Today we get to see lesser number of compact and subcompacts cars, since the segment of crossovers has made its debut in the automotive market. But automakers like Chevrolet showed enough guts to continue manufacturing models of this car type. The 2020 Sonic is a compact car for small families from the house of Chevrolet thatpacks in good amount of value for money features while its utility aspects can be compared to that of many subcompact crossoversof the same price range.
At a prestigious showroom of Wilkesboro Chevrolet dealership, we booked our test drive with the 2020 Chevrolet Sonic after which we had to admit the fact that Chevrolet is still a master of manufacturing all car types. Thissmall sizedChevrolet compact car model makes an ideal picture of how a basic small car can serve all the purposes a subcompact crossover can do.
Options on Order Sheet
The 2020 Chevrolet Sonic model series can be ordered both in the shape of a sedan or hatchbackwith as many qualities one can get from a crossover of this size and price. The features offered in the 2020 Chevrolet Sonic models speaks of its versatility that we can see through its five different trim levels named as the LS, LT Sedan, LT Hatch, Premier Sedan, and Premier Hatch.
Changes Done For the 2020 Year Model
The 2020 Chevrolet Sonic looks no different than its previous generation model series, except for the standardization of the turbo-4 engine with a new automatic transmission across the entire range of lineup replacing the earlier naturally aspirated base engine. We also see addition of two new shades of hues to the exterior paint palette named as Oasis Blue and Cayenne Orange Metallic.
Our Test Drive Impression
Our test drive with the 2020 Chevrolet Sonic models was memorable in every sense. Driving on different surfaces with the turbo power, which is more powerful than it is required to run this small a car spiced up the performance beyond our imagination.
As said earlier the earlier base 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that got eliminated for the 2020 model year lineup is now replaced by a turbocharged 1.4-liter engine that mates to a six-speed automatic transmission that too replaced the manual one.
With this powertrain working under the hood, all the 2020 Chevrolet Sonic scores an EPA rated gas mileage of 29 mpg ina trip that combines both city and highway drives. Certainly this is one of the biggest reasons why a car as small and simple as 2020 Chevrolet Sonic could beat the rival models of the same segment as well as that of crossovers, justified the senior staff members of the Chevrolet Wilkesboro dealership showroom.
The powertrain in support of advanced driving dynamics could easily cope up with the undulations of the road surface, while it’s cozily arranged cabin with steady yet well cushioned seats provided enough support for the entire journey.
