Introduced at the New York Auto Show was the 2017 Chevrolet Sonic, which boasts revised styling and a host of new features.
A restyled front facia hosts new lighting elements (including available LED “signature” lights) and is topped by a revised hood. The rear facia is also new, as are the wheel designs.
Inside, the gauge cluster now incorporates an analog (rather than digital) speedometer. Newly available features include a 7-inch touchscreen, WiFi hotspot, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto, along with power driver seat, heated front seats, heated steering wheel, and keyless access and starting. Available safety features include forward collision alert, lane-departure warning, and rear-obstacle detection, and a rearview camera is newly standard.
The 2017 Chevrolet Sonic is due to go on sale this fall.
Sonic had become somewhat overshadowed in the subcompact class, but these updates put it right back in the hunt.
