2016 Chevrolet Sonic

If you’ve been on the lookout for a small car with impressive versatility and confident performance, the 2016 Chevrolet Sonic is an excellent way to go. Available in both sedan and hatchback formats, the newest version of the Chevrolet Sonic is available from an incredibly affordable MSRP of just $14,345. The savings won’t stop there, though, because the newest Chevrolet Sonic delivers confident performance while also getting incredible fuel economy on the road. Take a look at this model’s mpg ratings.

1.8L Four-Cylinder

The base engine on the 2016 Chevrolet Sonic, which comes standard on the LS and LT trims, is a 1.8L inline-four. It generates 138 hp and 125 lb-ft of torque delivered to the front wheels via a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. With the manual, you can expect an EPA-estimated 35 mpg highway and 26 mpg city, while the automatic transmission will get you an EPA-estimated 35 mpg highway and 24 mpg city.

Turbocharged 1.4L Four-Cylinder

If you’d like more power and even better fuel economy, you might consider upgrading to the LTZ or RS trim for the turbocharged engine, which is also a cost-added option on the LT. This turbocharged 1.4L four-cylinder engine pumps out 138 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque via a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. On the LT and LTZ models, you can expect an EPA-estimated 40 mpg highway and 29 mpg city with the manual transmission or 37 mpg highway and 27 mpg city with the automatic.

The RS features more sport-tuned gear ratios. While this helps it achieve more responsive performance, it decreases fuel economy slightly to 34 mpg highway and 27 mpg city with the manual and 33 mpg highway and 25 mpg city with the automatic.
