2017 Chevrolet Sonic Review

2017 Chevrolet Sonic Review - Chevy is infusing some new life into its portable Sonic with a visual freshening and some additional tech functions for 2017. Still readily available in hatchback as well as sedan types, the 2017 Sonic takes on a look similar to its crossover equivalent, the Trax, which additionally was refreshed earlier this year.

We're greatly fans of the spunky little Sonic, and this update should not alter our minds too much. Nothing under the skin is altered, as well as the new look stands for a proper, if refined, upgrade. The hood, front fascia, and the fronts lights are new, as well as the Sonic also takes on optional LED accent lights and a smaller grille. Out back, the rear fascia and taillamps are somewhat improved, although we can not tell much of a distinction.

New Hues, Rims, as well as Trims
The Sonic's currently substantial different colors palette is wider for 2017, including shades consisting of Orange Burst Metallic, Brimstone, Cajun Red Tintcoat, and Arctic Blue Metallic. The 15-, 16-, and also 17-inch wheels additionally are new.

The Sonic sedan still is readily available in LS and LT models, although the fanciest trim, formerly called LTZ, has actually been renamed Premier. The hatchback schedule is transforming a bit a lot more. It previously offered LS, LT, LTZ, as well as flashy RS trim degrees, but Chevrolet will currently apply the RS therapy-- including a stiffer suspension, sport exhaust, as well as a body package-- to all Sonic hatchbacks, which come only in LT and also Premier trims. As in the past, Sonic car customers who desire a little bit more excitement could likewise pick an RS plan that brings comparable upgrades as well as currently makes the four-door resemble a full-size Chevy SS that's been squished right into a smaller box for delivery.

A lot more Techy Inside
Chevy has yet to offer any type of images of the 2017 Sonic's inside, so we'll need to wait up until next week's New york city automobile program to see the brand-new gauge collection and also its analog speedometer for our own selves (the outbound Sonic made use of a motorcycle-inspired digital gauge cluster, which we suched as). Or else, newly optional functions include a power vehicle driver's seat, keyless entrance and push-button start, warmed cloth seats, as well as a heated guiding wheel. Vehicles geared up with the 7.0-inch MyLink touchscreen now provide Apple CarPlay and Android Vehicle capability.

There are no changes to the typical 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine or the optional 1.4-liter turbocharged four. Both make 138 horse power, yet the smaller turbo's 148 lb-ft of torque is 23 stronger compared to that of the basic engine, making it our choice. Both engines continuously be offered with a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic-- the turbo with the stick is the means to go.

The carryover mechanicals indicate that energy economic climate should not change considerably from the 2016 Sonic's EPA rankings. They presently vary from 25-- 29 mpg city and also 33-- 40 highway for the 1.4-liter, with the 1.8-liter at 24-- 26 mpg city as well as 35 highway, which puts the Sonic behind the course leaders.

Do not anticipate much of a prices change for the modified 2017 Sonic, either; the 2016 vehicle started at $15,220 for a manual-transmission car LS and also ranged up to $22,370 for an RS with the automated in either body system style. Anticipate to see the 2017 Sonic in dealerships this fall.
