As much as I like our long-term Chevy Sonic Turbo, there's no denying it has limited appeal. Every time I run through the gears (well, maybe the first four... 5th and 6th are darned tall), I remember that not everybody likes to run through the gears.

However, back in April, Chevrolet began offering a six-speed automatic transmission with the 1.4-liter turbo engine. This month, Senior Editor Bill Visnic spent a week with an automatic-equipped Sonic Turbo. Does the automatic blunt this warm hatch's performance, broaden its reach or a little of both?
