1.4 L Four-Cylinder

Transmission Choices

Depending on engine chosen, drivers can pick a 5-speed manual transmission, 6-speed manual transmission, or 6-speed automatic transmission for the ideal driving experience

Impressive Efficiency 

In recent EPA testing, the optional 1.4 L Turbo delivered up to 37 mpg/highway fuel efficiency, making it a leader in its class.

Other Performance Features

The Chevy Sonic performance isn’t limited to potent, efficient engines. Engineers have put a lot of time and effort into ensuring the compact car handles exactly as it should:

  • StabiliTrak: The standard stability control system automatically adjusts the brakes and torque to ensure even power to all four wheels, regardless of driving conditions.
  • Suspension Options: While most Sonic trims are equipped with a Touring suspension for a smooth ride, selected trims get a Sport suspension for a perfectly balanced ride on challenging roads.
  • Hill Start Assist: The standard Hill Start Assist system keeps the brakes engaged for a moment after the driver releases the pedal to keep the vehicle from rolling backward.
  • Four-wheel ABS: Antilock braking provides exceptional power to all four wheels during emergency braking maneuvers for better handling and enhanced safety.
