Stylish Features of the 2017 Chevrolet Sonic
Many drivers become interested in the 2017 Chevrolet Sonic because they want a small vehicle with a roomy interior. Once you experience the new Sonic in person, though, you’ll find that it has a lot more than a comfortable cabin. Look for these stylish features of the 2017 Sonic when you visit your dealership.
Sedan and Hatchback Exterior Features
Chevrolet makes the 2017 Sonic in sedan and hatchback versions. No matter which one you choose, you get a streamlined exterior with an aggressive front end. The base LS has some impressive exterior features that you usually find in upper trim levels. Some stand out features include the Sonic’s LED daytime running lights and remote locks.
Choosing the LT trim gives you even more features, such as alloy wheels and chrome accents. The chrome offers a subtle style that makes the Sonic a bit flashier without looking comically fancy.
The Sonic comes standard with 15-inch steel wheels, but you can upgrade to 16-inch alloy wheels by adding the RS package. The RS package also gives you rear sport spoiler, front fog lamps, and numerous other features.
Technology Made for Today’s Drivers
Technology matters a lot to today’s drivers. Chevrolet has loaded the Sonic with the types of technology features that keep passengers entertained and safe.
The LS comes standard with a 7-inch touchscreen interface that puts you in control of the four-speaker sound system. You can play content from a USB port or an auxiliary jack. The Sonic also comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto so you can stream music, podcasts, and other recordings from your smartphone. With these features, you never have to suffer through another boring commute.
Chevrolet has also put a lot of technology into the Sonic’s safety features. Standard features include traction control, stability control, and antilock brakes. The base Sonic even comes with a rearview camera and OnStar. OnStar gives you automatic crash notifications and stolen vehicle assistance. If someone manages to steal your Sonic, OnStar will give authorities the information they need to track down the missing car.
The Most Attractive Feature is the 2017 Sonic’s Price
Chevrolet packs a lot of attractive features into the Sonic. You may think that this would force the company to charge a hefty price for the vehicle. In fact, Chevy works hard to keep the Sonic as affordable as possible.
The base Sonic sedan has a starting price of just $15,145. The hatchback has a slightly higher starting price, but at $17,580 it’s still a great deal. Even if you choose the highest trim level with an ECOTEC 1.4-liter turbocharged engine and a six-speed automatic transmission, the MSRP starts at $22,090. The ECOTEC engine gets an EPA-estimated 27 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway, so you’ll save money by avoiding frequent stops at gas stations.
Chevrolet’s designers and engineers obviously spent a lot of time and energy making the 2017 Sonic as desirable as possible. Schedule a test drive so you experience the Sonic’s attractiveness for yourself.
