Vehicle2012 Chevrolet Sonic LS 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewPicked 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.
Best Features6 spd tranmission really cuts the engine revs. Drivers side armrest. Very comfortable seats. handling is precise.
Worst FeaturesNo instant gas milage readout. The review didn't allow for putting in 6 spd manual turbo hatch, on this sight
