What Is the 2020 Chevrolet Sonic?
The Chevrolet Sonic is a subcompact car that’s offered in sedan and four-door hatchback body styles. Power comes from a 138-horsepower, turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that works with a six-speed automatic transmission. The Sonic competes with the Honda Fit, Toyota Yaris and Kia Rio.
What’s New on the 2020 Chevrolet Sonic?
The six-speed manual is no longer available, which leaves a six-speed automatic as the car’s sole transmission.
What Features in the 2020 Chevrolet Sonic Are Most Important?
Standard features include air conditioning, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, a 7-inch touchscreen stereo, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, and two USB ports. Available features include a power-adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, simulated leather upholstery, cruise control and push-button start. Available active safety features include forward collision warning and lane departure warning.
Should I Buy the 2020 Chevrolet Sonic?
The Sonic rides well and road noise is well managed. The front seats are comfortable, and we like the car’s storage features, too. However, the Sonic’s brake pedal has a mushy feel, and the car’s small size contributes to modest backseat legroom. The hatchback’s rear visibility is also an issue.
Most wonderful car ever!
This car is stylish, peppy and simple. It is exactly what I was looking for! I have the Sedan version with the RS package which makes it sporty and fun. I love it! Read full review
