The 2017 Chevrolet Sonic sedan is a subcompact sedan offered in 3 trims, starting off at a base MSRP of $15,145. For that price, it mainly competes with the Nissan Versa, the Hyundai Accent, and the Kia Rio. Between 3 trims, the Sonic offers 2 powertrains. The base engine is a 1.8L Inline-4 capable of making 138 horsepower and 125 lb-ft of torque. If more torque is required, there is also a 1.4L Turbo Inline-4 engine with 138 horsepower and 148 lb-ft of torque. The former engine is coupled with a standard 5-speed manual transmission whereas the 6-speed manual transmission is standard on the latter. Meanwhile, both engines are mated to an optional 6-speed automatic transmission. The Sonic reaches 60 mph from zero in 9.5 seconds on its base engine, which gets pumped up to 8.4 seconds with the 1.4L Turbo Inline-4. Depending on the powertrain, the Sonic can manage a combined fuel economy between 28 and 32 mpg. While we’re on the topic of choices, the 8 striking colors the Sonic comes in really pull you towards itself.
