The 2015 Chevy Sonic was built to make an impression, and the exterior design accomplishes that with aplomb. Sporty accents like exposed headlamps, motorcycle-inspired tail-lamps, and a dual-port grille all enhance the sporty feel of the Sonic, and the standard alloy wheels belie the economy price of this hatchback, showing that no corners were cut at the factory. Add all of that up with the sharp, coupe-like design of the doors, and you have a slick little number sure to turn heads across town.
The engines on offer for the Sonic have something for everyone. Looking for an agile ride that puts all the control in your hands? Then check out the ECOTEC 1.8L I-4 engine, which offers 138-hp and a 5-speed manual transmission for a fun, sporty ride. Are you more interested in a fuel-efficient block that can go the distance? The available 1.4L turbocharged engine with 6-speed manual transmission is capable of a remarkable 40-MPG highway, without sacrificing any athleticism.
Interior Features and Design
A modern driver needs features to match, and the 2015 Sonic delivers. The available 4G LTE Wi-Fi provides a mobile Internet hot spot, so you can stay connected even when you’re off the grid. The 7-inch touch screen comes with Chevrolet MyLink, which puts all your entertainment controls at easy reach, and the available Siri Eyes Free feature lets you communicate with your iPhone through voice commands, allowing you to send messages without taking your eyes off the road. Combine all that with a sharp dashboard and premium comforts like heated leatherette seats, and you get a cockpit worthy of any driver.
Advanced Safety Technologies
The Chevy Sonic was named a 2015 Top Safety Pick by the IIHS, and with its comprehensive selection of safety technologies and features, it’s easy to see why. The Sonic offers a full suite of advanced preventative systems, such as Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning, as well as visibility systems like a rear vision camera, so you can better prevent accidents. And if a collision does occur, you’ll be protected by 10 standard airbags, the most of any other car in its class. In addition, the OnStar Directions & Connections Plan helps emergency responders pinpoint your location and come to your aid quickly.

- Kelley Blue Book: “There’s a lot of fresh thinking inside the 2015 Chevy Sonic and we like it, starting with the motorcycle-inspired gauge cluster that’s unlike anything else on a car’s dashboard.”
- Edmunds: “Inside, the Sonic has impressed us with its sensible, user-friendly control layout and standard 4G WiFi hotspot capability. The Sonic offers alluring options, too, including an up-to-date touchscreen interface.”
