Even the highlights of his small car get lengthy and noteworthy that starts with an eye-catching styling, continues with a host of advanced technology and includes a heightened fuel efficiency. Mechanical Excellence At the Spirit Lake Chevrolet dealer we were informed that the 2019 Chevrolet Sonic runs on a 1.4L Turbo ECOTEC 4-cylinder engine in tune with a 6-speed manual transmission. The pair makes a 138 of horsepower @ 4900 rpm and a torque of 148 lb-ft of torque @1850 rpm when driven with automatic, and 2500 rpm when driven with manual. The gear changes are smooth, precise and refined that makes the overall driving experience more exciting than tiresome. The 2019 Sonic also includes a Hill Hold feature that adds an extra layer of security while driving uphill or downhill slopes. Fuel Efficiency But the magic of the Sonic Powertrain shows up in its par excellence fuel efficiency that is rated by the EPA- as 38 mpg in the highway and 26 mpg in the city and can run 34 mpg when the trip combines both city and highway drives. Exterior The 2019 Chevrolet sonic looks smart and elegant when it stands on the standard 15″ steel wheels with the special bolt-on covers. To ensure it never gets stuck, Chevrolet has equipped the car with all-season blackwall tires, that soar through extreme climatic and road conditions. The Projector-beam headlamps with Automatic on/off feature helps in keeping your way illuminated whenever you need them and turn off automatically when you don’t. The glass of the Sonic exterior gets tinted when it absorbs solar power and save the car dwellers from the glaring sun automatically. Interior The interior of the 2019 Chevrolet Sonic has much more pleasant surprises packed within. As you get in the Sport Cloth upholstery displays a neat environment where you can relax and enjoy the ride. The front bucket seats are more comforting with recline and height-adjustable headrests (STD), while driver and front passenger seat can be adjusted in 4-way manual and 2-way manual respectively. The leather-wrapped 3-spoke steering wheel is a pleasure for the driver with steering-wheel mounted controls that includes the audio system, phone interface and cruise controls allowing the driver to operate them with ease. To accommodate your stuff the cabin gets split into 60/40 ratio giving a 47.7 cu. ft of Cargo Space.

All this is integrated with smartphone technology through the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
