What's New For the 2019 Chevy Sonic?

You might think that the 2019 Chevy Sonic is just another ordinary, generic subcompact car, but that's not the case at all. This year, the Sonic gets a variety of amendments to make it sportier, more attractive, and more tech-savvy than ever before. This year, you'll be able to get your Sonic in an all-new exterior color called Shock, which is a head-turning neon green. The Sonic is also released to the market this year with a more powerful engine than it had in previous years, which makes it even that much more fun to drive.

As for technology, standard features in this year's Sonic include a seven-inch infotainment touch-screen display that lets you retrieve messages, make and receive phone calls, connect with your apps, and play your music. Along with the generously-sized screen, highlights of this infotainment system include Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. With each trim level, you'll get even more to look forward to.
