Chevrolet presents its Sonic LT hatchback
The price of the novelty is similar, as you will buy Ford Focus ST or Mazda Speed 3 or GTI of Volkswagen.
However, the main full-fledged rivals of this hatchback are Ford Fiesta, Nissan Versa Note and Honda Fit.
The new Chevrolet hatchback will come into the auto market at the end of this year or at the beginning of next year as the model of 2014.
The novelty is equipped with a 1.4-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine, which may produce the power of 138 horsepower with the torque of 148 lb-ft. The basic version has the six-speed manual gearbox and front-wheel drive as standard.
We are glad to know the fuel economy: the fuel consumption in city conditions is 29 mpg, on highways –40 mpg.
The small hatchback has spacious and comfortable interior including nice finishes and used materials. The steering wheel distinguishes in good control and smoothness.
In addition, the carmaker may offer you optional features. For example, 16-inch aluminum wheels painted in black color, a new grille and a spoiler, the upgraded exterior with mirror caps. Besides, buyers can choose a 1.4-liter four-cylinder Ecotec turbo engine DOHC at will. The additional technical features include the lane departure warning system, forward collision alert and the brand’s My Link. Of course, the price will grow from the basic 16,380 dollars to 20,405 dollars in consideration of these advanced features.
