2012 Chevrolet Sonic Long Term Road Test

2012 Chevrolet Sonic LTZ: Gassing Off

June 05, 2012


The scent of the Chevrolet Sonic's interior does not exactly recall the rich aroma of a Connolley leather interior from a classic Jaguar.

But neither does it recall a bad day in Houston.

As a guy who lived through the 1970s, when the vinyl interior of cheap cars would coat the inside of your windows with a film of chemicals for about the first year of ownership or so, probably I'd just crack the windows of the Chevy whenever it's parked outside on a warm day and leave it at that.

The truth is, I've been in new cars that smelled much worse than this.

And no, I don't miss those 1970s Isuzus at all.
