2016 Chevrolet Sonic Review & Comparison For Kansas City, MO Shoppers

Kansas City Chevrolet Dealer Researches the New Sonic

If you've ever had any doubts about subcompacts, the 2016 Chevrolet Sonic in Kansas City is bound to change your mind. After all, its top-notch safety ratings, turbocharged engine option, spacious cabin and smooth ride exceed every expectation while the driver-oriented features serve as a reminder that it is truly all about you. Perfect for zippy rides around town or efficient highway commutes, the Sonic is available today with a spunky personality you'll love from the first test drive.

From the inside out, the Sonic showcases contemporary accents. As the only subcompact equipped with a standard built-in Wi-Fi hotspot, the Sonic promises connectivity from the moment the car turns on. While LS buyers will enjoy the benefits of the 4G LTE internet connectivity, owners of the enhanced LT, LTZ and RS models will also have full access to Chevy's MyLink infotainment center via a 7-inch touchscreen. Throw in the available leather-appointed seats, rear-vision camera and heated seats and the Sonic approaches luxury-level while maintaining subcompact affordability.

Taking a good look at the 2016 Chevy Sonic in Kansas City, the hatchback and sedan models both provide a sporty road presence that is tuned with Chevy's signature dual-element grille, round taillamps and flowing headlamps. While the exterior carries over from last year, three new colors: Nightfall Gray Metallic, Mosaic Black Metallic and Kinetic Blue Metallic, add to the alluring array of customizable options.

Many 2016 Chevy Sonic reviews are especially impressed with the safety features that have established this sedan and hatchback as excellent choices fit for drivers carrying precious cargo or shoppers seeking extra peace of mind. The 10 standard airbags, "safety cage" design, LATCH anchors, OnStar and available Forward Collision Alert help contribute to the car's five-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

This safety doesn't inhibit power or efficiency, either. In fact, the standard Ecotec 1.8L engine delivers an EPA-estimated 35 mpg on the highway while the available 1.4L turbocharged four-cylinder cruises on the interstate at an EPA-estimated 40 mpg. Plus, the performance-themed RS model amps up every ride with the 1.4L turbo engine thanks to its speed-centered interior and exterior details.
