Chevrolet Sonic 2017 –EXTERIOR
Outside, Chevrolet has made similar changes in Sonic, like it has made in its other cars including the Cruze, Bolt EV, and refreshed 2017 Trax. These include a refined and impressive look, a redesigned hood, a new rear fascia, projector-beam headlamps, and LED daytime running lamps. Four new colors are introduced for 2017 including Orange Burst Metallic, Brimstone, Cajun Red Tintcoat, and Arctic Blue Metallic. The wheel designs have been refreshed though the length is kept same as before.
The car has managed to look modern without the boxy look of some class rivals that points towards its practicality. It is just handsome and capable enough to look good. The redesigned hood flows more neatly from the grille and headlamps, while the headlights meet up with the grille in a continuous horizontal strip. Air dams are also redesigned in both front and in the back end.
Chevrolet Sonic 2017 –INTERIOR
Inside, the car shows its age a little bit more. This is due to the factor that the version of the twin-cockpit it uses points towards larger Chevrolet sedans of a few years ago. The center of the dash curves down through a V-shaped center stack into a console area that wraps around the front-seat riders. There is a new 7.0-inch infotainment system at the center of the dash, which will change the look somewhat for 2017.
The cabin is quiet and composed. Front seats are good and adjustable. However, the back seats are quite tight. This means that it doesn’t offer that much good seat arrangement like in other cars of its category. But anyhow its rear seatbacks can flip forward all the way to expand space. Safety features in the car include a rearview camera system that is now standard across the model line, while parking assist is also available, as well as the forward collision alert and lane departure warning system.

Both produce an output of 138 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque. The engine is smoother, quicker-responding, and simply more fun to drive. You can get either a 6-speed automatic or a manual gearbox.
