2013 Chevrolet Sonic

Trim: LT Hatch
by neromanceres on 05-05-2013
Excellent Car you get what you pay for
The Sonic Hatchback is an interesting car. It's small on the outside but gives a surprising amount of space on the inside for a subcompact. I'm 6'1” and over 300lbs and I'm comfortable in the car. I can even fit well into the rear seats (unlike the Ford Fiesta where I can't even get into the back seat). The new for 2013 Mylink system with 7” touch screen is very nice and works well. The car is very quiet and the interior materials are good for a car in this price point. This car is a little more expensive than some of the other cars in this segment but you also get more for your money. The Sonic handles very well and the transmission is well calibrated and smooth. We have the Sonic with the 1.8L engine. It doesn't produce a lot of torque on the low end so performance isn't spectacular but it moves the car well. For people who value performance the 1.4L Turbo might be a good choice to try.

In short this car is a nice all around car with great usable space that rides and drives like a car that is more expensive than it is.

2013 Chevrolet Sonic

Trim: RS
by qqqqqqqqqqqqqqq on 02-02-2013
Sporty Hatch
I loved the styling of the sonic since it came out in 2012. At the end of 2012 GM introduced the RS trim. It immediately struck my attention. The RS styling is further enhanced with a ground effects package, rear spoiler, redesigned fog lights, and nice 17 inch titanium alloy wheels. Inside a leather interior with front seat suede inserts, a touch screen infotainment system. The RS rides a little bit lower and has a sportier suspension compared to the other Sonic models. Overall I love and enjoy my car's look and performance. The 1.4L turbo with a 6speed manual provides a fun and economical ride at the same time. Pricing is a little bit high but for around $2000 more than the LTZ trim, it adds many nice features. I believe that there is not many subcompact hatchbacks that can compare to the Sonic RS. I read reviews that it could use more power etc., but I believe that for the car's size and weight, it zooms around quite nicely. Sure one cannot compare this car to a VW GTI but then one can also not compare the two price tags.
