Chevrolet Sonic 0-60 times

Out of all performance specs, nothing but Chevrolet Sonic 0-60 times can better speak about the vehicle's temper. While horsepower and torque blow smoke in the eyes, Sonic zero to sixty specs and average time to run a quarter mile are pretty straightforward metrics allowing to compare against its competitors.

Very often there is no chance of doing Sonic 0-to-60 test personally and making conclusions from the experience of the other drivers is the last thing you want.

Conducting a trustworthy test drive requires following a strict methodology that is intended to eliminate the inconsistent circumstances like weather, tires, surface, engine temperature. It is always better to leave it for professionals.

0-60 historical competitors and progress

The powertrains for Chevy Sonic have become basically consistent since its launch in 2012. This car is a front wheel drive and its base engine is a 1.8-liter inline-4, ranked at 138 horsepower. However, the arbitrary 1.4-liter 4-cylinder that is turbo-charged enables the car to be both faster and more fuel-saving. It is again ranked at 138 hp, though its torque that is 148 pound-feet is an extra value compared to the anemic 125 lb-feet. From zero to sixty Sonic runs in 8.10s.

 

Engine specifications

The Sonic for 2018 comes with a 1.8-ltr 1-4 with 138 hp as well as 125 lb-feet of torque, that could be matched to a 6-speed automatic gear or a 5-speed manual. A 1.4-Ltr turbo-four that is ranked at 138 hp plus 148 lb-feet is optional and has six-speed six-speed automated or manual. EPA combustible economy grades for the Sonic outfitted with the usual 1.8-liter I-4 are 26/35 mpg highway with the physical or 25/34 mpg with the electronic. Alternatives with the 1.4-Ltr turbo-four are EPA-ranked at 28/37 mpg with the physical or 27/35 mpg with the automated.

 

The Interior and Exterior

The Chevrolet's Sonic 2018 has become old enough for a vehicle presently in its 7th year, aided by a renewal the previous year that modernized the front side to resemble the latest models of this type. Out of 10, we ranked the Sonic at 7 presenting it an added point for the renewed interior (look at how we rank cars.). The modernized front changes involved LED daytime running lightning, a redesigned hood and projector-laser spotlights as well as a two-part grille, having an extensive lower input and arbitrary fog lights in an opening to its side.

Again, the new one has various bright new paint colors and new wheel patterns, at 15-, 16-, or 17" sizes as per the trim measures and choices. Its significant redesigns take place every 5 years, but in between, there are no such changes. Categorizing them into generations gives more essential details in the purchasing process.
