1.2l engine just doesn't do it for me.

    Get the Sonic.
