The 2018 Chevrolet Sonic Sedan is a subcompact sedan offered in 3 trims, starting off at a base MSRP of $15,295. For that price, it mainly competes with the Ford Fiesta Sedan, the Kia Rio Sedan, and the Toyota Yaris Sedan. Between 3 trims, the Sonic sedan offers 2 powertrains. The standard engine is a 1.8L inline-4 engine making 138 horsepower and 125 lb-ft of torque, mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. If more power is required, there is also a 148 lb-ft torque-making 1.4L turbocharged inline-4 engine which gets paired to a 6-speed manual transmission. Both engines also offer a 6-speed automatic transmission as optional. The Sonic Sedan reaches 60 mph from zero in 8.4 seconds on its base engine, which gets pumped up to 8.2 seconds with the 1.4L turbocharged inline-4 engine. Depending on the powertrain, the Sonic Sedan can manage a combined fuel economy between 28 and 32 mpg. While we’re on the topic of choices, the 9 striking colors the Sonic Sedan comes in really pull you towards itself.
