When you choose the 5-speed manual transmission, you’ll receive up to 40 mpg/highway and 29 mpg/city, while the automatic transmission will give you up to 37 mpg/highway and 27 mpg/city.

Other Performance Features

It’s not just the engine that makes the 2017 Chevrolet Sonic a star performer. You’ll appreciate everything that went into this vehicle to give you a quick and fun car to take around the Tampa area and beyond:

  • Remote Keyless Start: Whether it’s a hot Florida day or a chilly winter morning, you’ll be able to start the engine before you leave the house so you can cool down the cabin or warm it up, depending on the weather.

  • Generous Warranty Coverage: The new Chevrolet Sonic is covered with a bumper-to-bumper limited warranty for up to 36,000 miles or 3 years, whichever comes first. The powertrain is covered for up to 60,000 miles or 5 years, and you’ll have a roadside assistance program for up to 5 years or 60,000 miles, too. A 2-year maintenance warranty is also included.

  • Suspension Options: Depending on the configuration that you choose, you can pick between Touring or Sport suspension to offer you a smoother ride or more sporty thrills, respectively.

  • StabiliTrak: Maintain control around sharp curves or adverse weather conditions thanks to this stability control system that constantly monitors all four wheels to divert power or apply braking when necessary to give you the best grip on the road possible.

  • Hill Start Assist: Whether you’re stopped at a red light on a hill or parked on an incline, this feature makes sure the vehicle is always headed forward so you don’t roll backward.
