Chevrolet Sonic



  • I'd like to know how the Sonic hatchback performs in snow driving.

    You are right. Chevy is a car for the masses. Buick is for those who cannot afford Cadillacs. And I no longer have a wallet, I carry a man purse, it's European. Maybe I should buy a rebadged Opel Mokka.

  • 2015 Sonic 1.8l automatic - MPG

    Well , here it is winter . Not running the A/C .

    Our little Sonic has 24,000 + miles . Filled it up last Saturday . We have run several errands , 100% in town . The guess-o-meter on the dash is showing 29.5 + MPG .

    Only modification is a self installed after market cruse control .

    Last summer it got 23 - 24 MPG with the A/C being used much of the time .

    I am happy . :-)

    God bless

    Longest road trip in 2016 sonic was 2600 miles roundtrip, boston to MN and back. on 4 snow tires. we hit zero snow but the snows made the car wander/track worse than with the factory tires. it was OK but i prefer larger car for long haul.
  • We have a 2015 Sonic . Fine for in town use . A little small for 2 large size senior citizens . For road trips .

    But that is not the car's fault .

    Not surprised about the snow tires , on dry roads . Nature of the beast . I have owned only 2 snow tires in over 45 years of driving ( about 40 years ago ) . Best I remember , they acted that way too . I learned my sesson .

    We do not get enough ice / snow in a " normal " winter to justify snow tires .

    We replaced the OEM tires on our Sonic at about 40,000 miles .

    God bless
