Inside and out, the 2017 Sonic’s design is one of the most underrated aspects of the vehicle. The exterior has been updated to include a number of new amenities, like a new front fascia and an aerodynamic hood. Meanwhile, the interior includes classy upholsteries as well as an incredible amount of cargo room.
Sure, an SUV’s interior and exterior may not be atop your list of priorities as you’re looking for a new vehicle. However, considering all that the 2017 Chevy Sonic has to offer, it’s undoubtedly something that shouldn’t be ignored.
Get ready to forget any preconceived notions you may have had about compact design. This new Sonic, available as a sedan or hatchback, features a refreshed design throughout to give it the sporty look of a performance vehicle without sacrificing the convenience of its smart size.
If you’re purchasing a new car, you obviously want it to look good. Fortunately, the 2017 Sonic is one of the most stylish hatchbacks and sedans on today's market. Engineers updated the vehicle’s exterior, tweaking the hood, front fascia, and even the vibrant LED daytime running lights. This leads to a modern, sportier look that any driver can on board with.
If a potential buyer is really looking to impress, they can opt for the RS package. This offering includes rocker moldings, a rear spoiler, and a three-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel. If you’re really looking to boost the athleticism of your Chevy Sonic, then this is the perfect option for you.
Taking cues from globally successful models like the Bolt EV, Cruze, and upcoming 2017 Trax, the 2017 Sonic features a refined front end, including a new hood design, a new front fascia with the classic Chevy bowtie emblazoned in the center, and new lighting elements like standard projector-beam headlamps and available LED daytime running lamps. A variety of wheel sizes - 15, 16, and 17-inch, offer you the opportunity to choose exactly the kind of look you want on your Sonic. Plus, with a new rear fascia and four available colors for your choosing - Orange Burst Metallic, Brimstone, Cajun Red Tintcoat, and Arctic Blue Metallic - you can make your Sonic your own and still be sure to get great modern style, regardless.
The interior continues that athleticism with sleek angles and modern technology. For those seeking comfort and entertainment, you’d be hard pressed to find a vehicle that offers a better bang for its buck than the Sonic. With comfy seats and a classy cabin, all of your occupants will enjoy what the vehicle has to offer.
However, the vehicle is truly known for its incredible (and surprising) amount of interior room. Thanks to the 60/40 split-folding rear seats (available in both the sedan and the hatchback), drivers will be able to unlock significantly more interior room. For example, the hatchback provides drivers with 47.7-cubic-feet of cargo room, making it easy to store any kind of luggage or equipment.
The interior of the 2017 Chevy Sonic revolves around three main principles: comfort, convenience, and technology. Built to comfortably hold up to five passengers, the Sonic provides plenty of cargo space and comfort amenities to turn any boring drive into a desirable ride. Available heated cloth seats with a new heated steering wheel and power driver's seat bring tactile luxury into this bold interior design, while a new, detailed gauge cluster that includes an analog speedometer helps to introduce a bit of refinement to the cockpit. Together, these new comfort and convenience features help make the Sonic one of the best passenger experiences on our radar for the 2017 model year.
