Chevrolet Sonic Review for 2016 Model Year

Since its start, Sonic has redefined what it means to be a compact car. It refuses to be pigeonholed, defying common stereotypes regarding size and performance. For example, while its dimensions are compact, it doesn't sacrifice cabin and passenger space like some might think. Last year, editors said even taller folks can find a comfortable driving position and that Sonic has one of the largest trunks in the segment.

Test drive a 2016 Chevy Sonic in Lincoln, Nebraska, and you'll see what they're talking about. The sedan offers greater trunk space than cars larger in size, like the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla, while the hatchback delivers more max cargo space (with the back seats folded down) than competing models like the Ford Fiesta. At the bottom of our 2016 Chevy Sonic review, there's a link to our Dare to Compare tool, which includes third-party comparison charts so you can see how Sonic stacks up to these and other car models when it comes to cargo space, fuel economy, safety and much more. Whether you choose the sedan or hatchback, Sonic excels in all of these areas.

It's the only car in its class with 10 standard airbags, and thanks to a series of new structure changes, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has awarded it with a coveted Top Safety Pick title. Additionally, when properly equipped it offers up to 40 mpg highway according to EPA estimates. Performance is notable too, which is thanks to the car's responsive steering and available turbocharged engine. If you want a little more fun behind the wheel, there's also a Sonic RS trim that gets upgraded disc brakes, a rear spoiler, sport body kit and specially tuned suspension.

What's more, the 2016 Chevy Sonic in Lincoln offers outstanding connectivity features. An OnStar Basic Plan comes standard for five years, along with six months of OnStar Directions and Connections. Plus, the OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot is included with a 3-month/3GB data trial. Its connection has been tested by many sources and 2016 Chevy Sonic reviews say it works excellently, offering uninterrupted Internet service for up to seven devices.

If you decide to purchase or lease a new 2016 Sonic at Husker Chevrolet, you'll also receive two years or 24,000 miles of scheduled maintenance for no extra charge, as well as 5 years or 100,000 miles of roadside assistance. Contact us for more details!
