Five-Point Inspection: 2012 Chevy Sonic Hatchback 2LT

1. Plenty of Easy to Reach Storage

The Sonic offers tons of convenient places to store your cargo, all within arm’s reach. While the small size of car classifies it as a sub-compact, the amount of places to stash your spare change, phone and drinks are abundant.

While most of the storage spaces are small, they are also all separate, which is a nice departure from the, ‘one big storage spot for everything’ philosophy found in many center consoles. Having driven the car on a long road trip to New York City, it was nice to have individual places for papers and drinks that were far away from the change for toll roads.

In addition to the pair of small cubbies on either side of the radio, there is another storage recess in the lower center console, while each door has a storage pocket and there are two (yes two), glove boxes.

    I can’t believe GM still offers that 1.8L engine. It totally blows.
