It might be small in stature, but the 2020 Chevrolet Sonic is big on space, technology, and efficiency
What is the Chevrolet Sonic?
Available as a sedan or hatchback, the Sonic is a small, budget-friendly car. Though it fits nicely into just about any parking space, you’ll be surprised at just how spacious it is inside. The Sonic also treats you to a wealth of standard infotainment features. If you’re looking for complete smartphone integration and a Wi-Fi hotspot, you can get them right here for an excellent price. The Sonic is also known for its excellent crash test scores, including a perfect five-star rating for overall protection from the government.
Which 2020 Chevrolet Sonic trim model should I choose?
The 2020 Sonic is available in three different flavors: the base LS, midlevel LT, and top-trim Premier. Each adds more in comfort and convenience, which of course comes at a slightly higher price.
The entry-level LS is a great place to start. It serves technophiles well with its robust standard lineup, which includes two USB ports, Bluetooth, and a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen. The infotainment system keeps you connected with minimal distraction, thanks to its Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity features. The LS also includes modern basics like remote locking and unlocking and LED daytime running lights.
Note that the LS is only available with the sedan body style. If you want a roomier cargo hold and hatchback exterior style, you need the LT or Premier, which are offered as either a sedan or hatchback.
The LT upgrades your day-to-day convenience levels with heated power mirrors and power windows. This trim also opens the door for options like push-button start and heated front seats. Add the Driver Confidence package for safety aids like forward collision alert and lane departure warning.
On the top-trim Premier, you’ll find little luxuries, like simulated leather upholstery and standard proximity entry with push-button start. This Sonic comes standard with features that are optional on the LT, including heated front seats.
Is the 2020 Chevrolet Sonic a good car?
With a starting MSRP of just $16,720 and excellent standard features lineup, the 2020 Sonic is a great choice for commuters. But this little car offers much more than an excellent value proposition.
For starters, it was built to last. And this Chevy’s sturdy performance is underscored by its warranty coverage. Every Sonic comes with three years or 36,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper limited warranty coverage. And your Sonic purchase also includes a limited powertrain warranty that’s good for five years or 60,000 miles – whichever comes first.
