There's a lot to look forward to in the latest Chevy Sonic, which is a small car with a big personality. The Sonic this year runs on a more powerful base engine, giving it a boost of power and a more competitive spirit. This year, you can order your Sonic in a new choice of color called Shock, which is a bright neon green. On the inside, the Sonic packs in plenty of technology while still providing room for five passengers. The standard technology in the Sonic surpasses that of others in its class, with a standard seven-inch infotainment touchscreen complete with Bluetooth, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay. OnStar, which is available through a one-month complimentary subscription, provides roadside assistance when you need it. A number of driver-assist safety features are either standard or available, depending on the trim level.
The Sonic is available in both a sedan and a hatchback version. There are three trim levels available, which are the LS, LT, and the Premier. Standard features in the base model include integrated steering wheel controls for the infotainment system and a tilt-telescopic steering wheel. Air conditioning is standard, and you'll get sporty bucket seats in the front row. The base model rides on 15-inch wheels, and it has plenty of sound with a four-speaker audio system. In the back row, the split-folding rear seats make room for either passengers or extra cargo as needed.
The mid-level LT adds a six-speaker audio system for richer sound. A touch of luxury graces this trim level with a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The windows are power-operated, and the car comes with heated outer mirrors. On this trim, you'll get aluminum wheels instead of steel, but they're still 15 inches. Deluxe cloth seats are standard, and both heated seats and a heated steering wheel are optional.
The Premier, which is the highest-level trim available, offers even more in the way of standard features. This trim has a remote start for convenience. It also has a six-speaker audio system, and as a bonus it comes with a complimentary satellite radio subscription. Heated seats are standard in the front row, and the car comes with heated outside mirrors. This trim gives you larger 17-inch wheels. Painted aluminum wheels are standard, and you can choose black aluminum wheels if you want a change. Heated seats and a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel make for comfortable driving no matter where you're going.
Improved Performance & Power
The 2019 Chevy Sonic gets a new base engine this year, which is a zippier 1.4L, turbo-charged engine that generates up to 148 LB-FT of torque, which is more than the base engine on previous trims generated. However, at 138 the HP is the same. The engine is paired with hill-start assist and either a touring suspension (on the lower two trims) or a sport suspension, which is found on the Premier. In all trims, you have the option of getting either a manual or an automatic transmission. Both are six-speed transmissions.
Vehicle Safety & Protection Benefits
Depending on the trim level you get, you'll get a number of standard and available safety features. All three trim levels have 10 airbags located throughout the cabin, which are designed to deploy when the car is hit from the front and sides. Seat belt pretensioners for the driver and passenger seats help prevent whiplash in case of an accident. Emergency brake assist is also standard on all trims, as are anti-lock brakes. LED daytime running lights enhance the visibility. A backup camera is also standard on all trim levels. Available safety features are primarily driver-assist aids such as lane departure warning, rear park assistance, and forward collision warning.
