brand new sonic
By igelbuki on
2012 Chevrolet Sonic LS 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
Picked up a new 1.4 liter, turbo today. The drive home was minimal hiway, mainly a 170 mile route on state back roads and through small villages. The car handles very nicely, and is very comfortable front seat for over 3 hrs. first drive. I've read a number of online reviews and the pickup was as advertised with the turbo. With a real mix of driving I averaged just over 37 mpg, and it was in cold weather. The controls are pretty intuitive, and the simple drivers side arm rest a small but nice feature ( plenty of smaller cars lack this ). Plenty of storage places all around. I'm hoping to add to this review after it is broken in.
6 spd tranmission really cuts the engine revs.
Drivers side armrest. Very comfortable seats. handling is precise.
No instant gas milage readout. The review didn't allow for putting in 6 spd manual turbo hatch, on this sight
