Chevrolet Sonic Hatchback Vs Nissan Versa Hatchback

The gloves are off and the match is set in the challenge of subcompact cars, with today’s contenders being the Chevrolet Sonic Hatchback and the Nissan Versa. It’s hard to consider one without the other, so we at Cox Chevrolet have taken the liberty of seeing how these two vehicles match up head-to-head.

The All-New Sonic is Seriously Pumped

Out of all the fantastic Chevys in our new inventory, there’s little that gets us as excited as the new Sonic and its incredible turbo-charged engine! Offering the only pumped-up engine in its class, the all-new 2013 Chevrolet Sonic Hatchback offers power packed 1.4L turbocharged block sporting 138 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque. This little number puts you at 0-to-60 in less than 8 seconds, which is pretty impressive for a subcompact car. The Nissan Versa pops in with a 1.8L engine, but scoots in with 122 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque. Even with its CVT, Continual Variable Transmission, it’s just not going to beat the Chevy Sonic off the block.

Armed with such snappy acceleration, the 2012 Chevrolet Sonic is quite at ease dancing through the busyness in the modern day commute. Sudden stops and quick highway traffic are truly welcomed by this all-new Sonic.  You can also look forward to commuting for less is with the 2012 Chevy Sonic, as it zips along with an EPA estimate of 29 city/40 hwy mpg. The Nissan Versa, on the other hand, brings you in an EPA estimated 26 city/31 hwy mpg. Commuting for less puts more of your hard earned paycheck back in your wallet, and that’s a reason for a few more cheers for the Chevy Sonic!
