The new 2017 Chevrolet Sonic is offering promising features that are simply hard to resist. Not only the ride has a unique and attractive design, it also comes with powerful engine and impressive performance – not to mention also smooth ride and comfortable setting. But Chevrolet is offering a lot of positive improvements with the additional technologies and also fresh designs. And the company is offering two different variants: the sedan and the hatchback. And it is not a really surprising thing to see those two designs and appearance look similar to the Trax, the crossover variant, which is offered and has experienced a refreshed look earlier within this same year.
2017 Chevrolet Sonic: The Things to Like
Chevy is pretty confident with their newest productions with the sedan and hatchback – and they come prepared with the impressive engine arrangement. Within such a compact design, there is agility, efficiency, and practicality. The four turbocharged engine with the 1.8 liter capacity has become the standard arrangement – with the manual 5 or 6-speed transmission or the automatic 6 speed transmission. There is another four turbocharged engine with 1.4 liter capacity paired with the manual or auto 6 speed transmission. There is also new infotainment system with 7.0 inch size and LTE 4G connecity with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay technology and also the onboard WiFi system.
Despite the many improvements that Chevy has made for their 2017 Chevrolet Sonic, there is nothing much changing under the hood. Of course, the outer appearance is added and enhanced and the interior cabin is improved in comfort. But expect the same power and functionality from the ‘same old’ Sonic.
2017 Chevrolet Sonic Design
The overall look of the new Sonic represents the unique character of the vehicle although there are some minor changes and updates. The front side fascia is new, along with the headlights and the hood – not to mention also the optional accent LED lights with smaller grille. On the back, the taillights and rear side fascia are redesigned although there hasn’t been any significant changes of the new design and the old one.
For the 2017 Chevrolet Sonic, there will be different colors, including Orange Metallic Burst, Red Cajun Tintcoat, and Blue Arctic Metallic. Newer sizes on the wheels are offered with 15 inches size, along with the 16 and also the 17-inches.
2017 Chevrolet Sonic Trims
For the sedan lines, the LT and LS will be available for this ride although the LTZ is now called as the Premier. Meanwhile, there will be a slight change for the hatchback. In the past, Chevy is offering the LT, LS, LTZ, and the RS. Now, the RS will be a hatchback and it will be made only in the Premier and LT trims.
2017 Chevrolet Sonic Release Date and Price
A lot of people are hoping that Chevy won’t be changing the price factor. If it happens, the sedan LS with manual transmission is likely sold at $16,000 and it can go up to $23,000 for the RS line. This 2017 Chevrolet Sonic should start hitting dealerships around fall.
