As much as we like big, expensive, million-horsepower super cars, we also appreciate the joy there is in living with a small, efficient and reasonably basic car. Not all of them, of course, but something like the new 2017 Chevrolet Sonic definitely makes the grade as a good little no-fuss city car.

We like what GM designers have done with the looks of 2017 Chevrolet Sonic, giving it a face like that of Chevy’s bigger products such as Cruze and Trax. The grille/bumper/headlight combination is cute enough to appeal to female buyers, who will make up the bulk of this car’s customer base, and yet manly enough for a young male to be seen in it and not be embarrassed about it.

One thing about 2017 Chevrolet Sonic which makes it a pleasant car to live with on a daily basis is the interior and equipment level. It boasts a refined design and good quality materials, and comes with pretty much you’d want in a car of this class, and then some. You get power driver seat, Keyless Open and Start, heated cloth seats with new heated steering wheel (optional), 7-inch-diagonal infotainment system with features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and 4G LTE with Wi-Fi hotspot. What’s more, if you go for the RS trim level, you get RS-logo floor mats, piano black décor, RS-badged flat-bottom steering wheel and red upholstery.

The new Chevy Sonic launches with a Ecotec 1.8L engine and a 138-hp 1.4 liter turbo with a six-speed automatic or manual transmission. The 1.4 is the more logical choice really, as it suits the character of the car better. As for safety, the little city car boasts  air bags, Stabilitrak electronic stability control and an antilock braking as standard, with Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning available as optional extra.
