I test drove the Spark at a Chevy dealership. It didnt feel that much faster, but did feel way more cramped and the dashboard looked just as cheap as a Mirage. This was a 2019 model I believe.
I feel like the Spark's dash and such are much more modern than the Mirage's, which looks like a melted bar of black soap.
I will also say that I have more confidence in the Mirage's quality and longevity regardless of style.
The Mirage looks great certain angles. Your Mirage for example looks great. But any Mirage hatch owner knows, other angles Mirages looks like an egg.
