2020 Chevrolet Sonic Sedan LT AutoNew Search Select Other Trims
2020 Chevrolet Sonic OverviewThe Chevrolet Sonic comes loaded with personality and is available in enough configurations to suit most buyers.
For starters, buyers can choose between a 5-door hatchback and a 4-door sedan with LS, LT and Premier trims available. Only one engine option is available in 2020; a turbocharged 1.4L 4-cylinder that produces 138 horsepower and a healthy 148 lb-ft of torque. Performance is sprightly, especially when paired with its 6-speed automatic transmission.
The Sonic benefits from an incredibly stiff, steel chassis with MacPherson struts up front and a torsion-beam axle in the rear. Stability control and traction control are standard.
Standard amenities include Bluetooth connectivity, a 7-inch touchscreen, air conditioning, power locks, keyless entry and a 60/40 split-folding rear seat as well. The LT trim adds 15-inch aluminum wheels, heated body-colored mirrors, SiriusXM satellite radio, steering wheel mounted buttons for the cruise control and a nicer 6-speaker stereo system. The top-of-the-line Premier comes with 17-inch aluminum wheels, a Sport exhaust system, a decklid spoiler, unique styling elements around the front and rear of the car, a nicer steering wheel, keyless entry, an enhanced driver information center, nicer floor mats and perforated leather seating surfaces.
Standard safety features include 10 air bags, StabiliTrak electronic stability control with rollover sensor and traction control, anti-lock brakes with electronic brake force distribution and panic assist, OnStar and hill-start assist.
