The base trim of the 2016 Chevy Sonic is designed to accommodate a diverse range of driving needs:

  • Phenomenal Powertrains: The 2016 Sonic LS comes equipped with a ECOTEC® 1.8L 4-cylinder engine capable of 138 hp and 125 lb.-ft. of torque, as well as the choice of either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission system.

  • Prolific Fuel Efficiency: Properly equipped, the 2016 Sonic LS earns an EPA-estimated 26 mpg/city and 35 mpg/highway. Combined with a 12.2 gallon fuel tank, this year’s LS can take you anywhere without breaking the bank at the gas pump.

  • Prodigious Cargo Space: Inside the cabin, the LS trim offers a maximum of 47.7 cubic feet of cargo space with collapsed rear row seating. With front legroom estimated at 41.8 inches and 34.6 inches in the rear, you’ve got more than enough space to stretch and recline with ease.

  • Piano Black Accents: Thanks to elegant exterior accents decorated in a lusciously smooth tint of obsidian coating, the 2016 Chevrolet Sonic RS makes a bold statement through its presence alone.
