Special features for 2015

The subcompact segment seems to get larger by the year, and the 2014 Sonic faces stiff competition from established players like the Ford Fiesta and Honda Fit. With its nimble chassis and turbocharged 1.4L engine -- the only turbo in its class -- the Sonic offers a spirited driving experience its rivals can't match. Sedan or hatchback body styles also give it the edge, and with a low entry price and plenty of convenience options just a click away, the Sonic stands out as a real bargain for shoppers on a budget.
Whether you choose the four-door hatchback or the sedan, one thing is assured: you’ll have a blast driving the Chevrolet Sonic. Super-tuned suspension assures that each turn is smooth and nimble, and that your ride doesn’t get too bumpy. Select from your choice of four trim levels (LS, LT, LTZ and RS), each with an added upgrade cost and plenty of features and amenities offered. Standard it comes with 15” wheels, keyless entry, cloth interior (upgradable), split-folding 60/40 rear bench, OnStar and a four-speaker sound system with Bluetooth. Upgrades add things like heated mirrors, sporty interior, six-speaker stereo system, rear cargo shelf (in the hatchback model), and larger wheels, as well as the MyLink touchscreen audio system. The Sonic comes with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine which makes 138 horsepower at 125 pound-feet of torque in a five-speed manual, upgradable to a six-speed automatic, rated at 28 mpg. The turbo-charged engine gets the same horsepower, but offers a tad more torque (148 lb-ft of torque). For a small car, the Sonic has plenty to offer.
