    Expert Rating

    4.2 (Excellent)
    26 City / 35 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.

    2017 Chevrolet Sonic OVERVIEW

    Anyone seeking a subcompact that offers a nice blend of safety, comfort, and features should find a lot to like in the Chevrolet Sonic. In addition to steady handling and respectable ride comfort, the Sonic offers plenty of advanced safety features. Available as a sedan or hatchback, the Sonic can be configured to meet a broad range of priorities without disrupting the family budget.

    What's New for 2017

    Freshening of the Sonic’s exterior includes new LED lighting, as well as a new hood and front fascia. LED daytime running lights and a heated steering wheel are now available. So is rear parking assist. A new gauge cluster incorporates an analog speedometer. The previous LTZ trim level is gone, replaced by the Premier. A new MyLink infotainment system, with a 7-inch screen, includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. A rearview camera now is standard on all Sonics.

    Choosing Your Chevrolet Sonic

    All four Sonic trim levels are available as a sedan or four-door hatchback. Base LS and LT models come with a standard Ecotec 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine, which can be paired with either a five-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic. Generating a respectable 138 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque, the base engine is estimated at 25 mpg city/33 mpg highway with the manual transmission, or 24/34 mpg with the automatic.

    Optional on the LT and standard for the Premier and RS is a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that also makes 138 horsepower, but offers more torque and up to 28/38 mpg.

    The Sonic covers quite a bit of market territory, with three sedan trim levels and two for the RS hatchback:

    LS Sedan

    Comes with the manual transmission, 15-inch steel wheels, keyless entry, OnStar 4G LTE with Wi-Fi hotspot, Chevrolet MyLink AM/FM audio with 7-inch screen, Bluetooth compatibility, steering wheel controls, air conditioning, 10 airbags, and daytime running lights. Available options focus on exterior trim and colors. The automatic transmission adds $1,250.

    LT Sedan

    Moving to the LT, starting at $18,405, adds a premium 6-speaker audio system, SiriusXM satellite radio, cruise control, power windows, and heated power mirrors. A $495 Driver Confidence Package includes forward collision alert, lane-departure warning, and rear parking assist. A Convenience Package also is offered. The automatic transmission costs $640 additional.

    Premier Sedan

    Replacing the prior LTZ, the $20,595 Premier starts with the 1.4-liter turbo engine and a standard RS Package, which adds sporty body components. Also included are leatherette upholstery, heated front seats, 17-inch wheels, fog lamps, and automatic projector headlights. The Advanced Safety Package continues as an option, and a power sunroof is available. The automatic transmission adds $695.

    RS/ LT Hatchback

    On the hatchback, a standard RS Package features sporty rocker moldings, a sport rear spoiler, black-accented instrument panel, leather-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel with contrasting stitching, and foglamps. A sport exhaust system and Touring suspension are standard. With the standard 1.8-liter engine and five-speed manual transmission, pricing starts at $18,455. The automatic adds $1,390.

    RS/ Premier Hatchback

    For $2,140 more than the LT hatchback, the Premier version moves up to the turbocharged 1.4-liter engine and a six-speed manual transmission, along with a sport suspension.

    CarsDirect Tip

    Hatchback styling makes the RS versions stand out in this class. Especially with the Premier’s turbo engine and sport suspension, the RS delivers a ride that’s surprisingly snappy and fun. An RS Package is available for the sedan, too. If your priority is getting the most car for the money, the LT sedan or hatchback delivers a bit more value.
