The sporty new Chevrolet Sonic 5-door is the perfect companion for the city streets with sleek, track-inspired styling that compliments its unique silhouette. The technologically advanced Sonic 1.6 is equipped with an E85 alternative fuel compatible ECOTEC engine, making it an instantly responsive yet environmentally friendly way to navigate the city.
The Sonic’s responsive 1.4-litre ECOTEC or 1.6-liter ECOTEC FlexFuel engines feature a Multi Point Fuel Injection (MPFI) system and is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission with Driver Shift Control. The Sonic is in its element in the city where driving conditions are often unpredictable and require access to power at all times.
Euro-Ride Tuning suspension
Take complete control of the road with agile and precise handling, thanks to the Sonic’s Euro-Ride Tuning suspension. Further support comes from the independent MacPherson struts up front, and coil-spring shock absorbers, anti-roll bars and rear torsion beams that are set out in a ‘V’ formation. All of which comes together to give you complete control, at all times.
6-speed Automatic transmission
At the touch of a button the driver can activate Driver Shift Control (DSC), a system that takes the Sonic out of its smooth-shifting 6-speed automatic transmission mode and puts it into semi-manual mode, allowing you to fine-tune each and every gear shift.
Chevrolet Sonic is loaded with labor saving and boredom beating technology including the new Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system, centered on an integrated 7” touchscreen. The infotainment system allows you to connect your smartphone or other Bluetooth devices to the car, meaning that you have instant access to unlimited entertainment possibilities from music to movies.
Beyond entertainment, the system can also control more practical features like vehicle settings and even hands-free phone calls. Steering wheel mounted controls means that your hands stay on the steering wheel while controlling the phone and radio settings.
The Sonic’s innovative features continues on the exterior with an auto rain sensor that activates the windscreen wipers when it starts to rain and auto-headlamps that turn on automatically in low light conditions. The headlamps also feature the ‘Follow-Me-Home’ system that keeps the headlights lit for thirty seconds after turning the car off, to make sure the path to the front door is properly illuminated.
The stylish dual-cockpit design features two-tone upholstery and an ice-blue illuminated instrument cluster featuring digital and analogue dials. Space is used ingeniously inside the Sonic to ensure that your ride is as comfortable as possible; the versatile 60:40 rear seating formation folds to allows you to adapt cabin space while the storage spaces throughout the car allow you to conveniently keep possessions within reach at all times.
From the stylish auto headlamps and the 16-inch alloys housed in extra wide wheel arches to the sleek rear lights, the aerodynamically sculpted Chevrolet Sonic looks equally ready for the track or the city streets.
Chevrolet Sonic comes with a comprehensive safety system that includes driver and front passenger airbags and a reinforced frame (Body Frame Integral) that is designed to resist bending forces in the event of a collision. Should a collision occur, seatbelts pretensioners would act at the moment of impact to keep your firmly in place, minimizing unnatural movement and whiplash. In the interest of prevention, Sonic also comes with an advanced braking system using Electronic Brake-Force Distribution (EBD) to evenly distribute braking force and maintain optimum control based on weight and road conditions and a 4-channel Anti-lock braking System (ABS) to stop the wheels becoming locked when braking suddenly or firmly.
