TRAVIS LANGNESS: I'm Travis Langness, Edmunds editor, with an Expert Rundown of the 2017 Chevrolet Sonic. On the outside, the new Chevy Sonic gets some updated styling, new LED running lights and projector headlights. On the inside, a rear view camera's now standard across the lineup, which is nice. And the new seven-inch touchscreen, which comes with Chevy's MyLink infotainment system, that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, is standard grade in this class vehicle. The cabin's pretty spacious for this class vehicle as well. Lots of headroom up front and in the back. Excellent crash test safety scores. The ride quality's pretty good. Overall, you get a lot more from this little car than you expect. And it's also pretty unique in this class that it's fun to drive. A lot of cars in this class feel humdrum, very point A to point B transportation. But we actually enjoy driving the Sonic, especially with the optional turbocharged engine. The base engine doesn't get great fuel economy. It's rated at 30 MPG combined, which is OK. But top rivals do a lot better in this class. Cabin materials are kind of low rent. It's what you expect from this class. But in context with the rest of the car, it seems out of place. The car drive so well, and it looks nice on the outside. But on the inside, there's a lot of hard plastic to look at and it surrounds a nice usable interface on the touchscreen, so it kind of throws you off. Competitors like the Honda Fit and the Ford Fiesta and maybe even the Kia Rio are going to have a little bit better interior quality. But the bottom line is the Chevy Sonic stands out for its roomy interior, lots of standard features, and it's even fun to drive, especially with the optional turbocharged engine. For more reviews of key competitors, go to YouTube and check out more of the Edmunds Expert Rundowns.
