    Expert Rating

    4.1 (Excellent)
    26 City / 36 Highway

    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

    5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

    4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

    3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

    2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

    1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

    2015 Chevrolet Sonic OVERVIEW

    Chevrolet's resident subcompact remains a favorite of buyers looking for economical transportation that doesn't skimp on technology or overall performance. The Sonic is highly scalable too, meaning you can add a plethora of upgrades to match your priorities.

    What's New for 2015

    The standard OnStar system gains a built-in WiFi hotspot, and the upmarket LTZ now comes exclusively with the turbocharged engine.

    Choosing Your Chevrolet Sonic

    The Sonic does an admirable job of imitating a larger car with legitimate seating for five passengers and a relatively comfortable ride. The sedan's 14-cubic-foot trunk rivals some midsize cars, and the standard split-folding seatbacks allow for even more space. With up to 30 cubic-feet available for cargo, the hatchback is the more versatile choice, though it's not to be mistaken for a small wagon.

    The standard 1.8-liter four-cylinder produces 138 horsepower and is available with your choice of a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. The optional 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder makes the same number of horses, but delivers significantly more torque for snappier acceleration. A six-speed manual comes standard with the turbo, and the automatic remains optional. With the manual, the base engine achieves 30 mpg in combined driving, while the turbo is good for 33 mpg. Expect a 2 mpg drop with either engine when you opt for the automatic.

    The Sonic covers a lot of market territory across its four trim levels:


    The basic Sonic comes with air conditioning, power locks, automatic headlamps, keyless entry, Bluetooth phone, 15-inch steel wheels and a four-speaker sound system with steering wheels controls. An optional six-speaker system comes with a CD player, Bluetooth audio and satellite radio. Note that power windows are not available.

    Available with auto or manual transmission.


    Gets the LS's audio upgrade as standard, plus power windows, heated power mirrors, upgraded cloth upholstery, cruise control, alloy wheels and remote ignition (requires automatic transmission). Hatchback models gain a rear cargo shelf. The 1.4-liter turbocharged engine is available as a standalone option or in the Sun and Fun package, which also includes a sunroof and 16-inch wheels. This year's Promotional package bundles together Dragon Green metallic paint, fog lamps and a sunroof. Chevrolet's MyLink infotainment interface and a rearview camera can be added individually. With those two options in place, your LT is eligible for an Advanced Safety package with forward collision alert and lane departure warning.

    Available with auto or manual transmission.


    Comes standard with the 1.4-liter turbo, MyLink, a rearview camera and fog lamps. Other upgrades include 17-inch wheels, chrome exterior trim, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats and leather-like vinyl upholstery. The Advanced Safety package continues as an option, and a sunroof can be added separately.

    Available with auto or manual transmission.


    Builds on the LTZ with four-wheel disc brakes, a sport-tuned suspension and unique 17-inch wheels. You also get sportier trim on the outside, and a leather interior and sport steering wheel inside.

    Available with auto or manual transmission.

    CarsDirect Tip

    All things considered, the LT offers the best balance of features and affordability, which is probably why it's so popular with buyers. We should also mention that the line-topping RS is truly enjoyable to drive, a rarity in this price class.
