Chevrolet shows off the sporty new 2017 Sonic

Autos Apr 05, 2016 Port Perry Star

Chevrolet has introduced the 2017 Sonic – a more expressive, sporty take on the brand’s fun-to-drive small car.

It offers big technologies such as a new MyLink system with claimed segment-exclusive Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and a fresh exterior with new LED signature lighting.

The updated styling complements new comfort and convenience features such as an available heated steering wheel and a standard seven-inch-diagonal colour touchscreen for the new MyLink system.

Rear Park Assist is also new, adding to one of the most comprehensive safety packages in the segment.

Like the new Trax, Sonic brings new, younger customers to the brand, with almost 20 per cent of them younger than 35 and is one of Chevrolet’s top vehicles for first-time new buyers.

The 2017 Sonic goes on sale this fall, offered in LS, LT and Premier trims on sedan models. The hatchback returns exclusively in RS guise, offered in LT and Premier trims. An RS package is also available on the sedan.

Refined design

Sonic’s athletic exterior has an entirely new, expressive look echoing the global Chevrolet cues seen on vehicles such as the Cruze, Bolt EV and 2017 Trax.

There are also new 15-, 16- and 17-inch wheel designs and four new exterior colours offered in 2017: Orange Burst Metallic, Brimstone, Cajun Red Tintcoat and Arctic Blue Metallic (late availability).

Interior and technology enhancements

The Sonic’s standard Ecotec 1.8-litre engine is estimated to deliver similar fuel economy numbers for the 2017 model year, however official fuel consumption estimates are not yet available. 

Sonic’s fun-driving spirit returns with an available Ecotec 1.4-litre turbo engine, backed by a six-speed automatic or manual transmission. It is rated at 138 hp.
