Power

When you decide to go with a smaller vehicle, every bit of performance matters more. You will find more of the power you need to confidently handle both city and highway driving in the 2016 Chevy Sonic. A standard 1.8L four-cylinder engine puts out 138 hp and 125 lb-ft of torque. A more-powerful optional turbocharged 1.4L four-cylinder also puts out 138 hp but raises torque levels to 148 lb-ft of torque.

For the Honda Fit, a standard 1.5L four-cylinder puts out just 130 hp and 114 lb-ft of torque, and this is the only engine option available.

Features

Both of these cars are available with a long list of standard features like Bluetooth, cruise control, and keyless entry. However, there is one feature that is exclusive to the 2016 Chevrolet Sonic, and that’s OnStar telematic system. Standard in all Sonic trims, this system provides important roadway protections like automatic crash notification, connection with roadside assistance providers, remote unlocking, and even stolen vehicle tracking.

It also doubles as a 4G LTE connection that extends high-speed wireless internet access to up to seven devices in or around the Sonic. Finally, it provides turn-by-turn navigation instructions. All of this goes to making OnStar one of the most versatile in-car technologies available right now, especially for an introductory trim level!

Versatility

The 2016 Chevrolet Sonic is here to fulfill customers’ precise specifications, which is why it comes available in both sedan and hatchback formats. On the other hand, the 2016 Honda Fit is only available as a hatchback, giving consumers less to choose from.
