When it comes to subcompact vehicles, one of the top models in the class is the Chevy Sonic. Introduced as a 2012 model year car, the Sonic delivers a stylish exterior, plenty of interior space, and excellent handling and speed. At your Chevy dealership near Bloomingdale, we expect the 2015 Chevy Sonic to improve upon this legacy. While not much information is currently available, our staff at Sunrise Chevy in Glendale Heights can still speculate as to what the 2015 model will most likely offer.
No Powertrain Changes Expected
We don’t expect to see many, if any, changes to the powertrain on the 2015 Chevy Sonic. It’s expected that the standard engine will be a 1.8L four-cylinder that produces 138 hp and 125 lb-ft of torque, the same engine as the current 2014 Sonic. The 2015 RS trim level will come standard with a 1.4L turbocharged four-cylinder engine delivering 138 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque and be paired with ether a six-speed manual or automatic transmission.
It has been rumored that the 2015 Sonic will offer an EPA-estimated 26 mpg city/35 mpg highway/30 mpg combined fuel economy rating when using the standard 1.8L four-cylinder engine. RS models are expected to offer 29 mpg city/40 mpg highway/33 mpg combined fuel economy.
With the 2015 Chevy Sonic, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see features that you wouldn't normally see on subcompacts. LTZ and RS models will offer a standard rearview camera, while all trims except the LS will come with impending frontal collision and unintended lane departure warning systems.
You’re also likely to see features such as remote start, heated front seats, leather upholstery, Bluetooth connectivity, and the Chevrolet MyLink system. You could also see an onboard navigation system, a rarity in the segment.
