Chevrolet believes that driving a small, fuel-efficient car should not mean that you have to sacrifice amenities like the latest technologies and safety features. The 2017 Chevrolet Sonic is a shining example of Chevrolet's philosophy of outfitting even their most affordable vehicles with an impressive list of standard features -- along with plenty of available high-tech features, too! The new Sonic is a fun and economical little car that packs a surprising amount of cargo space and technology features inside its sporty exterior. The Sonic was also the first car in its class to provide ten airbags as standard, once again proving that value does not have to come at the expense of safety.
Featuring a restyled front fascia, hood, LED daytime running lamps, and taillights, the 2017 Sonic is even sportier and sleeker than the model it replaces. A larger front air dam offers increased air induction into the Sonic's peppy powertrain, while the redesigned taillights and sporty exhaust tip out back further hint at the Sonic's sporting aspirations. The new RS Package on the 2017 Sonic adds even more performance-inspired touches, like sporty rocker moldings, a rear spoiler and inside, a 3-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel. The Sonic's infotainment system is now compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, meaning that you never again have to feel disconnected while driving!
The 2017 Chevy Sonic comes standard with an ECOTEC 1.8-liter inline 4-cylinder engine, delivering 138 hp to the front wheels via either a standard 5-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. Chevrolet's recently developed 1.4-liter ECOTEC inline 4-cylinder engine also develops 138 horses (and increased torque, at 148 lb-ft), but offers a boost in the fuel economy department. Once you get behind the wheel of a sporty 2017 Sonic sedan or hatchback, you will see why these peppy small cars are such a blast to drive!
Chevrolet's 2017 Sonic small car is available in a multitude of combinations, thanks to its two body styles and multiple trim levels. The 2017 Sonic sedan can be had in LS, LT, or Premier trims, while the Sonic hatchback model is offered in LT and Premier. It's truly impressive how much technology and convenience features Chevrolet has packed into the Sonic at such an affordable price. For instance, every 2017 Chevy Sonic hatch comes standard with safety features like ten air bags, a Rear Vision Camera, StabiliTrak stability control system with Brake Assist, traction control, and Hill Start Assist. The Chevrolet MyLink Radio with 7" diagonal color touch-screen is also standard; that's right, a large touchscreen comes as standard equipment on this highly affordable small car!
