Chevrolet recently introduced the 2017 Sonic – a more expressive, sporty take on the brand’s fun-to-drive small car. It offers drivers big technologies such as a new MyLink system with segment-exclusive Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and a fresh exterior with new LED signature lighting.

The updated styling complements new comfort and convenience features such as an available heated steering wheel and a standard 7-inch-diagonal color touchscreen for the new MyLink system. Rear Park Assist is also new, adding to one of the most comprehensive safety packages in the segment.

“We anticipate the 2017 Sonic will attract first-time and returning customers alike with its new design and leading technology – all at an affordable price,” said Alan Gamblin. “All the while continuing its reputation of being a fun-to-drive and efficient small car.”

The 2017 Sonic goes on sale this fall, offered in LS, LT and Premier trims on sedan models. The hatchback returns exclusively in RS guise, offered in LT and Premier trims. An RS package is also available on the sedan.

 Sonic’s athletic exterior has an entirely new, expressive look echoing the global Chevrolet cues seen on vehicles such as the Cruze, Bolt EV and 2017 Trax. It is a richer, more detailed design, with the front end featuring a new hood, new front fascia and new lighting elements. Projector-beam headlamps are standard, along with available LED daytime running lamps. Likewise, the rear fascia is new. There are also new 15-, 16- and 17-inch wheel designs and four new exterior colors offered in 2017: Orange Burst Metallic, Brimstone, Cajun Red Tintcoat and Arctic Blue Metallic (late availability).

 Drivers will find the Sonic’s thoughtful interior retains its focus on delivering comfort, convenience and technology. A new, detailed gauge cluster incorporating an analog speedometer adds a higher degree of refinement to the cabin, complementing additional new comfort and convenience features.

For 2017, Sonic becomes the first in its segment to offer a power driver’s seat. Additional new features include:

  • Keyless Open and Start
  • Available heated cloth seats with new heated steering wheel
  • RS trim includes RS-logo floor mats, piano black décor, RS-badged flat-bottom steering wheel – with new, red cloth seating available.

Also new is a 7-inch-diagonal infotainment system designed to support the latest connectivity technologies, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and 4G LTE with Wi-Fi hotspot. With the available 4G LTE connection, Sonic provides a Wi-Fi hotspot that allows passengers to connect up to seven compatible devices such as smartphones, laptops and tablets, to high-speed wireless Internet.




2012 Chevrolet Sonic Safety

Here at Art Gamblin Motors we are delighted to present the new Chevrolet Sonic because it is an excellent car that offers high performance, efficiency, functionality and also a very high level of safety. The Sonic has achieved the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Top Safety Pick and a 5-star overall vehicle score for safety. This means that the sonic performed at the highest levels in all categories of crash testing. This is not surprising when you consider the extensive list of cutting edge safety features that the Sonic offers. The Sonic uses 10 airbags—that’s more airbags than most full-size cars! The Sonic also uses a traction control system that limits wheel spin if any of the wheels lose traction. The amazing StabiliTrak Stability Control System employed by the Sonic constantly makes sure that the Sonic is following the drivers intended path. If the Sonic doesn’t seem to be following the driver’s intentions, the system will automatically engage the appropriate break and traction systems to correct course.

The Sonic’s braking system is highly advanced; utilizing 4-wheel antilock brakes, a break assist system that engages the antilock system and other features very fast in case of an emergency situation. The Chevy Sonic uses a tire pressure monitoring system that warns you when specific tire pressure is low. The Sonic has automatic daytime running lamps that help you be seen on the road. The Body-Frame Integral design of the Sonic greatly enhances the crash and roll protection of the vehicle. The Chevy Sonic is constructed of 60% high grade steel, making the roof strong enough to support 4 times the Sonics weight! The Chevrolet Sonic is equipped with 10 airbags—the most is its segment and more than some vehicles in a larger class! All the safety belts in the Sonic use 3 point safety technologies and the back seat of the Sonic has a special anchoring system in place for car seats. OnStar, standard in all models of the Sonic, has an automatic crash response system that calls for help in case of an accident.
