ReviewitOnline Ratings are based on a number of factors including reputation, appearance, model age, engine & other comparative aspects.

It is small but it does not mean that it can't dance. Prepare to be surprised, because the Chevrolet Sonic Hatchback has a similar engine to the Chevrolet Cruze, its big brother. It is fully-equipped with a 1.8-liter inline-4 engine and a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. When you say Chevrolet Cruze, it's all about electric steering lightness with precision and accuracy for smooth handling and driving. No wonder, this type of technology was also used for the Sonic Hatchback. This thoughtful engine delivers 138 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque. Of course, it is the fuel economy that really gets drivers excited, as it averages 26 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway. Those that enjoy a little more pep under the hood will opt for the turbocharged option that delivers the same horsepower, but boasts 148 pound-feet of torque. Zero to 60 mph takes an average of 8.8 seconds, which is quite impressive for its class.

When it comes to safety, the 2012 Chevrolet Sonic Hatchback certainly delivers. Just a few of the many safety features that come standard include child seat anchors, emergency brake assist, daytime running lights, dusk sensing headlamps, post-collision safety system, electronic brakeforce distribution and tire pressure monitoring. It was rated \"Good\" in frontal-offset, side-impact and roof-strength safety tests. If that's not enough, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety voted the Sonic Hatchback as the \"Top Safety Pick.\"

The Chevrolet Sonic Hatchback is a vehicle that has it all. The body is futuristic, headlamps seem to smile at you and the wheels will catch the attention of anyone. The cabin is livable and handling is crisp. If that's not enough, the sticker price puts it in anyone's budget!
