LTZ Turbo review
By jchagtdi on


2013 Chevrolet Sonic LTZ 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


I own a 2013 Sonic LTZ turbo with manual transmission.
This is the quietest, most solid feeling, most fun to drive, and best equipped car you can buy at this price point.
Turbo motor provides great acceleration with excellent fuel economy.
Cabin is extremely comfortable and spacious for a subcompact, even with the sunroof, and cabin materials look richer than they actually are.
MyLInk stereo offers a LOT, but there are no knobs, You must take your eyes off the road to adjust volume or FM tuner.

Best Features

-Built in USA! -Extremely composed, quiet, and solid driving experience -Turbo provides snappy acceleration with outstanding MPG -Great sound from stock stereo -Great ergonomics and comfortable cabin -Perforated heated leatherette seats feel softer and higher quality than real leather. -Shockingly good performance from heater and AC. Enough heat to choke you to death, and enough cold to induce frostbite, even on low settings. Bluetooth audio streaming AND USB/aux input, take your pick -Outstanding dealer experience

Worst Features

-Add real knobs to Mylink radio. Touchscreen input for volume and radio tuning is beyond annoying. -No scan function on radio -Provide more than one setting for heated seats -Instant MPGs are not available in the info display, only average MPG
