2012 Chevrolet Sonic LTZ: Child Seats Fit
September 4, 2012
This weekend I put both car seats in the Sonic. Nearest the Camera is a Britax Boulevard -- a convertible child seat which must be one of the largest on the market. In the forward-facing position it fit fine. And you can see that the four-year-old had enough leg room once she was in the seat. The front seat is adjusted to my preferred driving postion and I'm 5'9" with a 32-inch inseam.
On the other side is a Graco Snap N Go infant seat, which is, of course, rear facing. Its depth forced my wife to sit closer to the dash than she would normally, but she still had ample leg room.
Honestly, the compromise in comfort for all is no worse than we'd make in a Mazda 3, which is a bigger car in the next segment up.
Another reason to like the Sonic. Nice work, GM.
