Chevy Sonic Trims and Configurations
The base Sonic LS is a practical, comfortable, and efficient vehicle. There are many notable standard amenities on the base trim, including 15-inch wheels and remote locking and unlocking. LED daytime running headlights, which are automatic, make night driving and driving in inclement weather safer and less harrowing. The LS comes with a backup camera for parking and maneuverability assistance. It also has manually operated windows and side mirrors. The driver's seat can be adjusted in four ways, and the rear seat splits and folds down. Entertainment is offered through the seven-inch touchscreen display, which offers Bluetooth support, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. There are two USB ports in the cabin, and the sound system is powered by four speakers. OnStar is also a base component of the Sonic, and it comes with Wi-Fi internet connection. The LS is powered by a 1.8L, four-cylinder engine, and it is produced exclusively in a sedan body style. The mid-level LT sedan also has 15-inch wheels, but its wheels are made of alloy rather than steel. Both mirrors and windows are power-operated on this model, and the interior has a slightly more elegant cloth upholstery. The sound system is slightly better with six speakers compared to the LS's four. The LT is also made in a sedan body style, but drivers have two choices of engines and transmissions. One option is a six-speed manual transmission paired with a 1.4L engine, and the other is a six-speed automatic transmission matched to a 1.8L engine. The LT can be tailored with a number of add-on amenities, including heated front seats, a heated leather steering wheel, and a push-button start. A sunroof and larger 17-inch wheels can be added on with the “Fun and Sun” package on the automatic. The highest level Sonic is the Premier, which has a 1.4L engine, 17-inch wheels, heated front seats, and simulated leather seats as standard features. A heated steering wheel is an option with the automatic version, and the sunroof can be added to both the manual and automatic body styles.
