The 2017 Chevy Sonic brings a notable refresh to an already-solid range of subcompact cars. Sure, opinions may be divided on its updated styling, but one would truly be hard pressed to complain about the plethora of newly-added comfort and convenience features, including:
- Heated steering wheel (new) and heated front seats (previously available)
- New MyLink infotainment system with:
- Standard 7-inch diagonal color touchscreen
- Keyless open and (push-button) start (previously not available)
- Rear park assist (previously unavailable)
- Higher degree of refinement thanks to a new detailed gauge cluster with an analog speedometer (previously a digital cluster)
As unbelievable as it may seem, you can get all that in a fun-to-drive, fuel-efficient, and affordable mainstream subcompact… one that just a few short years ago (in 2012) replaced the Aveo. Kudos to Chevy for coming such a long way in this segment.
