All Transmissions Include:
The base model of the 2012 Chevy Sonic comes standard with a turbocharged 1.4-liter engine with six-speed manual transmission. The new automatic transmission will be available in spring 2012. The car's features are ample, including leatherette seats, heated front seats, a sunroof, cruise control, and AM/FM/CD/MP3/AUX/Bluetooth audio system. It also comes with steering-wheel controls and an optional navigation system.
A six-speed automatic transmission is available for the 2012 Chevrolet Sonic, which improves fuel economy. The 1.4-liter turbo engine produces enough power to produce 184 horsepower, but it reduces fuel efficiency by ten miles per gallon. It's still a better choice than a manual transmission, but the lack of desire to drive a manual transmission reduces gas mileage by about 10%.
The 1.4-liter engine is expected to be a big seller, but its gas mileage is less impressive than many rivals. It earns 26 mpg city/highway with a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic. If you have an option turbocharged model, the mileage jumps to 29/40 mpg. The car's six-speed automatic transmission can be a more expensive choice.
A 1.4-liter turbocharged engine in the base model of the Chevrolet Sonic gets 35 mpg on the highway. This is impressive in a car in this segment, which is known for its low price and fuel efficiency. The vehicle's optional turbocharged 1.4-liter engine improves its highway mileage to 40 mpg. The six-speed manual is the only way to get this turbocharged engine. The six-speed automatic will be available later this year.
While the Sonic's design may remind you of a motorcycle, the car is surprisingly comfortable. The seats are supportive and the standard alloy wheels help to tune out road noise. The cabin is small but comfortable, with enough room for four adults. Its price is competitive with other cars in the segment. It's great to have room for five passengers, but the price tag isn't the only factor.

A 1.8-liter engine has 136 horsepower, and a six-speed automatic can reach the same speed in eight seconds. Compared to its rivals, the Sonic is the fastest compact car in its segment, but the turbo is not the only option. Aside from the automatic transmission, there are other options available with the standard 6-speed manual.
