Special features for 2016

The subcompact segment seems to get larger by the year, and the 2016 Sonic faces stiff competition from established players like the Ford Fiesta and Honda Fit. With its nimble chassis and turbocharged 1.4L engine, 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.
The subcompact Chevy Sonic is a four-door hatchback that seats five and is offered in four trim levels. Base trim level outfitting consists of 15” steel wheels, automated headlamps, remote entry, manual accessories (excluding door locks), 60/40-split-folding rear bench, cloth seating, tilt and telescope steering wheel, Bluetooth integration, OnStar and a four-speaker audio system. Upgrading the trim level can add things like 17” alloy wheels, all-powered accessories, heated and powered side mirrors, upgraded interior upholstery, remote start, the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system with 7” touchscreen, smartphone integration, iPod/USB integration, sport accenting, vanity rear spoiler, sunroof, collision mitigation system and six-speaker audio system. Driving the Sonic is a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 138 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque.
