2017 Chevy Sonic – Albany, NY
These days, it seems like the American auto market has been flipped on its head. For many consumers, long gone are the days of the bulky SUV and huge truck – and compacts may just be the things to take their places. With buyers everywhere looking for more compact, more efficient, and more affordable models to match our fast-paced lifestyles, automakers have responded by pumping out some pretty impressive models in years past. Chevy, for instance, has pushed the boundaries with models like the Sonic, the Spark, and even the all-electric Spark EV, not to mention city-friendly compact crossovers like the Trax. But with years of experience and a good sense for what the market wants, Chevy seems more than prepared to meet the demand for small, efficient cars with confidence – and it all starts with the amazing new 2017 Chevy Sonic.
Built to be sleek, efficient, and attractive, the new 2017 Sonic will bring all the efficient power and compact convenience of the Chevy brand into one remarkably modern vehicle. Plus, with all the latest tech standard or available for your entertainment pleasure, you’ll be on the ground floor to Chevy bringing a whole new meaning to the phrase “small car.”
If you’re ready to get in on the fun of the 2017 Sonic, here’s a quick look at what we’re all expecting from this impressive model. If you’re like us, you may just be surprised by how much Chevy has managed to fit in this small, compact model.
Distinct Body Types
A Refreshed and Refined Design
Get ready to forget any preconceived notions you may have had about compact design. This new Sonic, available as a sedan or hatchback, features a refreshed design throughout to give it the sporty look of a performance vehicle without sacrificing the convenience of its smart size.
An Exterior Built Like A Premium Model
Taking cues from globally successful models like the Bolt EV, Cruze, and upcoming 2017 Trax, the 2017 Sonic features a refined front end, including a new hood design, a new front fascia with the classic Chevy bowtie emblazoned in the center, and new lighting elements like standard projector-beam headlamps and available LED daytime running lamps. A variety of wheel sizes – 15, 16, and 17-inch, offer you the opportunity to choose exactly the kind of look you want on your Sonic. Plus, with a new rear fascia and four available colors for your choosing – Orange Burst Metallic, Brimstone, Cajun Red Tintcoat, and Arctic Blue Metallic – you can make your Sonic your own and still be sure to get great modern style, regardless.
A Comfortable – Even Roomy – Compact Cockpit
The interior of the 2017 Chevy Sonic revolves around three main principles: comfort, convenience, and technology. Built to comfortably hold up to five passengers, the Sonic provides plenty of cargo space and comfort amenities to turn any boring drive into a desirable ride. Available heated cloth seats with a new heated steering wheel and power driver’s seat bring tactile luxury into this bold interior design, while a new, detailed gauge cluster that includes an analog speedometer helps to introduce a bit of refinement to the cockpit. Together, these new comfort and convenience features help make the Sonic one of the best passenger experiences on our radar for the 2017 model year.
Built With All Today’s Best Tech
You’ll never roam without entertainment again in the 2017 Sonic, which includes a 7-inch-diagonal infotainment system specially designed to host all your favorite connectivity tech. This includes the latest in mobile connectivity like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto compatibility, and 4G LTE throughout, as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot that reaches up to 50 feet from the vehicle itself – meaning you and your guests can stay connected on the road and never miss a beat just because you’re driving, and keep the party rolling even during those low-key tailgates. Connect up to seven devices at a time – from smartphones to laptops and tablets – and keep the fun flowing no matter where you find yourself. And with additional convenience tech like Keyless Open and Start and available navigation with Google Maps, you may just feel as though you’re stepping into the future with this highly-anticipated new Sonic.
Safety Comes First
Of course, today’s drivers know that, while entertainment and convenience amenities may be a lot more fun to interact with, nothing is more valuable in a new vehicle than top-tier safety tech to keep you out of harm’s way. That’s why the new 2017 Sonic features some of today’s most advanced responsive and preventative safety tech, all working together to help you mitigate damage on the road and prevent it from happening whenever possible.
In the event that something were to happen while piloting your Sonic, advanced seatbelts in every seat, 10 standard airbags surrounding your passengers, and a high-strength steel cage all work together to keep you and your passengers out of harm’s way. Ready to crumple and absorb energy as need be, this system prevents the worst injuries by keeping passengers from jerking suddenly in the event of a collision.
A standard rear-vision camera gives you a better view of what’s around you when pulling out or reversing into or out of a tight space, and available rear park assist helps you stay in the right direction when taking on those tight parallel parks. Working with other advanced safety tech – like advanced Forward Collision Alert and available Lane Departure Warning – you’ll find your Sonic working as hard as you do to make sure you and your passengers are safe on the roads.
Impressively Efficient Performance
The name of the game with compact vehicles is easy efficiency – and in the 2017 Sonic, this seems like second nature. Built with the power of an impressive 1.8-liter I-4 engine with a 5-speed manual transmission, the new Chevy Sonic is capable of pushing out up to 138 horsepower and 125 lb.-ft. of torque. And although the official EPA estimates aren’t out yet, Chevy expects the 2017 Sonic to get the same high fuel economy as the 2016 model – up to 35 miles per gallon highway. The 2017 Sonic will also feature an available 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and available 6-speed automatic or manual transmission, offering enough oomph to push out up to 138 horsepower at what Chevy expects to be a show-stopping 40 miles per gallon highway. With all this get-up-and-go, you’re bound to be satisfied with the power the 2017 Sonic brings to the table.
