The Sonic is a car that you've undoubtedly seen all over the road since it replaced the Aveo. With its small size, and safety as well as speed it has become a sought after car within the Chevy nameplate. The Sonic Turbo is being given even more options!
The Sonic Turbo's fuel-efficient Ecotec 1.4L turbo engine is now going to be couple with an automatic transmission. The manual Sonic Turbo was able to achieve a 0-60 time of 7.8 seconds, beating out the competition. Amazingly, the Sonic Turbo Automatic lost .2 seconds, and still has a 0-60 time of 8 seconds.
Bob Benedict, the assistant chief engineer of the ecotec 1.4L had this to say: "Traditionally, turbocharging was used to enhance the performance of engines, but today it is as much about fuel economy as a 0-60 time. The turbocharger provides high-pressure airflow for high torque to boost the vehicle and give the driver a fun driving experience with improved fuel efficiency."
The Sonic's fuel efficiency also was barely effected on the option. The traditional Sonic Turbo gets 40 mpg on the highway and 29 in the city. The new automatic Sonic Turbo will get 37 mpg on the highway and 27 mpg in the city.
