2014 Chevrolet Sonic Review
It is coffered in four-door hatchback and sedan body styles, both of which can accommodate up to five passengers. Standard equipment used on the car includes automatic headlights, keyless entry, cloth upholstery, air conditioning and 15-inch steel wheels among other things. On the same note, the LT trim level also adds cruise control, remote ignition, Bluetooth audio connectivity and satellite radio among other things.
Most 2014 Chevrolet Sonic have a standard engine of 1.8-liter four-cylinder. Also included is a five-speed manual transmission that includes a hill holder feature. Fuel economy is estimated at 30 mpg combined with the manual and 28 mpg combined with the automatic. It features an optional 1.4-liter four-cylinder for both the LTZ and LT. Thanks to its 148 lb torque, it feels more potent than most other cars. While the six-speed manual transmission is standard, the six-speed automatic transmission is optional. The Sonic SR features a standard turbocharged engine.
To guarantee safety, every 2014 Sonic features a standard traction/stability control. Also included are antilock brakes. On the same breath, all front seats are equipped with knee airbags, impact airbags and side curtain airbags.
Besides that, LTZ and RS models all have a rearview camera while this is an option on the LT model. Also included is the Advanced Safety package that warns the driver of impending head-on collisions. Lane departure warning system is also included on all models save for the LS model. Another standard inclusion is the OnStar, a security feature that notifies the driver about a crash.
Special features and interior design
The interior of this car is attractive enough to meet any taste and preference. Even the tallest of drivers are sure of finding a workable position inside the new Sonic. However, one of the most intriguing features of this car is the MyLink System which replaces the traditional stereo system. It features a customizable 7-inch interface and voice controls that make this model stand in a class of its own. And when it comes to cargo capacity, the sedan’s trunk is among the largest in this segment. It offers 19 cubic feet with rear seat ups.
