2018 Chevrolet Sonic Review

Overview
If you want more than just a way to get from A to B the Chevrolet Sonic is for you. Sporty spacious and a genuine hoot to drive the Sonic combines fun and efficiency in a great-looking package. Choose from three models: LS LT and Premier. LT and Premier models are available in sedan and hatchback body styles. No matter what you do there’s space to haul. With seating for five and a 60/40-split folding rear seat there’s room for family and friends—and all their gear. Coffee shop Wi-Fi is history with the Sonic’s built-in 4G Wi-Fi hotspot. Connect up to seven devices—and it works up to fifty feet away from the car. And Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system adds Bluetooth Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to the mix. With all its available safety features the Sonic got a 5-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Institute. Not every small car can say that. Choose from a variety of colors options and accessories and build a Sonic that’s all yours. The Chevrolet Sonic. Let the good times roll.
