Chevrolet Sonic - a new idea of American cars

Over the years, American subcompact cars lagged behind their European classmates, but today the situation has changed somewhat. A striking example of the talent of American automakers of this class is the 2012 Chevrolet Sonic, designed to replace a bit bored Aveo. Such a change of generation has been brewing for a long time, since there was a need to create a really high-quality and stylish car.

The Chevrolet Sonic is available in two versions: a sedan and a hatchback. The special pride of the car is its salon, really one of the best among the subcompact cars. In order to create a maximum of free space, all the available tools were used. Even the passengers of the rear seat will not be constrained in space, which has always been considered a classic problem of cars of this level. There is surprisingly enough room for the head and shoulders, even a man with a complexion more than average.

For the sake of justice, it should be noted that the seat itself can be conveniently called with great stretch, but this, apparently, is the payoff for a maximum of free space. The decoration of the passenger compartment was done without excesses, but everything was assembled in a high-quality way, even with a detailed examination, it was not possible to reveal any backlash or creaking. As for the luggage compartment, the sedan has a volume of 422 liters, the hatchback has 538 liters with the possibility to increase it to 1350 liters. When the rear seat is folded.

Worked designers Chevrolet Sonic and over the appearance. And although the new car looks at the notes of the predecessor, it looks, undoubtedly, more stylishly, distinctly distinguished in the flow of cars by its eccentricity. The security issue was not ignored. The car received a well-deserved 5 points by this criterion, which is the highest possible estimate.

Under the hood of the Chevrolet Sonic is a 4-cylinder engine with a capacity of 138 hp. (1.4 liters). As for the gearbox, then a choice of 5-speed mechanics or a 6-speed automatic transmission. The version of the "Turbo" is completed only with a 6-speed automatic. A special reason for the pride of designers is the economy of the engine. So, for example, when operating in urban driving conditions, the car spends just over 8 liters per 100 km. On the road this figure is reduced to 6 liters altogether. Such an appetite can be safely called moderate. By the way, directly during the ride on the highway "iron horse" confidently holds the track, at the same time, it is maneuverable and easy to manage.

A few words about the cost of Chevrolet Sonic. The price of the car, depending on the configuration, body type , etc., is in the range of 14000-23000 USD.

Summarizing the above, we come to the conclusion that the car turned out to be really high-quality in all aspects, safe and stylish. Its direct competitors are Toyota Yaris, Hyundai Accent. It should be noted that "Sonic" will not hit the dirt in the face of the company with eminent brethren. The relative disadvantages of the car can be called only not the best seats and slightly outdated 1.8-liter engine, which, however, as the results of numerous test drives show, did not spoil porridge.
