very gas efficient 40+ highway.

2017 Chevrolet Sonic

I love the sonic. Car seats fit and tighten into the curve of the back seats perfectly. The handling is excellent, even in bad weather. For being so low to the ground I thought it wouldn't handle well in snow/ice but the past two winters have proved me wrong. As long as you aren't trying to drive into a foot of snow she does amazing. I keep up on basics and other then a sensor in the tires going out recently I haven't had any major problems with the car.

Don't plan on ever trading my Sonic in. Love at first sight.

2017 Chevrolet Sonic

I love my sonic. It is comfortable, great on gas. Equipped for satellite radio. I have not had an issue since I bought the car November 2017. I wish it had heated seats. But I can live with that. The monthly service report I get is so handy so that I know how much oil life I have, how much air each tire has and if there are any maintenance issues is an added perk that I love- and it doesn't cost me anything.

- Nicole B

Great gas mileage and never a problem

2017 Chevrolet Sonic

I love my car . I have never had any problems with it at all . I live in tremendous heat and the air keeps going. The features of when to get an oil change are very handy. This car comes in an array of beautiful colors. The maintenance of my vehicle is very minimum. It's an awesome car I highly recommend it .

Not spacious enough for someone with children in car seats.

2017 Chevrolet Sonic

It is absolutely terrible in the snow here in Michigan. So light that there's never any traction build up. It's great on gas mileage. There's definitely not even enough room in it to haul two young children around with car seats. The hatchback isn't big enough for maybe even 3-4 bags of groceries.

- Amber R

Great features, manual windows

2017 Chevrolet Sonic

Love the way it runs and there is a lot of room in the backseat and the trunk space. My only tedious thing is that there are no automatic windows and I have to manually roll them up but other than that it's great. It has Bluetooth for the radio and you can answer or make phone calls from the car.

- Kimberly A

I am a fan of technology, so the CarPlay compatibility is something I use daily!

2017 Chevrolet Sonic

I had technical issues with the vehicle that even the Chevrolet dealership had trouble figuring out. It took three times for them to finally fix it, but I now love the vehicle. Great size and comfort, accommodations are wonderful, and the gas mileage is fantastic. I really like this car.

- Abby S

Reliable and inexpensive!

2017 Chevrolet Sonic

This car is very reliable, good on gas mileage and cheap to maintain. The biggest challenge I have with it is in the winter. It is too light for snow. That said, it is a very solid choice for someone looking for a cheap and easy car and perhaps who lives somewhere a little more south.

Chevy Sonic has a compact, sleek design.

2017 Chevrolet Sonic

I like the Chevy Sonic. It would be a good starter car for someone who is looking for their first car. It's small and compact with a sleek design. The only thing that I feel needs some improvement is the bucket style seats. The seats sit low which can be somewhat uncomfortable.

- Jennifer I

Single supreme, apple car play a plus

2017 Chevrolet Sonic

Car is Great! The only downfall I have is with the LS version the windows are all manual but this works fine it you rarely have passengers. I love the apple carplay features as the GPS really helps with long trips. It's a nice small vehicle for anyone who does not have kids.

- Jackie P

Chevy Sonic 'Boom' a little rocket for the road.

2017 Chevrolet Sonic

I love my car, its compact yet spacious. Large trunk space and the seat let down for longer items. It has great gas mileage so far I'm at 24.5 mpg and it is great on gas. It has hands free calling and the best part about the car is that it does not need constant maintenance.

- Jacinda A

Very good gas saver, for these gas prices nowadays

2017 Chevrolet Sonic

This car is really good on gas I don't have to stop for gas as often as I used to. I enjoy how smooth my car is and how easy everything is to navigate! It's a pretty small car but spacious at the same time. Everything is updated and perfect I wouldn't trade it
