What's New For the 2019 Chevy Sonic?

In 2019, this nimble car gets several notable changes to make it more appealing than ever. For starters, this year's trim is available in a new exterior color, which is a neon green hue called "Shock."

To help you stay connected on the go, this year's Sonic also comes with a 4G WiFi hotspot. Consumers will be relieved to know that safety has not been sacrificed for luxury and technology this year. Visit us to see why this vehicle is worth of consideration.

What are the Latest Features on the 2019 Chevy Sonic?

In 2019, the Sonic is available in both a sedan and a hatchback version. The base trim level is called the LS. This trim features a number of desirable standard amenities, including automatic on/off headlights and 15-inch steel wheels with bolted on protective covers. For a more distinct look, you can upgrade to larger 17-inch aluminum wheels. Air conditioning is standard in the LS, and the front seats are a sporty bucket-style. The manual driver's seat moves in four ways, and a backup battery provides extra power when needed. Moving up to the mid-level LT, you get more standard amenities including a subscription to satellite radio. Remote start is an available feature.

Power windows are standard on this trim and up, and the seats have a premier deluxe cloth trim. The outside mirrors are heated starting with the LT. The wheels are also 15 inches, but they're made of aluminum. The LT adds another option for custom wheels, which are 16-inch aluminum. A sporty RS package, a driver confidence package, and a convenience package are optional add-on features to create a more customized ride. Moving up the Premier, you get all the standard features of the first two trim levels plus standard heated front seats. Remote start, which is available in the lower-level trims, is now standard. A heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel is standard for a more luxurious and comfortable driving experience. Also standard on this trim level are larger 17-inch wheels.

New Engine with More Zip!

2019 Chevrolet SonicThis year, Chevy does away with the previous 1.8L engine in the Sonic. Instead, it replaces the base engine with a 1.4L turbocharged engine that gives the Sonic more power and zip. The engine, which powers all three trim levels, is a four-cylinder engine that produces up to 138 HP at 4,900 RPM and up to 148 LB-FT of torque at 1,850 RPM in the automatic version and 2,500 RPM in the manual version. The engine is paired with either a six-speed automatic or a six-speed manual transmission in all three trim levels. Electronic stability control and a touring suspension help to make your drives safer and smoother.

Sonic is Loaded with Safety Features

2019 Chevrolet SonicWith a total of 10 airbags around the cabin, including front airbags for the first row, knee airbags for the driver, roof-rail airbags, and seat-mounted airbags, occupants will stay as protected as possible in case the Sonic rolls or is hit hard from any angle. The Sonic is also specially designed with a rigid frame that deflects energy in case the car is hit in a collision. Along with these passive safety features, the Sonic is also designed with active driver-assist safety features. These features include a standard backup camera for safe reversing, while rear parking assist and lane departure warning are available on the two highest trim levels.
