2015 Chevrolet Sonic

2015 CHEVROLET SONIC: Chevrolet’s popular Sonic subcompact makes a few enhances to the MY2015. A new exterior, Blue Velvet, has been added to the color palette, the 1.4-liter engine is now standard on LTZ models, and OnStar with 4G LTE and standard built-in Wi-Fi hotspot includes 3GB/three-month data trial. The Chevy is built in America, comes in two body styles: a four-door sedan and a five-door hatchback in LS, LT, LTZ and RS levels. For 2015, new standard and available items include a rear vision camera, MyLink radio, forward collision and lane departure alert systems, tilt-sliding sunroof, rear decklid spoiler and front fog lamps. There are 10 exterior paint colors to select from including these newly added hues: Ashen Gray metallic, Red Hot, and Cool Blue. The Sonic exterior styling incorporates raked body lines, motorcycle-inspired round head and taillights, rear door handles in C-pillar (five door), and wheels-at-the-corners proportions for distinctive appearance. Power to the front wheels is supplied by Ecotec four-cylinder engines, both generating 138 horsepower. The 1.4-liter turbo comes with the six-speed manual, while the 1.8L can be equipped with a five-speed gearbox. A six-speed automatic is an option on both powerplants, and all trannys feature aggressive final-drive ratios. GM engineers who also worked on the Corvette tuned the Sonic's ride and handling, giving it more direct feel. Sonic models seat five passengers, and come equipped with OnStar that uses GPS and cellular phone technology. Other check list items include MyLink with Apple’s Siri Eyes Free for customers with a compatible iPhone running iOS6, as well as apps for BringGo in-dash navigation; TuneIn, which provides access to 70,000 global radio stations; and apps for Pandora internet radio and Stitcher Smart Radio. Interior colors and combinations include Jet Black/Dark Titanium; Jet Black/Brick; Dark Pewter/Dark Titanium and Jet Black. Maximum cargo volume on the sedan is 14.9 cu.ft. and 47.7 cu. ft with rear seat folded flat on the hatchback.
