October 16, 2019 RAWAT 0 Comments


The Chevy Sonic is a known name in the segment of subcompact sedans that has ensured a stable market for itself since the year it was launched. Now that Chevrolet has released its 2020 edition with some necessary updates, the manufacturer can expect some expansion in its market as well as some increase in its popularity. But on the other hand, rumors are there that Chevrolet might decide to discontinue this model from the nextyear. To know, if the rumor is true, we asked our nearby Gardendale Chevrolet dealer and they didn’t confirm the news as of now.

With this speculation, that the current 2020 model year of the Chevrolet Sonic could be the last time we are seeing its lineup, we felt like having a quick look at this subcompact sedan and brush up its details.


The Sharp Look

Though the exterior of the Chevrolet Sonic continues to be the same for the 2020 edition, its overall appearance still makes a strong impression on the onlookers. Upfront, the front grille now wears a softer look that reflects an urban taste of the manufacturer. The sharp looking deep fog light moldings continue the aesthetic pattern while the automatic headlights in combination with a pair of daytime running LED lights sprinkle sufficient elements of gorgeousness. 

Special Changes for the 2020 Model Year

Even to look at the 2020 model year of Chevrolet Sonic does not look any different from its earlier versions. The only change in its exterior front is the absence of Orange Burst Metallic and Shock exterior colorsfrom the2020 color palette. But the most significant changes are done at the powertrain front, wherein, a 1.4-liter turbo four-cylinder engineis mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox, as the only standard power option while, Chevrolet decided to forego the manual transmission from the lineup of this year.

Power Details

As we have seen earlier, the same 1.4-liter turbo four-cylinder engine is continuing to power the 2020 lineup of Chevrolet Sonic, that makes 138 of horsepower and 148 lb-ft of torque that relay the power to the front wheels with the help of a six-speed automatic gearbox. Chevrolet has made this power combination as the standard one throughout the lineup.

Performance and Handling

With this power option the 2020 Chevrolet Sonic is now capable of picking a speed of 60 mph from a 0 in about 8.7 seconds. The engine in combination with its only transmission option, deliver excellent power responses that make a consistently comfortable ride, while the drivers are most likely to appreciate its quick and intuitive driving dynamics. The six-speed automatic transmission does perform a smooth gear shift, while, the steering, brakes and suspension team up to execute the aim of ensuring an engaging ride with this near-luxury sedan model from Chevrolet.

The sales team of the Gardendale Chevrolet dealer are however hopeful about a brighter future of this sedan model series that is now well equipped with the new age features, while its nimble driving dynamics have enough reasons to encourage the new drivers to go for this sedan even now.
