Normally, when clicking play on a Regular Car Review, it’s time to cover the youngsters’ ears and throw a quarter in the inappropriate jar. However, that wasn’t the case with the 2013 Chevrolet Sonic.
The Sonic receives a more tame Regular Review treatment, going over specifications, and talking about how the global car has come forward in an ever connected global economy. Why is the Sonic a prime example of this?
It’s a German platform, assembled at the Orion, Michigan plant, with a German designed engine and transmission made in Austria. Oh, and the platform was updated by GM South Korea and GM Australia. Global? Yes, it is.
Overall, the 2013 Sonic walks away relatively unscathed. A solid subcompact with short gearing, and a few hiccups along the way regarding maintenance. Also, we’re shocked to see a base model still came equipped with manual, rolling windows.
