Sonic engineers went through hundreds of suspension variations to discover the right blend of handling and comfort. The result is the amazing agility and athleticism of Sonic. Its standard ECOTEC® 1.8L I-4 engine with 5-speed manual transmission puts the control of driving back in your hands. Sonic engineers took care of business by delivering 138 horsepower and 125 lb.-ft. of torque in the base model. The result? Pure driving fun for you. Or should you decide to go with the 1.4L turbocharged engine, things get even more interesting. Sonic achieved 0–60 mph in less than 8 seconds on the test track.
Whether you’re commuting during the week or going on a long road trip for the weekend, Sonic small cars are ready to take you there. The 1.4 turbocharged engine, standard on the LTZ, Dusk and RS and available on LT, offers a maximum range of up to 485 highway miles on a single tank of gas. It’s all possible thanks to engineering technology in performance and design. The available 1.4L turbocharged engine and 6-speed manual transmission offer an EPA-estimated 40 MPG highway without sacrificing power or athleticism.
