In the segment of small cars, Chevrolet has a major role to play. Many of the compact car models that are having a broader fanfare are holding the Chevrolet bow on their grilles. The 2020 Chevrolet Sonic is one such model that is known for serving an all-rounded purposes that a crossover could have provided. In this small family car the automaker made sure that it will look unique whether it dresses up as sedan or as hatchback. Then the entire 2020 lineup is given attractive packages of features to make their buyers have no regrets.

As A Crossover Contender

At the showroom premise of the Jacksonville Chevy dealership we also overheard a conversation among two test drivers that the 2020 Chevrolet Sonic doesn’t only look young but also drives younger than what its expected from its age, thanks to the evolving driving dynamics that the automaker has kept installing all these years.

When we asked the buyers they expressed their satisfaction in the amount of value they received while most of them were delighted to talk about the pinch of driving fun, each of them experienced. The grin in the buyers’ faces made us curious to know more about this Chevrolet small car model and after experiencing a test drive ourselves, we got inspired enough to drive it home. We are sharing what made us buy the 2020 Chevrolet Sonic, and would like to know if you would have chosen the 2020 Chevrolet Sonic over a compact crossover? Do let us know in your valuable comments.

Overall Package

Chevrolet packed the 2020 versions of Sonic with as much value as you can expect from a small car when we are living in the age of SUV crossovers. We were simply overwhelmed by its safety scores, while whoever of us sat behind its wheels were happy about the decent drive fun that the 2020 Chevrolet Sonic provided.

When we saw the 2020 Chevrolet Sonic models from a closer range for the first time, we found it more attractive and smart than models like Kia Rio. In terms of drive and ride quality, we could find its dynamics working with much sharper responses than many of its closest rivals.

Power and Mileage

Chevrolet allows the buyers to drive the 2020 Sonic models with turbo power as one of the upgrading options. We wanted to talk about it first as we know how much the passionate drivers crave for it.

As per the Chevy dealer near Jacksonville, in both hatchback and sedan body styles, Chevrolet assigns a 1.4-liter turbo-4 engine replacing the earlier one, as the current one can make out 138 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque after mating to a six speed automatic transmission, that again is a replacement for the earlier 5 speed manual.

What is appreciable of this powertrain is the reasonably good mileage counting an EPA rated 29 mpg from a combined trip, and surprisingly good handling and maneuvering ability around the tricky corners and turns.
