2017 Chevrolet Sonic
AMERICA’S BEST NO-WORRIES SUBCOMPACT JUST GOT A LITTLE ZIP AND A LOT OF STYLE: INTRODUCING THE 2017 CHEVY SONIC
The upcoming 2017 Chevrolet Sonic is a subcompact hatchback that’s designed for people who want an affordable, easy to maintain car that can be used for almost any situation. An effortlessly reconfigured interior and city-friendly dimensions make it a perfect fit for picking up antique vinyls, dropping equipment off at softball practice, driving cross-country with some friends, or simply getting to an amazing new job offer on time. There is a bit more to the 2017 Sonic than just its adaptability, however, as an available 1.4L turbocharged engine and redesigned body give it more athleticism and style than what’s expected for its class, while available built-in 4G LTE WiFi® hotspot capability allows it to serve as an impromptu, mobile office or entertainment center. Though it’s set to arrive at Ray Chevrolet in the summer of 2016, what’s already known about the new Chevy Sonic is already quite surprising.
NEW 2016 CHEVROLET SONIC FEATURES:
- A standard 1.8L EcoTec® engine, with a turbocharged 1.4L motor available that’s both fuel efficient and capable of snapping out 138 horsepower
- Smooth, simplified shifting with either the available 6-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission
- Seating for 5, with rear 60/40 split-folding seats that can be easily configured to carry a full load of passengers or a variety of cargo, and a power driver’s seat that’s the first in its class
- A completely refreshed exterior, with a new fascia that was inspired by high performance models in the 2017 Chevy model lineup
- Safety that’s truly impressive due to a standard high-strength steel safety cage, 10 air bags, and a rear vision camera, with a Driver Confidence Package that includes Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert and Rear Park Assist available.
- A new 7-inch touchscreen that’s compatible with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, with a built-in 4G LTE WiFI® hotspot that can provide Internet access to mobile devices when activated
IT HAS TO BE ADMITTED… THE NEW 2017 CHEVY SONIC IS A SUBCOMPACT THAT WAS DESIGNED TO LOOK COOL AND BE FUN TO DRIVE!
Subcompact hatchbacks are supposed to be highly adaptable, fuel efficient workhorses, right? Well, yes, but there’s no reason why they can’t also have some style. That’s why the 2017 Chevy Sonic underwent an extensive body facelift that saw the introduction of new headlamps, sporty side air curtains that are deeper, more sharply angled, and richer in detail, and a horizontally-split grille that aggressively projects forward. New lines have also been added to the side panels, while an array of new colors, including Orange Burst Metallic, Brimstone, Cajun Red Tintcoat, and Arctic Blue Metallic, have been included in the available palette.
In terms of performance, the new 2017 Chevy Sonic that’s coming to Ray Chevrolet, which is the official Fox Lake Chevy dealer, is fitted with a standard 1.8L EcoTec® motor, however it will also be available with a turbocharged 1.4L engine that can snap out 138 horsepower while sipping out a projected 40 MPG highway. With performance stats like that and the new look taken together, there’s no other choice but to admit that the new 2017 Sonic is an efficient workhorse that’s also fun to own and drive.
THE NEW 2017 CHEVY SONIC INCLUDES INTERIOR FEATURES THAT ARE UNIQUE TO ITS CLASS
A well-planned layout and standard 60/40 split-folding seats make it easy to turn the 2017 Chevy Sonic into an ‘Everything Transporter’, however the engineers at GM included a few interior extras for this model year. A class-exclusive power driver’s seat is one such goodie, while available heated cloth seats, multiple trim options, and a new 7-inch touchscreen multimedia center that’s compatible with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ are others. The new 2017 Sonic that’s arriving at Chevy dealers this summer also features a built-in 4G LTE WiFi® hotspot that, when activated, enables everyone in the car to access the Internet through their own smartphones, tablets, and laptops. Combined, these and other features make the 2017 Sonic the ultimate car for summer road trips.
IMMENSE SAFETY FOR A SUBCOMPACT CAR DEFINES THE 2017 SONIC
The 2017 Chevy Sonic is designed to fit into tight spots, but it’s big on safety. A standard high-strength steel safety cage, rear back up camera, and 10 air bags give it impressive basic safety, while an available Driver Confidence Package adds advanced technologies that include Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning, and Rear Park Assist to the mix. The result is an affordable car that protects its passengers with multiple layer of preventative and mitigating safety features.
