Between the two designs, the modern look of the Chevy Sonic five-door hatchback appears several dials more handsome than its four-door sedan counterpart. Maybe it’s the fact the tail lamps appear too big for the body, or that the nose is too stubby. It could be both. But even earlier design attempts at a Sonic sedan had an even more awkward look to it.
Designers felt the need to elongate the four-door Sonic, by stretching the trunk to the point where its longer than the hatch by a highly significant 14.1 inches. In the process, that gave the Sonic sedan 14 cubic-feet of cargo space, or just 1.4 cubic-feet less than the Chevy Cruze. We can’t say we blame the designers, but they could have at least finished the job and proportioned the tail lamps a little better. Eh, maybe they did and it was another budget-based decision.
Maybe we’re just off our rocker. Opine with us in the comment section below!
