The 2015 Chevrolet Sonic Changes for the Better
Changes made to 2015 Chevrolet Sonic add features and functionality to all trim levels and improved performance to the topmost trims. From several new colors from which to choose, to Wi-Fi capability, to the turbocharged engine, the 2015 Chevrolet Sonic just keeps getting better and better.
Standard Turbocharged Engine
All 2015 Chevrolet Sonic LTZ trims now boast a standard turbocharged 1.4L four-cylinder engine as a standard. It also can be found under the hood of the RS, and is optional for the LT. This turbocharged engine produces 138 hp, identical to the 1.8L four-cylinder’s output on the LS and LT trims. However, its 148 lb-ft of torque proves far more powerful.
With a standard six-speed manual transmission, the engine garners 40 highway mpg on the LT and LTZ trims and 34 highway mpg on the RS. The optional six-speed automatic transmission adjusts fuel economy only slightly to 37 highway mpg on the LT and LTZ trims and 33 highway mpg on the RS.
Wi-Fi For Everyone
The most prominent new electronic features on the 2015 Chevrolet Sonic is the OnStar telematics system, a GM function that allows you to contact OnStar headquarters for assistance at any time. You can get roadside assistance, an update on your vehicle’s systems, turn-by-turn navigation, and more. Plus, it includes 4G LTE Wi-Fi, allowing you and your passengers to connect to the Internet while on the road for anything from streaming music to staying in touch with the latest apps. Up to seven devices can connect to the hotspot at a time.
New Shades of Blue and Green
The latest Chevy Sonic also gets attractive new paint colors. The Blue Velvet Metallic is a soft yet eye-catching hue, while the Dragon Green promotional package gives your Sonic a bright, unique look sure to stand out on the road.
