What's New For the 2019 Chevy Sonic?

Admittedly, "fast," "cool," and "tech-savvy" are not the first words many people think of when they think of subcompact cars. But this year, the zippy Chevy Sonic returns, back and better than ever, with a more powerful base engine, a new paint color option, and a refreshed interior packed with the most technology in its class. This year, you can choose to get your Sonic in a bold new neon green color called "Shock." The infotainment system found on the latest Sonic, which is a seven-inch infotainment display screen complete with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, is the best in its class. There are also more safety features - both standard and available - that make the Sonic safer than ever. In fact, with all the safety amenities it offers, the Sonic earns a top-notch five-star crash test rating.

Exciting Trim Options & Advanced Tech Features

In the 2019 model year, the Sonic comes in both a sedan and a hatchback version. There are three trim levels available in both body styles. The base model is called the LS. On this model, standard amenities to look forward to include steering-wheel mounted controls to safely operate the infotainment system, a tilt-telescopic steering wheel, and power-operated door locks. Air conditioning is standard, and bucket seats give the base trim a sporty, race-ready feel. The driver's seat is multi-adjustable in four ways, and a battery provides extra backup power to the engine when needed.

The mid-level trim is called the LT. This trim builds on the LS's amenities with a subscription to satellite radio, deluxe cloth seats, and power-operated windows. Heated outside mirrors are standard, and although it comes with 15-inch aluminum wheels like the base model, you have the option of upgrading to larger 16-inch wheels if you desire. Several packages are available to enhance your ride, including a convenience package and a driver confidence package.

The Premier has even more standard amenities, including remote start capability and heated front seats for the driver and passenger. This trim also comes standard with larger painted 17-inch aluminum wheels for a more dramatic effect. You can also choose to get your Premier with hand-painted black aluminum wheels for a more authentic look. There are a number of available amenities to accent this model, including an RS package that gives you fog lamps, rocker moldings, special lettering, a piano-black instrument panel, and a sporty leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Enhanced Power & Performance

The engine is a 1.4L, four-cylinder engine that generates up to 138 HP at 4,900 RPM and produces up to 148 LB-FT of torque at 1,850 RPM in the automatic version and 2,500 RPM in the manual version. All trim levels are available with either a six-speed automatic or manual drivetrain configuration. For driver convenience, the Sonic's additional mechanical technology includes anti-lock disc brakes and hill start assist to help you start with power and confidence on even the steepest inclines without a problem.

Trusted Vehicle Safety & Protection

2019 Chevrolet SonicDespite the fact that it is a small car, the Sonic is surprisingly safe. Throughout the cabin, a total of 10 airbags keep occupants in the Sonic safe in case of an accident. There are also a number of accident-avoidance technologies that help to stop accidents before they start, such as a backup camera, which is standard on all trim levels. Child safety door locks are also standard on all trim levels. Available safety technology includes lane departure warning, forward-collision warning, and rear parking assistance. These safety features are available in all but the base model.
