Attention Seeking Looks

Drivers will be pleased to find that the attractive exterior styling carries over to the interior. Complete with a motorcycle-inspired dash, large luxurious LCD screen, and aggressive yet sophisticated cabin, you may forget you're driving a small car.
Turbo-charged engine makes Chevrolet Sonic one-of-one; yet only 5.1L/100 km
With the only turbocharged engine in its class, the Chevrolet Sonic is able to demonstrate performance that is truly unique. With a class leading 148 lb.-ft of torque and 138 horsepower packed into the 1.4 L engine, you'll have no problem passing vehicles on the highway or maneuvering through emergency situations, and you might even have a little fun along the way. And although the car may be packed with power, it only consumes 5.1L/ 100 km on the highway, meaning you get to spend more time cruising and less time at the gas pump.
Pick Your Wheels
The Sonic provides its drivers with the choice of four wheel styles and sizes to better fit your needs. Whether you want the bolt on wheel covers or 15, 16, or 17-inch painted aluminum wheels, you'll have more than enough choices to make your car perfect for you.
Comfortable Ride is Premium Handling and Standard
The Sonic was put through countless suspension variations and tests until engineers were able to find one that perfectly mixed a comfortable ride, superior handling, and impressive agility similar to that of a sports car. This guarantees that the Sonic drives like a vehicle never before seen in this segment. The Sonic will keep you looking forward to the next time you get to drive it.
Large Car Space in a Small Car Body
Whether you are driving to the rink, to the golf course, or packing up to head to the lake, the Sonic will be able to handle whatever you're carrying. With an astounding 14.9 cubic feet of trunk space and a 60/40 split-folding rear seat, the Sonic is able to carry more than others in the segment like the Honda Civic or the Toyota Corolla.
The Chevrolet Sonic is fully equipped with safety features that help give it its class leading 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score for safety from NHTSA as well as a Top Safety Pick from the IIHS. These features include a steel safety cage, StabiliTrak Electronic Stability Control System, Traction Control, 4-wheel anti-lock brakes, 10 standard air bags, OnStar, and much more.
All the technology you could ask for
With technology being such a big part of our lives, we had to make sure Sonic was up to drivers' expectations. This was done by taking full advantage of today's smartphones and allowing them to be used safely while driving.
Chevrolet has introduced the BringGo navigation app for your phone that allows drivers to enter a destination to the 3-D map, plug it into the vehicle, and be able to see it on the Sonic's LCD touchscreen.
Siri Eyes Free is a feature that allows iPhone users to have access to there phones while driving. You are now able to safely pay attention to the road andtype a text message or email, call a friend, or browse music all through voice commands.
Another useful application to liven up your drive is TuneIn radio. After dowloading the TuneIn app for free, the user will have access to over 70,000 radio stations from all over the world.
OnStar is General Motors' creation designed to make your driving experience the best it can be. With features like hands-free calling and turn by turn navigation, drivers will never have to fidget around with maps or their phones while driving again. Not only does OnStar provide handy driving features, but it also gives its users safety features that no other car company can offer such as emergency crash response. Through OnStar, you'll be able to download the Remote Link TM Key Fob Services, which allows drivers to unlock or lock their vehicle, start the AC or the engine before they even open the door.
Chevrolet MyLink radio features a 7-inch LCD touchscreen radio. This Bluetooth compatible screen allows you to wirelessly stream music from your smartphone as well as make phone calls without having to directly use your phone. When parked you are even able to screen video and pictures from your phone, making this as technologically advanced of a radio you will find in any vehicle, not to mention something no other car in this class can offer.
Today, with the exception of safety, the most important thing to drivers is fuel efficiency. With us Manitobans driving to the lake on the weekends, we know that we definitely appreciate fuel efficiency. The Sonic makes that easy with its 40 MPG capabilites and its ability to drive 785 km on a single tank of gas.
Variable Valve Timing
An important fuel saving technology featured on the Sonic is Continously Variable Valve Timing. VVT works to adjust airflow inside and outside of the combustion chamber and undere all engine speeds which increases the fuel economy and produces lower emissions.
The sonic is the only vehicle in its class that is assembled in the United States which minimizes consumption of energy as well as emissions that are caused by vehicle transport.
The Sonic features great end-of-life recyclability as an impressive 85% of the vehicle is able to be recycled which reduces landfill deposits as well as conserves resources.
The manufacturing facility for the Sonic utilizes a process that reuses, recycles, and converts waste from daily operations, into useful energy. Not only does the facility reuse its waste but 20% of the energy used to heat and cool the final assembly facility of the Sonic is supplied by landfill gas.
