The 2014 Chevy Sonic vs. the 2014 Ford Fiesta

2014 Chevrolet SonicWhen you want a new, stylish hatchback near Tampa, you know you can visit Cox Chevy in Bradenton for the 2014 Chevy Sonic. The Sonic is here right alongside the rest of the Chevrolet lineup, and when you want versatility, comfort, and more in a new car, you’ll have a hard time finding a vehicle that can one-up the Sonic. The Sonic is easily affordable, has room for you and your friends, and gets great gas mileage.

The small hatchback has been making a comeback in recent years, and competitors have added new vehicles or brought back old favorites. Does the 2014 Ford Fiesta have what it takes to go up against the Sonic?

Drivers Get More Power in a Chevy

While Ford may be the brand known for the Mustang, they seem to slip behind Chevrolet in the power ratings of their vehicles quite a lot. The Sonic’s four-cylinder engine is rated at 138 hp and 125 lb-ft of torque, compared to the Fiesta’s 120 hp and 112 lb-ft of torque. That’s a difference you’ll notice as you put the pedal down and head onto the highway.

Find More in the Sonic

Chevrolet also gives drivers more than Ford when it comes to their hatchback. To start with, the Sonic gives drivers more room to move around, offering a longer wheelbase and increased overall width over the Fiesta.

The Sonic also comes standard with OnStar telematics in addition to many other modern features. And if you’re concerned about how long your car’s going to last—and who isn’t—you can have confidence in the Chevy warranty, which gives you more miles than the Ford. Chevy’s powertrain warranty covers five years or 100,000 miles compared to the Ford warranty of 5 years and 60,000 miles.

So, that’s more room, more features, and more peace of mind. We think the choice between the Fiesta and the Sonic is pretty clear.
