2012 Chevy Sonic LTZ: One of Ward's 10 Best Interiors

April 17, 2012


A few months ago I posed that the interior of our 2012 Chevy Sonic was disjointed. Some of you agreed with me, some of you did not. Some of you said I was too old to get it, others thought I needed to grow up. This is what happens when things like taste and preference are brought into a conversion. People disagreeing with me is part of the game.

Those of you who think I was wrong can take stock in the fact that Ward's Autos has just named the 2012 Chevy Sonic as the recipient of one of the publication's "10 Best Interiors" awards.

Ward's like the Sonic's "two glove boxes, storage bins on either side of the center stack, a bottle holder in each front door and three cupholders between the two front seats." Ward's also liked the "gear-shaped tachometer and asymmetrical cluster" saying it provides the driver with information "and does it with flair."

One man's flair is another man's distraction. Can't argue with the cupholders in that car, though.
