Quick Look

The 2015 Chevrolet Sonic makes another bold step away from the maligned Aveo predecessor, delivering solid performance, nice design and several useful features. The 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine is also impressive, putting out 138 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque.




Full Review

The 2015 Chevrolet Sonic is the fourth iteration of this subcompact, which can be configured as either a five-door hatchback or four-door sedan. By this point, its predecessor, the clunky Chevrolet Aveo, is all but a distant memory, making the Sonic the best subcompact Chevrolet has ever produced for Canada. It delivers decent performance, a good-looking outer body and plenty of high-tech features.

On the outside, the 2015 Sonic is far more reserved in terms of its design than other well-known subcompacts, like the Ford Fiesta and Toyota Yaris. However, the good thing about this kind of design is the fact that it’s not particularly polarizing, so while you won’t exactly fall in love with it, you won’t hate it either. You may also unearth some nice details on the rear door handles in the black areas of the C-pillars, which allow the vehicle to look more like a two-door – at a glance, anyway. On top of that, all models – except the base LS trim – come with aluminum-alloy wheels and a decent selection of eye-catching colours.

Step inside and you’ll find an imaginative cabin that makes the Sonic stand out. You’ll notice almost immediately the motorcycle-style gauge cluster that’s one of the most unique things on a car’s dashboard. But the biggest appeal of the cabin is that nothing looks unfinished or low-quality, with every little detail having received enough care to feel special. The only issue that we’d like to mention is the fact that the cupholders between the front seats are little too far to the back. Speaking of the back – the Sonic gets some of the roomiest rear seats in the subcompact segment. The highlight for is the presence of the dual glovebox setup, with the smaller, upper glovebox containing a USB port to connect your iOS, Android or any other mobile device.

Under the hood, the 2015 Sonic can contain one out of two possible powertrains, but neither is particularly exceptional in our books. The base engine is a 1.8-litre four-cylinder that produces 138 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque. If you have a few extra thousand to spare, you can go for the 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder that has happens to be faster, while also delivering superior fuel economy. It’s able to generate 138 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque, while being connected to a six-speed manual transmission. The 1.8-litre engine is combined with a five-speed manual transmission, but there’s also an option to replace it with a six-speed automatic, which you can do with the 1.4-litre engine too. All the transmission are fine as far we are concerned, while the engines are solid – though not exceptional.

Overall, the 2015 Chevrolet Sonic is a fantastic vehicle that successfully manages to avoid cutting corners. It’s relatively fast, good-looking and comfortable. If you want a more flamboyant subcompact, then Ford or Toyota might be a better fit for you. However, if you’re just looking for a car that has a “heart of gold” on the inside, then the Sonic is a fantastic choice.

Power and Performance:

The 2015 Chevrolet Sonic uses the same pair of engines and transmissions you'll find in its bigger brother, the Chevy Cruze. It drives well for the segment, thanks to good steering feel, and an available sports-tuned suspension in the RS model.

The desirable option is the turbocharged 1.4-liter four, which is more refined and flexible, delivers more torque, and is more fuel-efficient to boot. It elevates the Sonic and makes it feel closer to a premium vehicle, against the rough, econocar character of the 1.8. The smaller engine is also rated at 138 hp, and our only quibble is that throttle response sometimes feels like it lags the input for a fraction of a second.

Interiors and Special Features:

There's a lot of fresh thinking inside the 2015 Chevy Sonic and we like it, starting with the motorcycle-inspired gauge cluster that's unlike anything else on a car's dashboard. Another strong point is that there are no weak points, no spots that look like they just didn't quite care enough to finish it. A few things worth mentioning are that the cupholders are good but placed too far to the rear between the front seats. The rear seat is one of the roomiest in the subcompact segment. And we really liked the dual glovebox arrangement, which is particularly thoughtful for those who use a dedicated music player, with the USB port located in the smaller, upper glove box.

Safety features:

All Sonic models come standard with an impressive array of airbags, including dual front, front knee, front side, rear side and full-length side curtain airbags. Traction and stability control systems are also included.

The optional advanced safety package adds Forward Collision Alert and a Lane Departure warning system. It is available on all trim levels except the base model.
