Five-Point Inspection: 2012 Chevy Sonic Hatchback 2LT

Five-Point Inspection: 2012 Chevy Sonic Hatchback 2LT

5. One Expensive Subcompact

While getting best-in-class torque, the price tag on the Sonic sits above almost all of its main competitors, many of which have of the same amenities at a lower price. The Hyundai Accent costs slightly less at $14,545 and gets 40 mpg on all models while the Yaris is priced at $14,115 and the Kia Rio comes in at just $13,600. Getting into a base Chevy Sonic will cost you $14,495.

The largest problem with this base price is that for about $2,000 extra you can get a base Cruze. What’s more, a dressed up Sonic can cost as much as a Cruze, giving you good reason to chose something other than a Sonic, even within the Chevy lineup.

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