Chevrolet’s popular subcompact, the Sonic, is being updated for the 2017 model year.
The updated version makes its debut next week at the 2016 New York Auto Show and brings a fresh look plus some latest technology.
Some of the new tech, either standard or available, includes Chevy’s latest MyLink infotainment system with 7.0-in touchscreen, 4G LTE with Wi-Fi hotsport, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, rear park assist, rearview camera, power driver’s seat, keyless open and start, and heated seats and steering wheel.
The standard engine remains a 1.8-liter 4-cylinder. However, a little extra bite can be had thanks to an available turbocharged 1.4-liter 4-cylinder. The latter offers up 138horsepower and can be had with either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic.
Sales of the 2017 Sonic commence this fall.
