2019 Chevrolet Sonic Review

2019 Chevrolet Sonic Review - Chevy is injecting some brand-new life into its portable Sonic with a visual freshening as well as some additional tech features for 2017. Still readily available in hatchback and car forms, the 2019 Sonic takes on an appearance just like its crossover equivalent, the Trax, which also was refreshed earlier this year.

We're greatly fans of the gritty little Sonic, as well as this upgrade should not alter our minds too much. Absolutely nothing under the skin is altered, and the face-lift represents a proper, if refined, upgrade. The hood, front fascia, and the headlights are brand-new, and also the Sonic also takes on optional LED accent lights and also a smaller sized grille. Out back, the rear fascia and also taillamps are a little improved, although we cannot inform much of a distinction.
New Hues, Wheels, and also Trims

The Sonic's already substantial color palette is wider for 2017, including shades including Orange Burst Metallic, Brimstone, Cajun Red Tintcoat, and Arctic Blue Metallic. The 15-, 16-, as well as 17-inch wheels also are new.

The Sonic sedan still is readily available in LS as well as LT vehicles, although the fanciest trim, formerly called LTZ, has been renamed Premier. The hatchback schedule is changing a bit so much more. It formerly offered LS, LT, LTZ, and sporty RS trim levels, but Chevrolet will currently apply the RS therapy-- including a stiffer suspension, sporting activity exhaust, and a body kit-- to all Sonic hatchbacks, which come only in LT as well as Premier trims. As in the past, Sonic sedan purchasers who want a bit much more excitement can additionally go with an RS bundle that brings similar upgrades as well as now makes the four-door appear like a full-size Chevy SS that's been squeezed into a smaller sized box for distribution.

Much more Techy Inside
Chevy has yet to supply any type of photos of the 2019 Chevrolet Sonic interior, so we'll need to wait up until next week's New York vehicle program to see the brand-new gauge cluster and also its analog speedometer for our own selves (the outgoing Sonic utilized a motorcycle-inspired electronic gauge cluster, which we liked). Or else, recently optional attributes consist of a power driver's seat, keyless entrance and push-button begin, heated towel seats, as well as a warmed guiding wheel. Vehicles furnished with the 7.0-inch MyLink touchscreen now supply Apple CarPlay and also Android Auto capability.

There are no changes to the conventional 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine or the optional 1.4-liter turbocharged 4. Both make 138 horsepower, however the smaller turbo's 148 lb-ft of torque is 23 more powerful compared to that of the typical engine, making it our preference. Both engines continue to be offered with a six-speed guidebook or a six-speed automated-- the turbo with the stick is the means to go.

The carryover mechanicals indicate that energy economic climate should not alter substantially from the 2019 Chevrolet Sonic EPA rankings. They currently range from 25-- 29 mpg city as well as 33-- 40 freeway for the 1.4-liter, with the 1.8-liter at 24-- 26 mpg city and also 35 freeway, which puts the Sonic behind the course leaders.

Do not anticipate much of a pricing modification for the changed 2017 Sonic, either; the 2016 version began at $15,220 for a manual-transmission car LS and also ranged approximately $22,370 for an RS with the automatic in either body system style. Anticipate to see the 2017 Sonic in dealers this fall.
